    Thanks for the catch. I had no idea Burns appeared on Fast Money that day. My favorite quote: "...the reboots we think are going to come..." Hmmm... any chance Twilight could be one of them?

    Yahoo won't let me post the rest of the article. Google Lionsgate or the headline.

    Beggs' apparent startup, however, is driving toward a goal of $100 million in annual profitability, underpinned by the longevity of its hit shows.
    The key to success, he adds, is taking advantage of a rapidly expanding array of digital platforms that takes Lionsgate well beyond the traditional confines of American network TV.

    "It all happens much sooner. The windows open up sooner. People want content quickly. Carriers that we're selling it to want to hold onto it. That's the new battleground, between stacking and SVOD and who gets what, when and what's the value," Beggs said, describing an unfolding TV landscape.
    Unaligned with a major network, Lionsgate as an outside supplier thrives by converting ongoing rights to TV shows it produces into digital revenue.

    So while Lionsgate has a hit in Nashville, which is headed to a third season on ABC, it's also headed toward syndication and second cycle windows on other TV titles via innovative streaming deals.
    A case in point is the binge-watcher Orange Is the New Black, whose second season has just debuted on Netflix and already has been renewed for a third season by the U.S.-based video streaming giant.
    "They will watch the whole season. And then they will wait for another year. And that will be painful," Beggs said of fans watching each season of Orange Is the New Black in one go, or until sleep overtakes them, as opposed to scheduled, extended viewing.

    And Beggs points to Deadbeat proving a hit with international buyers at the recent Los Angeles Screenings after being picked up for a second season on Hulu on the heels of its first-season launch.

  • Kevin Beggs told the Banff Festival how the mini-studio is creating content for the next wave of premiere content distributors in an expanding streaming and subscription pay universe.

    BANFF, ALBERTA – Lionsgate TV Group chairman Kevin Beggs took to the stage at the Banff World Media Festival on Monday for what was expected to be an applause-filled victory lap.

    But the 15-year Lionsgate veteran, who has helped the mini-studio grow to major Hollywood status with TV hits like Mad Men, Weeds, Nurse Jackie, Anger Management and Orange Is the New Black, didn't come to brag.
    Instead his simple keynote message to Banff delegates was Lionsgate TV is just catching fire.
    "We view ourselves as just starting," Beggs told the Banff Springs Hotel audience as he answered questions from the iconic former CBS newsman Dan Rather.

    To be sure, increasing demand for Lionsgate TV shows has put the mini-studio's TV group in an enviable position.
    But Beggs told The Hollywood Reporter after his keynote address that he goes to work every day assuming he leads a startup.
    "And you have to act on these opportunities as if, should they not work, you will be out of business," he added. (contd.)

    What took so long? 8 whole minutes to break even and touch $27. Let's go LGF, close over $27! ;)

    I guess not. Presently the stock is down 1% while most of my stocks are soaring. In contrast, KMI had a presentation on Monday and the stock is now up 6%+ since then. One day after LGF's presentation I find myself hoping it will break even today. 3 1/2 hours to go, show me some love LGF!

  • Let's see if this conference presentation translates into a higher stock price on Friday.

    " “Orange is the New Black” will take over from “Mad Men” as TV’s buzziest show, Lionsgate’s TV distribution chief said Thursday at the Gabelli & Company Movie and Entertainment Conference in Gotham.

    “That’s our next ‘Mad Men,’ ” said Jim Packer, Lionsgate’s president of worldwide TV & digital distribution.

    Lionsgate’s television arm produces the Netflix series about the rough-and-tumble residents of a women’s prison, just as it backed the ground-breaking AMC period drama set in the advertising world. He noted that it took “Mad Men” five years to snag a cover story from Time magazine — a feat that “Orange is the New Black” pulled off in its second season.

    “Mad Men” is slated to end its seven-season run next year."

    Wait! If we're going there, then how about (Eventual) T.V. series based upon Hunger Games, Divergent, Ender's Game, The Expendables or even Saw? These could be for TVGN, SyFy, FX, etc. Ender's Game and The Expendables could be animated for Saturday mornings.

    Maybe even Warm Bodies for the Hallmark channel?

    I can't wait. The show sounds promising and I expect the show to go the full 100. Another success story won't hurt the stock price either.
