Eric Tannenbaum has also served as founder and president of Artists Television Group, president of Columbia TriStar Television, and EVP of Television at New World Entertainment. While at Columbia TriStar, he helped shepherd such comedy hits as the multiple Golden Globe(R) winner Mad About You, The Nanny, The King of Queens, Dawson's Creek, and Party of Five. Kim Tannenbaum developed The Ellen Show and The $treet while serving as EVP of creative affairs at ATG and The King of Queens as an executive at Columbia TriStar Television.

"We're delighted to partner with Eric and Kim, two of the most gifted and prolific television producers in the industry," said Lionsgate Television Group Chairman Kevin Beggs. "They have shepherded a roster of iconic series and we look forward to working together."

"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."

The Tannenbaums join a star-studded Lionsgate creative roster that includes Courtney Kemp (Power, Get Christie Love), Paul Feig (The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale), Nashville's Ed Zwick & Marshall Herskovitz, Joel Silver (The Matrix and Lethal Weapon franchises) and Dexter's John Goldwyn, among others.
