Warners TV, LMNO extend prod’n deal

Company to expand beyond reality skeins

Warner Bros. Television and LMNO Prods. have extended their first-look drama series and telepic production deal.

Pact is part of LMNO’s efforts to expand its business beyond its bread-and-butter reality skeins and specials.

“Eric and his team at LMNO have consistently proven themselves to be among the most innovative and unique producers in television,” said WBTV topper Peter Roth. “We look forward to our continued relationship with them.”

LMNO and WBTV are currently shopping at least two scripted projects to various webs, though neither company would discuss details. Idea behind the pact is to match LMNO’s large library of compelling nonfiction stories with WBTV’s army of writers and producers.

“Renewing our partnership with Warner Bros. allows us to combine LMNO’s creativity and extensive research database with the best in the business, thereby helping us cross over into producing drama series and longform programming,” said Eric Schotz, prexy and CEO of LMNO.

LMNO produces numerous reality skeins for both network and cable outlets, including the upcoming “Krypton Factor” for Fox, “Behind Closed Doors With Joan Lunden” for A&E and “Mall Confessions” for MTV.

Deal was brokered by WMA.
