As a natural extension of LMNO’s programming and production services, LMNO was created specifically for the digital arena. The first venture resulted in creating an authentic brand that transitioned seamlessly from the digital space to traditional television and consumer branding. The Golden Sisters, launched from a viral video and went on to be become an award winning series for Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network. Their year in review special was hosted by Tom Bergeron and had a featured guest appearance by Pharrell. Additionally the Golden Sisters were tapped as online influencers by Deutsch Inc and did a series of Volkswagen commercials that LMNO produced and directed.
Recently named to Realscreen’s Global 100 (2014) for best work in non-fiction film and television, LMNO continues to be recognized for the quality of its work both domestically and internationally.
