Our ambition.

Christophe ThoralPresident

Our business activities and markets are going through profound changes, and worldwide demand for content in all forms is constantly growing. Whether linear terrestrial, cable or satellite television, VOD and SVOD services, OTT platforms, or B2B and B2C digital productions, the list of possibilities never ceases to expand, and our mission as creator of content is now more than ever full of promise.

A French leader in production, Lagardère Studios has embarked on a path of international growth that will allow us to reach new audiences, to set up alliances and joint strategies. These past few months, Lagardère Studios has gained a foothold in West Africa directly, and among Spanish-speaking audiences through its subsidiary Grupo Boomerang. We are just at the beginning of this expansion policy, with the aim of becoming a global leader in independent production.

On each of these continents, Lagardère Studios provides clients with a strong partnership able to accompany them and keep one step ahead of the changes in the audiovisual world, by focusing on new production models: international coproductions, localized productions, low-cost industrial production, and corporate and digital creations.

Lagardère Studios must, above all, draw fresh talent to offer innovative, significant work and formats by bringing together the best professionals in the field, from France and abroad, with a single goal in mind: to offer the very best in audiovisual production.
