Tyler Perry Getting His Own Network?

Oprah better watch out!

Lionsgate is on such a roll with the Tyler Perry franchise they want to give our savior his own television network.

Lionsgate is looking to follow Oprah Winfrey and launch a new cable TV network anchored by Tyler Perry.

“Tyler is one of those rare resources that one could launch a channel with. We have a lot of options if we choose to go down that path,” Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer told financial analysts Wednesday after posting a surprise first quarter profit on Tuesday.

The Lionsgate topper refused to be drawn on details following a report Tuesday in the New York Times about a planned cable TV channel Tyler TV.

But Feltheimer praised Perry as a “rare piece of talent that can bring an audience anywhere.”
On how a Tyler Perry cable venture might be rolled out, he said Lionsgate could buy and rebrand a not-fully distributed channel, or pursue a “nesting strategy” with a channel it already has, including TV Guide.
