The entertainment industry has long been dominated by the powerhouses of Hollywood film studios like Disney, Paramount, Sony, and Universal, and new heavyweights like Netflix and Amazon have taken the industry by storm. These juggernauts typically decide what films drive fans to theaters and what content they’ll stream at home. But what if the power to decide what movies and TV series we want to see was taken out of Wall Street and put into your hands?
What if we could influence Hollywood by financing, producing and developing original content from an entertainment company owned by fans? That is exactly what Legion M, the first Fan-Owned entertainment company, is doing as it strives to unite 1 million fans as Fan-Investors and build one of the most powerful entertainment companies in the world.
We sit down with Legion M co-founders Paul Scanlan and Jeff Annison to discuss the company’s upward trajectory since its founding in 2016, where the organization is heading, and how existing and new investors are already influencing how entertainment is made in Hollywood and beyond!
