COMPANY OVERVIEW & BACKGROUND:
Content Reigns Entertainment began its operations as LJC in 1993 as a Midwest producer of locally originated television programming. Pidge Jobst did much of the creative for the local FOX WTTE-28 Kids Club affiliate, which later became the template for the National FOX Kids Clubs in markets across the U.S.
CRE enjoyed immediate success. Early on, the company was awarded commissioned contracts for the development of two weekly television series programs for Production Partners, Inc., namely "Ohio Golf" and "Columbus Cooks". In addition, the company produced and developed a third in-house, 52 episodes, children’s live-action educational program, "Crystal Palace."
These programs embodied all phases of development, including concept development and packaging, distribution, site management, pre-production, editing and post-production, major sponsor sales and TV avails, along with product placement and general merchandising.
The weekly children’s television series aired for three years and was produced before a live-studio audience. It was the first locally-originated children’s television program to be produced in over 22 years of Columbus' history. The company also produced "Crystal Palace's Tribute To Luci's Toyshop, "THE MOVIE." in November 1994. Joined by Wendy’s International, CRE distributed the movie into area AMC Theatres. CRE utilized the movie as a community outreach event to fuel the introduction of Columbus' next locally-produced children’s show. Wendy's then parented the weekly series by becoming the Official National & Presenting Sponsor. Prior to Wendy’s involvement, there was unkindled interest in local children’s programming among Columbus station affiliates. The program contributed greatly to Wendy’s interest in children’s charities and Founder, Dave Thomas’ personal desire to enhance the lives of children. Being adopted himself, a percentage of the business earnings went to both children and adoption efforts.
Since moving its operations to LA in 2010, the studio is embarked on providing viewers new and original, edgy animation, drama series, reality and docu-drama series, game and competition series, and more.
