Auburn Hills-based Palace Sports & Entertainment has set a deadline of the third week of January for a Hollywood producer to arrange financing to buy the Tampa Bay Lightning of the National Hockey League.
Oren Koules, the Los Angeles-based producer of the CBS comedy “Two and A Half Men” and the “Saw” horror films, has emerged as the front man for what’s estimated to be a $206 million bid for the team operated by Palace Sports. According to published reports, he’s being joined by movie producer Mark Burg and California financier Russell Belinsky in the effort.
If Koules’ group arranges the financing, the deal should be done in February, said Tom Wilson, president of Palace Sports.
