Collins Avenue (a Content Media Corp company)*
With Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance owning the dance competition genre, Collins Avenue took a different approach to hitting the dance floor, creating a franchise focusing on the moms behind precocious dancers with the docuseries Dance Moms for Lifetime. Since then, the series has spawned a second season, a Miami-based version and a figure skating iteration (Ice Moms), all for Lifetime.
“Last year we sold two shows from sizzle reels straight to series,” says Collins head Jeff Collins. “Dance Moms became an instant hit and changed the profile of our company in a meaningful way. Although we’re not really a little ‘boutique’ shop anymore, we still operate like one because we’re not over-burdened by layers of corporate red tape. At the end of the day, it’s my name on the door and my business partners trust me to make my own decisions.” KA
