How's this for some good news: There is a new buyer in town.
Shortly after Lionsgate, the indie studio behind the huge horror franchise Saw and TV series Mad Men, Weeds and Crash, acquired TV Guide Network for $255 million in March, the network made a run for the off-network rights to HBO's Entourage. Spike TV ultimately won out,
but the cash bid that TV Guide made for the Hollywood-set comedy was
just the beginning of the new sorts of swings the network is expected
to take under the studio’s ownership.
