‘Tough Trade’ Selected as First Epix Pilot

Feb 10, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Lionsgate has gotten the green light to produce a pilot for the first original show commissioned for Epix, the new cable service being launched by Viacom, Lionsgate and two other studios.
The new show, “Tough Trade,” is about a Nashville music dynasty whose bad behavior has left them on the verge of bankruptcy.
The series is being executive produced by Jenji Kohan, creator of “Weeds,” the big hit for Showtime, which is also produced by Lionsgate.
Epix was formed after Showtime tried to lower the fees it pays for movies from the three movie studios.
“Tough Trade” was created by Chris Offutt, who recently served as executive story editor for HBO’s “True Blood” and is currently a co-producer for “Weeds.” He will be a co-executive producer of “Tough Trade.”
“We are thrilled to be moving forward with the pilot episode of what is expected to be Epix’s first original series,” said Mark Greenberg, president of Studio 3 Networks.”
