Through its CMedia production studio and original franchises, Claire’s is transforming into a brand lifestyle and force of culture with a series of entertainment content. This collaboration will expand on Claire’s existing global platform, which includes more than 2,750 stores, franchised locations worldwide, an original experience in the metaverse, more than 18 million loyalty members as well as an e-commerce platform, and leverage SPT – Kids’ content creation team, which develops and distributes kids programming in over 200 countries worldwide.

CMedia, Claire’s exclusive production arm which launched in 2021, is home to its original content.

In our ongoing dialogue with Gen Zalpha, they have told us they would love to see more content from us, and I am thrilled that we can partner with Sony Pictures Television to create this series to deepen our engagement and express the power of our brand in unique, new ways. We will partner to not only produce highly original programming and IP, but also amplify the brand’s global resonance and expand our consumer interaction through content that is socially immersive and shoppable entertainment.”
