Epix Entertainment

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Epix (a premium cable network co-founded by Lionsgate, Paramount and MGM in 2009) launched their own television production arm in Fall 2016. Their series were co-produced by either Paramount Television, MGM Television and/or Lionsgate Television. In January 2023, Epix was rebranded by MGM Television (who bought Lionsgate and Paramount's stakes in 2017) to MGM+.
