Lionsgate and New Regency have formed a multi-year production and distribution agreement for the worldwide television marketplace.

New Regency Chairman Arnon Milchan and Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer unveiled the alliance at the first day of NATPE in Miami.

The deal calls for Lionsgate Television to distribute New Regency’s new theatrical film releases and library on television and digital platforms around the world outside the U.S. and Canada following their pay TV debut — including “The Revenant,” “The Big Short,” “Birdman” and “Gone Girl.” The companies also said the alliance will enable the two studios to develop and co-produce premium scripted series for global audiences.

“We’re thrilled to join forces with Arnon and the New Regency team in a partnership designed to continue the mutual growth of our content businesses around the world,” said Feltheimer. “New Regency’s library of award-winning blockbusters is a tremendous addition to our international television pipeline, and our alliance also creates exciting opportunities to produce premium scripted content drawn from a tremendous pool of world-class intellectual property.”
