LOS ANGELES: Launching on Netflix in the U.S. this summer, Orange Is the New Black, a new drama set in a women’s prison, is a lead offering from Lionsgate.
At the L.A. Screenings, Lionsgate will be talking to international buyers about the show, along with Chasing Life, a drama, and Saint George, a character-driven sitcom led by George Lopez. The company is also presenting the comedy Satisfaction and the docu-soap Tequila Sisters, as well as established hits such as Mad Men, Anger Management and Nashville.
Peter Iacono, Lionsgate’s managing director for international television, says, “The May Screenings has to be the best time of the year to be in the content business. There is an incredible buzz and genuine excitement across the city as hosts of international buyers descend on L.A. to search for the next hit for their country.”
