  • Entertainment Weekly Fandom

    As the leading consumer media brand for entertainment fans, Entertainment Weekly (EW) partnered with Insight Strategy Group and Fizziology to develop industry-leading authority on the fan experience. Using TV fandom as a microcosm for fandom at large, EW conducted a multi-phase research study to better understand how fandom is born, identify the underlying psychological drivers and need states that spark fandom, and explain how it grows and thrives.  The EW Fandom study provides a framework for how content brands and advertisers can create, target, reach and engage fan audiences.​
