Lionsgate revs up series for Mipcom

MUMBAI: Poised for yet another power-packed MIPCOM, Lionsgate, led by Peter Iacono, managing director, international television, is arriving to Cannes with a stellar line-up of diverse programming and groundbreaking content.

From the Emmy Award winning creators of Arrested Development comes Running Wilde, (13 x 30), an unconventional new romantic comedy premiering on FOX this fall. Will Arnett (30 Rock, Arrested Development)) stars as Steven Wilde, a self-centered heir who has everything money can buy except his childhood sweetheart, Emmy, played by Keri Russell (Felicity). Steven will go to any length to woo his adolescent crush, but quickly discovers that money can’t buy you love.

Big Lake, (10 x 30) premiering on Comedy Central this fall, revolves around the exploits of former financial whiz-kid Josh Franklin (Chris Gethard), who is forced to move back in with his parents and derelict younger brother after his (and his parents’) wealth disintegrates with the collapse of the stock market. Determined to right the wrongs, Josh and a motley crew of childhood friends plot and scheme their way towards fiscal salvation.

This Is Not My Life (13 x 60) follows Alec Ross (Charles Mesure), who seemingly suffers memory loss following a tragic accident. His utopian life seems too good to be true and unfortunately, it probably is. Through sporadic episodes of flashbacks, Alec catches glimpses into an alternate past which enables him to start piecing together the truth to his real identity.
