Lionsgate Launching ‘Tyler Perry Network?’
Oprah got her own network….why not Tyler Perry?
Lionsgate Films, the company that distributes Perry’s film, announced plans to hopefully give the media mogul a network of his own. Says Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer:
“Tyler is one of those rare resources that one could launch a channel with. We have a lot of options if we choose to go down that path…”
The plan would be to buy and rebrand a not fully distributed channel or pursue a “nesting strategy” with a channel it already has. Smart move. Perry’s film have grossed $520 million dollars worldwide and his DVD’s have sold more than 40 million units.
