(September 12, 2000 – Burbank, CA) - LMNO Productions has renewed its first-look drama production agreement with Warner Bros. Television, it was announced today by Peter Roth, President, Warner Bros. Television, and Eric Schotz, President & CEO of LMNO Productions. Under the terms of the agreement, LMNO Productions will bring ideas for drama series and made-for-TV movies to Warner Bros. Television first. “Eric and his team at LMNO have consistently proven themselves to be amongst the most innovative and unique producers in television,” said Roth. “We look forward to our continued relationship with them.” "Renewing our partnership with Warner Bros. allows us to combine LMNO's creativity and extensive research database with the best in the business, thereby helping us cross-over into producing drama series and long-form programming," said the Emmy Award-winning Schotz. As one of the most prolific independent producers of reality television, LMNO Productions has a vast library of truly dramatic, character-driven stories to which it owns the rights. In the past year, Warner Bros. and LMNO have worked together to combine the best of their resources -- LMNO’s immense collection of stories and ideas with Warner Bros' extensive pool of writing talent -- to develop different, distinctive non-traditional dramas. LMNO Productions' current slate of programs include “Boot Camp,” “Krypton Factor” and “Since You’ve Been Gone,” all British formats acquired from Granada Media to be broadcast on FOX. LMNO Cable Group is producing “Behind Closed Doors with Joan Lunden,” which will premiere on A&E in the fall; “Mall Confessions,” a series for MTV; as well as more than 50 hours of programming for The Learning Channel, Travel Channel and Discovery Health. Other LMNO programs currently being broadcast include the CBS series “Kids Say The Darndest Things” and FOX’s “Guinness World Records: Primetime.” The deal was brokered by Greg Lipstone, Sr. Vice President, William Morris Agency, who represents LMNO Productions.
