LOS ANGELES and SANTA MONICA, Calif., and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 1 -- Lionsgate(R) (NYSE: LGF), the leading independent filmed entertainment studio, and Comcast Entertainment Group, which operates Comcast's West Coast entertainment properties, have forged a first-look partnership where Lionsgate obtains the home entertainment distribution rights to popular series airing on E!
