CSS Entertainment curates and shares video stories that bring out the best of the human spirit.
We create and distribute our video content under the Chicken Soup for the Soul brand. Since our inception in January 2015, our business has grown rapidly and is profitable. We are aggressively growing our business through a combination of organic growth, licensing and distribution arrangements, acquisitions, and strategic relationships. In October 2015, we premiered our first show, Chicken Soup for the Soul’s Hidden Heroes on CBS. In 2016, we had two shows on the air, Hidden Heroes and Project Dad, a Chicken Soup for the Soul Original, which aired on Discovery’s TLC network.
In September 2016, we entered into an exclusive distribution agreement (“A Plus Distribution Agreement”) with A Sharp Inc. d/b/a A Plus (“A Plus”), a digital media company that is majority owned by an affiliate of CSS, and which specializes in positive journalism and social change. Our agreement with A Plus significantly expands our ability to share our content by providing us access to A Plus’ celebrity influencers, including A Plus’ founder and chairman, AshtonKutcher. These celebrity influencers have more than 480 million followerscombined.
We are a Delaware corporation formed on May 4, 2016. CSS Productions LLC (“CSS Productions”), our predecessor and immediate parent company, was formed in December 2014 by Chicken Soup for the Soul, LLC (“CSS”), a publishing and consumer products company, and initiated operations in January 2015. We were formed to create a discrete entity focused on video content opportunities using the Chicken Soup for the Soul brand. The Chicken Soup for the Soul brand is owned and licensed to us by CSS. Chicken Soup for the Soul Holdings, LLC (“CSS Holdings”), is the parent company of CSS and our ultimate parent company. Our business address is 132 E.
