Lionsgate signs TV deal with Two and a Half Men’s Tannenbaums

Lionsgate has made a multiyear television deal with Two and a Half Men (pictured) producers Eric and Kim Tannenbaum.

The Tannebaums will create scripted programming for the studio through their Tannenbaum Company production banner.

The duo’s production outfit has been based at CBS Television Studios for the past eight years, where they produced Two and a Half Men, The Odd Couple reboot and Young & Hungry.

Their most recent series The Last O.G. from Oscar winning creator Jordan Peele and John Carcieri premiered with record ratings at TBS.

Eric Tannenbaum has been credited for the emergence of US hits such as Mad About You and Dawmson’s Creek, while Kim Tannenbaum developed The Ellen Show and The $treet.

“We’re delighted to partner with Eric and Kim, two of the most gifted and prolific television producers in the industry,” said Lionsgate Television Group chairman Kevin Beggs. “They have shepherded a roster of iconic series and we look forward to working together.”

“We’re thrilled to join Kevin, Sandra, Chris and the rest of the Lionsgate team,” said the Tannenbaums.

“Their television business is perfectly aligned with our own approach to creating great programming in an entrepreneurial and talent-friendly environment, and we can hardly wait to contribute to one of the most exciting slates in the industry today.”
