“Tyler Perry TV” on the horizon?

By Andrea Pilar Nevil · August 12, 2011

Though, Lionsgate refuses to confirm the plans to create “Tyler Perry TV” they are in full support of the idea. Deadline.com reports Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer insists he “can’t comment” on the idea though he “strongly supports the idea of bringing Perry to exciting new platforms”. The ideas floating around have suggested an entire cable channel for purchase or one already in existence that would propel Tyler Perry and target the minority demographic. The New York Times says there is consideration in “rebranding” TV Guide, buying Gospel Broadcasting Network or working with Comcast to “beef up programming for minority audiences”.
