Actor-comedian Bernie Mac and producer Steven Greener have formed production company MacMan Entertainment and have signed a two-year, first-look deal with Lionsgate says The Hollywood Reporter.

The deal, which involves film projects, has an option for a third year and marks the first time Lionsgate has partnered with an actor's shingle. The first project to be developed under the new deal will be a concert film starring Mac to be produced by Mac and Greener.

The deal also includes the making of a series of Dean Martin-style celebrity roasts that will premiere on DVD. A minimum of four will be produced, and Mac will serve as the host.
