After working together on the successful release of Flood, Lionsgate UK and production company Power have formed a long-term, exclusive home entertainment distribution partnership.
Power, a TV production company that recently branched out into feature films, will release all its productions including mini-series, features and TV series, through Lionsgate UK.
Power's current slate includes XIII: The Conspiracy starring Val Kilmer, Pinocchio starring Bob Hoskins, the 13-part Crusoe, Day of the Triffids and Ice.
All products will be co-branded Power and Lionsgate to build consumer awareness of the Power brand in the UK, while still leveraging the Lionsgate brand.
Andrew Schreiber, senior VP, worldwide DVD/video sales and distribution for Power, said: 'Lionsgate has proven itself to be one of the strongest and most creative distributors in the business, and we're very excited to be expanding our relationship with them. Together we will be building the Home Entertainment sector of the Power brand with an extraordinary slate of productions over the coming year.'
Nicola Cartwright, managing director, Lionsgate Home Entertainment, added: 'The dynamic relationship formed between Lionsgate and Power during the release of Flood set a strong platform from which to create a long term entrepreneurial partnership. We are thrilled to incorporate Power's fantastic production slate into Lionsgate's growing portfolio. Coupled with growing franchise Weeds and the pending release of award winning Madmen, this fantastic flow of product will now see Lionsgate and Power productions seriously step forward in the TV genre.'
