Lions Gate unveils new movie slate from digital content studio

Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. unveiled its first slate of feature films set for release under its Studio L brand, the new name for the company's digital content business.

Studio L develops content for millennial audiences via partnerships with various brands, platforms and "distinctive creative voices." The company has two movies set to release in May: "The Honor List" a coming-of-age drama that marks the debut release from media and technology company POPSUGAR, and "Most Likely to Murder," described as a home-for-the-holidays noir-comedy starring Adam Pally, Rachel Bloom and Vincent Kartheiser. "Most Likely to Murder" will release May 1 after a premiere at South by Southwest. "The Honor List" follows, with a release date of May 11.

Studio L also has a content partnership deal with new media network Brat and will distribute Brat's first full-length feature film, "Chicken Girls: The Movie," a film-scaled extension of the YouTube series "The Chicken Girls" set to release later this spring.

Other Studio L projects include a second "Blue Mountain State" film, based on a TV series about students at a Midwestern U.S. college; as well as series based on horror film "The Blair Witch Project" and comedy "Waiting," and film production partnerships with BuzzFeed and The Onion.
