As Mashable notes:
“Entertainment is a logical next step for Conde Nast as the company looks to diversify its holdings beyond the print business. (Its licensed restaurant business is a prime example.) Besides Talley’s foray into reality TV, the company cooperated with the production of a documentary about Vogue titled The September Issue, which brought in more than $6 million in global box office sales in 2009.”
