SANTA MONICA, Calif. and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 16, 2018 -- Global content leader Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B) has signed an overall television deal with Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) winning writer-producer Jenny Bicks to develop and produce original television series.

"Jenny has helmed some of the most iconic television series and we couldn't be more excited to welcome her to our creative team," said Lionsgate Executive Vice President and Head of Worldwide Scripted Television Chris Selak. "She's an incredibly talented multi-hyphenate, and we look forward to working with her on premium, breakthrough original programming for our television slate."

"I'm thrilled to join Kevin, Sandra, Chris and the rest of the Lionsgate family through this new partnership," said Bicks. "I've always enjoyed Lionsgate's cutting-edge programming. They're not afraid to support a creator's unique vision and I'm excited to add my voice to their chorus."

Bicks is the latest creative to join Lionsgate Television's roster of elite talent relationships that already includes Justin Simien (Dear White People), Yvette Lee Bowser (Black-ish), Eric and Kim Tannenbaum (Two and a Half Men), Courtney Kemp (Power), Paul Feig (The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale), Eugenio Derbez and Ben O'Dell (Overboard, Instructions Not Included), Nashville's Ed Zwick & Marshall Herskovitz, and Dexter's John Goldwyn, among others.

Bicks is represented by UTA and attorney Ken Richman at Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush, Kaller & Gellman.
