Lionsgate Partners With Simon Fuller on Musical Drama

Lionsgate has partnered with producer Simon Fuller on a new musical drama.

The show will focus on an up-and-coming California rock 'n' roll band, chronicling the lives of its four members. Lionsgate and Fuller have already begun casting the band members. The series is being shaped for both broadcast and cable outlets.

"Simon Fuller has created some of the most successful and enduring franchises in entertainment today," said Kevin Beggs, president, Lionsgate Television Group and Sandra Stern, COO, Lionsgate Television, in a statement. "We believe that this musical drama about a young rock 'n' roll band will have global resonance with the same young audiences that have fueled the success of other Lionsgate franchises. From American Idol to Spice Girls, Simon has consistently demonstrated the ability to generate brands and formats with enormous worldwide appeal."

"I am full of positive anticipation for this new collaboration and delighted to partner with Jon Feltheimer, Kevin Beggs and the rest of the team at Lionsgate, one of the most dynamic and innovative companies in the entertainment industry," added Fuller.
