Colex Enterprises was an American television distribution company.


Colex was formed in 1984 as a joint venture between Columbia Pictures Television and LBS Communications to distribute classic Screen Gems shows, as well as distribute new syndicated CPT/LBS co-productions like What's Happening Now!! and The New Gidget.

Colex was dissolved in 1988, but a number of the Screen Gems shows previously distributed by Colex continued to be jointly distributed by CPT and LBS for a few more years afterward, while LBS became the sole distributor for The Monkees until 1990, when all co-distributed shows returned to sole distribution by CPT.

Sony Pictures Television now handles distribution of the Screen Gems catalogue.
