At MipTV in Cannes on Tuesday, Lionsgate Television’s president of international television and digital distribution Peter Iacono gave international buyers a taste of the studio’s slate to be presented at the L.A. Screenings.
In an onstage presentation, Iacono reminded buyers that Lionsgate has been transformed since the Mipcom conference in October following the merger with Starz.
“We have doubled in size, and one of the key strategic advantages of this merger is you’re going to see — not at this L.A. Screenings, but at subsequent screenings and beyond — having a network is going to allow us to have more productions and retain more rights,” he said. “So we’re very, very excited about that.”
“Ten Days in the Valley,” which stars Kyra Sedgwick, will be the “cornerstone” of the L.A. Screenings for Lionsgate, Iacono said. The show, which is the first fruits of its co-venture with Skydance Media, will »

Thank god that's over.
Not the guy throwing cement off of bridges (terrible, sure), or mopey Otis (definitely painful). No, it was Chicago Fire Season 5 Episode 17's continuous use of "portapotty" and "portatoilet" that was killing me.
I hate those words. Couldn't they have gone with the classier "portalet"?
Despite the unfortunate word choice, "Babies and Fools" was really solid. Sure, Gabby was becoming a little obsessed, but that's just Gabby. Honestly, it's a shame her job at the arson investigators office didn't pan out. She's got the chops for it.

I'm also left wondering if Gabby and Matt are still on the same page about things.
On the surface, Matt's response to her inquiry was very sweet, »
