Lionsgate Television is the television division of Canadian film company Lionsgate.


The company was founded in 1997 with the establishment of Lions Gate Films. Around 1998, the company acquired documentary/reality television company Termite Art Productions, which was reacquired by Erik Nelson in 2004, renaming it Creative Differences.

On July 12, 2006, Lions Gate Entertainment had expanded into television syndication when the company acquired Debmar-Mercury. Before the acquisition, Debmar-Mercury syndicated Lionsgate's film library. 20th Television handles ad-sales to shows distributed by Debmar-Mercury, with the exception of Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns, which is handled by Disney-ABC Domestic Television and Turner Television.

On March 13, 2012, Lionsgate Television formed a joint venture with Thunderbird Films, which was founded by Lionsgate founder and chairman Frank Guistra. The new venture became known as Sea to Sky Entertainment.
