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.

Would you watch “Tyler TV?”
