￼Wicked Cow Studios builds franchises. Its publishing-first model leverages its storytelling experience across media platforms and beyond. Wicked Cow, in tandem with world-class strategic production and sponsorship partners, including Time Inc., Jupiter Entertainment, and WebMD, among others, optimizes executions for every category to put entertaining and informative productions in front of audiences wherever they are. By adapting these stories across channels—live events, exhibitions, audio, education, TV, film, and digital—Wicked Cow builds them into franchises that generate powerful long-term revenue streams.
