Camera & Lights LP is a television company that broadcasts multiple TV cable channels broadcasted for the El Kadsre (and formerly Foopiia and Piramca) regions. It is similar to Ole Communications in Latin America (a joint between Disney-ABC Television Group, Sony Pictures Television, NBCUniversal, Turner Broadcasting System (HBO), and formerly Omnivisión).

In 2017, the Foopiian and Piramcan operations were bought out and most of the channels were closed down (or rebranded as TPEN (and their affiliates') channels), due to the acquisitions and the arrival of the B2 service in Piramca and Foopiia.

Camera & Lights LP

In 2015, Discovery Communications and FTN joined the team and changed the company's name to Camera & Lights LP (Limited Partnership). The team gained a recent member in 2017 with TGP Media-Networks.

SBS Broadcasting B.V. launched its second channel in El Kadsre, SBS El Kadsre, which is a combination of SBS 6, SBS 9 and Net 5. 

In May 2017, due to multiple companies pulled out they're partnerships of C&L LP in El Kadsre, QWE Holdings (owners of FTN Inc. and TGP Media-Networks) acquired ownership of Foopiia, which became Foopiian Cable Group, a new place for Foopiian versions of Television channels such as Disney Channel Foopiia, it was also due to a merge between FTN Inc. and TGP Media-Networks which cause a effect on and CLC International LP making FTN, and TGP Media-Networks taking over stakes of other companies which will complete in June 2017, with Camera & Lights LP's bankruptcy, they had interest to increase ownership of the company with Suius M&E Networks joining the partnership.

That month, Camera & Lights LP announced that it was in danger, was nearing bankruptcy and went public in NASDAQ El Kadsre. Later on, most (95%) of the television show formats (from all the member companies of past and present), that were adapted, premiered on a temporary channel Glow (a game show block-ish), only to get cancelled immediately, due to Camera & Lights LP's financial problems.

The rest of the adaptations' pilots were sold to be broadcasted in B2 exclusively. 

Suius M&E Networks and ABS-CBN has expressed interest in joining the partnership, while Viacom, CBS Corporation and 21st Century Fox have expressed interest in merging their Viacom/CBS Networks and Fox Networks El Kadsre arms (both based in El Kadsre) into .

In May 2017, the former channels were finally discontinued after Polar Night Inc and Village Lava (which merged to Metropolitan Media Group) acquired the Piramcan operations. This was due to B2's arrival to Piramca, the service being operated locally by MalaWorks Company, unlike other localized versions which are operated by Laserium Entertainment themselves.
