It also operates six digital cable and satellite channels which broadcast a mix of original program content and syndicated programs that the company distributes for broadcast television through its Entertainment Studios Networks subsidiary. It produces and distributes films through it Freestyle Releasing film studio subsidiary and also own The Grio which provides news to African-Americans.


The company is the largest independently operated syndication producer/distributor for broadcast television as the company produces and distributes 29 syndicated television series, which largely consist of court shows scripted from actual testimony, and interview programs; the company also ventured into scripted programming in 2012, with the launch of the sitcoms Mr. Box Office and The First Family.
