Emmy-winning producer Caryn Mandabach has signed a two-year overall first-look deal with Lions Gate Television to develop comedy programming for the company.

The announcement was made Tuesday by Lions Gate’s Kevin Beggs, president of programming and production.

Ms. Mandabach was a longtime producer and partner in the Carsey-Werner-Mandabach Co. before she launched Caryn Mandabach Productions in April 2005.

The deal comes on the heels of Showtime’s launch of “Weeds,” Lions Gate Television’s first comedy series.
