Beggs

Chairman

Under Beggs’ leadership, Lionsgate’s five newest freshmen series — HBO Max’s “Love Life,” NBC’s “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist,” Apple TV Plus’ “Mythic Quest” and Starz’s “P-Valley” and “Hightown” — all received season 2 renewals, as the studio launched several shows and placed more projects than ever at networks. Beggs, who is a 22-year vet of Lionsgate TV, has helped solidify the studio’s place as a supplier of premium scripted shows to broadcast and cable networks, plus streamers. Shepherding series like AMC’s “Mad Men,” Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black” and Showtime’s “Weeds” and “Nurse Jackie” remain some of Beggs’ top accomplishments, and they remain solid revenue generators via licensing to streamers.
