Lionsgate’s Pilgrim Media Group signs deal with 2,500 media outlets

Lionsgate’s Pilgrim Media Group has signed an exclusive unscripted deal with Sean Perry’s production company 2500 Media, the company announced Thursday.

As part of the agreement, 2500 Media, which focuses on unscripted series, documentaries and scripted projects, will immediately join Pilgrim Media Group’s development and production team. The deal also includes an initial scripted component with Lionsgate Television.

“As I looked for ways to strengthen my new company, 2500 Media, and deliver high-quality production at a reasonable cost, it was clear that working with Lionsgate and Pilgrim was the best and fastest way to achieve our goals,” said Perry a statement. “When you see what Kevin Beggs, Sandra Stern and their team have accomplished at Lionsgate Television and what my good friend Craig Piligian has built with Pilgrim, it was a no-brainer to fully commit to them.”

Perry, founder and CEO of 2500 Media, is best known for founding Endeavor’s unscripted division. Throughout his time at companies such as Original Productions, Eureka and WME, Perry has worked to expand the capabilities of alternative and reality television organizations.

The agreement builds on Lionsgate Television’s growing slate of scripted and unscripted series, which currently includes partnerships with BBC Studios, Paul Feig, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Point Gray Pictures, Katori Hall, Robert Greenblatt, Rashida Jones and Will McCormack, Eric and Kim include Tannenbaum, Carl Beverly and Sarah Timmerman, and Michael Colton and John Aboud.
