Studio's 6-Hour SCI FI Miniseries THE LOST ROOM Garners 2 Additional Emmy Nods

SANTA MONICA, Calif., July 19 -- Lionsgate's (NYSE: LGF) acclaimed Showtime comedy WEEDS has scored five Emmy Award(R) nominations, including nods for Mary-Louise Parker for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series; Elizabeth Perkins for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series; Amy McIntyre Britt and Anya Colloff for Outstanding Casting for a Comedy Series; and David Helfand and William Turro, who earned individual nominations in the Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series category for two separate episodes.

Lionsgate's six-hour SCI FI miniseries THE LOST ROOM also received Emmy nominations for Outstanding Main Title Design by Thomas Cobb and Robert Bradley and Outstanding Sound Mixing for A Miniseries or A Movie by Bayard Carey, Rick Alexander and Rich Rogers.

"This kind of acknowledgement from the TV Academy is very exciting," said Kevin Beggs, Lionsgate's president of programming and production. "We're thrilled for all of our Emmy nominees and salute the outstanding casts and crews on both of these productions."

Widely praised for its bold and provocative look at the complicated life of a suburban, pot-dealing mother, WEEDS returns to Showtime for its third season of 15 new episodes on Monday, August 13.
