Films' first quarter report (read here) included news that CineGroupe is doing the Blade animated show for MTV...
Lions Gate's CineGroupe animation partner generated library revenues of $0.4 million, while no new episodes were delivered in the quarter. The Company is still on track to deliver 67 half-hours of programming for fiscal 2004 from a variety of sources, including the provocative CG-driven series "Tripping the Rift," to be delivered to the Sci-Fi Channel in December, the Britney Spears live-action series for ABC Family in the fall, additional episodes of "What's with Andy?" and "Pig City," to be delivered to Teletoon, as well as the release of the animated feature film "Pinocchio 3000." In addition, CineGroupe is in development with Marvel Entertainment on the animated series "Blade" for MTV, based on the blockbuster film franchise.
