Indie production company Killer Films--headed by lesbian Christine Vachon--is partnering with Lionsgate Entertainment to take a stab at the television industry, reports Variety.

Known for pictures Far From Heaven, Boys Don't Cry, and The Notorious Betty Page, Killer Films teamed with HBO in 2005 on the television special Mrs. Harris. The movie earned 12 Emmy nominations, including Best TV Movie.

The new partnership with Lionsgate will allow Killer Films to develop and produce programming for both broadcast and cable television.

"Lionsgate has had tremendous success growing a brand in the last few years and has been at the forefront of new talent in television," Vachon tells Variety.

"Killer Films is known for producing challenging and often controversial material with great success," Kevin Beggs, a Lionsgate representative, explains of the decision to Variety. "Their artistic sensibility and highly entrepreneurial style are a perfect fit for Lionsgate."

Lionsgate currently produces shows The Dresden Files, Whiteboyz in the Hood, The Dead Zone, and the Emmy award-nominated Weeds. (The Advocate)
