Starz provides Lionsgate with an important opportunity to work its creative magic on a proprietary distribution channel, hoping to replicate its success for Netflix (Orange is the New Black) and AMC (Mad Men).The current intent is to debut a new 12-13 episode series each month, creating a steady flow of new content designed to entice new subscribers and maintain existing ones with several new episodes introduced each week as the series overlap counting the debut series and those from the prior two months, with all prior episodes stacked on VOD. Spending per series and episode can vary based on the target of the series in terms of attracting and retaining subscribers.””
