"We're thrilled to join Kevin, Sandra, Chris and the rest of the Lionsgate team," said the Tannenbaums. "Their television business is perfectly aligned with our own approach to creating great programming in an entrepreneurial and talent-friendly environment, and we can hardly wait to contribute to one of the most exciting slates in the industry today."
