“Matt is a powerhouse producer who knows what it takes to create reality hits with worldwide appeal,” said Lionsgate Television Group chairman Kevin Beggs, announcing the news. “Building our brand in this arena continues to be a priority for Lionsgate and we’re delighted to be in business with him.”
