Colex Enterprises

Colex Enterprises was a joint venture company between Columbia Pictures Television and LBS Communications, Inc., active from 1984 to 1988. The joint venture's name was a combination of the two companies' names (Columbia and Lexington, the latter coming from LBS' original name of Lexington Broadcast Services).

The company was responsible for distributing the Screen Gems television output, as well as many of the post-1948 Bob Hope theatrical output, with the exception of Hanna-Barbera produced programs (excluding Jeannie and Partridge Family 2200 A.D.), which were syndicated by Worldvision Enterprises and later by Turner Broadcasting. Colex also distributed the syndicated sitcom series What's Happening Now!!, which was later distributed by LBS. On TV Land reruns of the show nowadays, LBS' logo and Sony Pictures Television are placed where the Colex logo used to be originally.

LBS distributed The Monkees until 1993 and was turned over to Columbia Pictures Television Distribution.
