Founded in 1994, Lacey Entertainment is a recognized leader in worldwide entertainment content creation, production and distribution, specializing in innovative and creative approaches in the packaging, financing, production and audio visual exploitation of content in the U.S. and around the world.
Lacey has engineered some of the most successful broadcast launches over the past 3 decades which provided tremendous exposure that served to help propel merchandise licensing revenues into the billions of dollars for rights holders. Lacey develops and executes a marketing strategy for all content that seeks to exploit rights for all forms of audio visual exposure. With a keen eye for compelling content that will attract strong and loyal viewing audiences, Lacey astutely markets each and every program on a market by market basis, always seeking to generate maximum exposure and revenues and establish whenever practicable program franchises that work across multiple territories over multiple years.
Unlike many independent distributors, almost all of Lacey’s content has been launched as original, first run programming, i.e. without benefit of previous exposure of movie box office, book sales or TV series. Such an effort requires a command of the content, an appreciation for story telling, savvy marketing and steady focus on execution timed to create and meet market opportunities.
Frequently, distribution of children’s content requires a collaborative effort with numerous rights holders, including creators, producers, toy and video game companies, publishers, licensing partners and many others. Over the years and with numerous clients including some of the biggest multi-national life style and entertainment companies worldwide, Lacey has consistently demonstrated the necessary skills and an approach required by the highly competitive nature of entertainment content distribution.
