Kevin
Beggs

Chairman

Lionsgate was one of the first studios to produce original content for AMC (“Mad Men”) and era-defining series for Showtime (“Weeds,” “Nurse Jackie”). The studio is also behind Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black” and OWN’s mega-church drama “Greenleaf.” In place for 19 years, Beggs oversees development and production of both scripted and non-scripted for broadcast, cable and digital platforms. Since Lionsgate’s acquisition of Starz last year, the TV division has increasingly focused on using the premium-cable channel and direct-to-consumer platform as a launchpad for shows such as the New York City–set “Sweetbitter” and “Vida,” about Mexican-American sisters in East L.A. Both were picked up for a second season. Beggs started out as a producer on TV’s “Baywatch.”
