Colex Enterprises was a joint venture company between Columbia Pictures Television and LBS Communications, Inc., active from January 30, 1984 to January 1, 1988. The name of the joint venture is a portmanteau of the two companies' names (Columbia and Lexington, the latter coming from LBS' original name of Lexington Broadcast Services).[1]

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. Colex also distributed the syndicated sitcom series What's Happening Now!!, which was later distributed by LBS and Coca-Cola Telecommunications on its final season.
