Through our connections built over years in the entertainment industry, we are happy to announce the launch of MiMO Studios. Our CEO, Cyma Zarghami, former President of Nickelodeon, discusses our philosophy and current projects. She shares details surrounding our main project, a live-action adaptation of the book The Kid Who Only Hit Homers written by Matt Christopher in 1972.
At MiMO Studios, our goal is to give kids aged 11 and younger content filled with relatable characters and emotional experiences. Beyond our adaptation of The Kid Who Only Hit Homers, we are happy to announce we have three additional projects with more in the pipeline.
While we started our first project as a live-action production, we plan on producing animated features and TV-length movies to tell compelling stories for children. We believe the advent of streaming television opens up more production opportunities to give kids programming with lovable characters and strong family values.
Our commitment to storytelling and Cyma’s decades of entertainment experience give us a unique position in the current broadcasting landscape. We understand that many families benefit from instant streaming content as more platforms offer streaming services. We’re in a position to partner with many distribution platforms as we take on and complete our projects.
“MiMO will challenge the typical content format and create franchise-potential properties that will engage kids and their families in deeper and more relevant ways.
MiMO Studio will be at the forefront of building a new franchise model for kids’ content in what is seeming more and more like a post-broadcast world. It has been very rewarding to personally select IP that will come to life in keeping with my vision to super serve kids 11 and under in a new media landscape, one that is being primarily designed for the adult audience.”
We can’t wait to share these stories with you and your families.
