Hearst Takes On Condé!

Comments | | Print

(NEW YORK) Fashion insiders have been tittering over The September Issue, and not only for all the usual reasons. Turns out that several Hearst insiders have boasted that the documentary, which casts a cold stare on Condé Nast flagship title Vogue, was co-produced by Actual Reality Pictures as well as A&E IndieFilms, which is owned by the Hearst Corporation. The documentary production arm of A&E Networks, A&E IndieFilms has released such films as American Teen, Murderball, and Jesus Camp. A&E Networks, in turn, fits alongside ESPN, Lifetime, King Features cartoon distributors and more under the vast umbrella of Hearst Entertainment and Syndication, an operating group of the Hearst Corporation. Given the scope of the corporation's interest, it's unlikely that Cathie Black gave the project any sort of greenlight. But still--do we sense some synergy?
