Keith Eisner has signed a multiyear overall television agreement with Lionsgate to develop and produce scripted programming, it was announced today by Lionsgate Television Group chairman Kevin Beggs.
“Keith brings extraordinary talent and a wealth of experience to Lionsgate having worked on several of television’s most acclaimed series,” said Beggs. “We’re excited to welcome him and look forward to a very rewarding creative partnership.”
The Emmy-nominated writer-producer, whose credits include “The Good Wife,” “Law & Order” and “Gilmore Girls,” will develop future projects for Lionsgate under the deal. He will also serve as executive producer on the studio’s Nick Nolte-starring Epix series “Graves,” alongside executive producer-showrunner Joshua Michael Stern and executive producers Greg Shapiro and Eric Weinberg.
“I am thrilled to be signing on with Lionsgate,” said Eisner. “Kevin and his team are the smartest, most creative and most entrepreneurial studio executives in the business, and I am excited to see what we can accomplish together.”
Eisner is repped by WME and the Shuman Company.
