Melissa McCarthy, Julia Roberts Peddle On HSN In New Films

April 7, 2016

We’ve done many blogs about HSN’s marketing partnerships with movie studios for the launch of new films, where the network will sell merchandise related to a new release. Well, HSN has stepped up that effort.

The Wall Street Journal did a story on Wednesday headlined “HSN Lands Supporting Role in Films” that explains how Julia Roberts and Melissa McCarthy will be playing characters who sell their products on the home shopping network.

This will be happening in Roberts’ movie “Mother’s Day,” which is out April 29, and McCarthy’s “The Boss,” which is out tomorrow. As we all know, McCarthy in real life sells a clothing line on HSN.

The article explains that HSN will be airing clips of the films and behind-the-scenes stuff, and will be creating “themed merchandise” tied to the movies.

Here’s HSN’s press release:

HSN to Premiere Melissa McCarthy’s First Fashion Collection “Melissa McCarthy Seven7” on August 13

McCarthy to Make Her HSN Debut as Part of The Fashion Edit, HSN’s Fall Fashion Series

HSN is the Exclusive National Retailer Carrying Missy Sizes

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Aug. 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Innovative live content retailer HSN announced today that Melissa McCarthy will debut her first-ever fashion line “Melissa McCarthy Seven7” during a special live appearance on August 13th from 1-3 pm and 9-11 pm, during HSN’s popular fashion program, ‘The List with Colleen Lopez’.

The collection is available for purchase today during a special sneak preview on HSN.com. As part of the retailer’s democratic sizing initiative, HSN will carry both plus and missy sizes of the line and will be the only national retailer carrying missy sizes, aside from McCarthy’s own website that launches in late August.

Melissa’s first fashion line combines her enthusiasm for fashion with her understanding of fit and style at every size, to create a comprehensive collection that balances style with thoughtful fit features. Melissa, who went to school for design before getting into acting, is fulfilling her dream with the launch of Seven7.

The line, which was carefully supervised by Melissa, from the original sketches to the design of each print, consists of 26 styles in the August Collection. With an assortment of denim, sweaters, tees, woven blouses and ponte bottoms, the line is brought together with vibrant colors, unique prints and modern silhouettes. All denim in the collection features special technology that provides four key fit features: a slimming panel; back lifting darts; forward seam details; and a contoured waistband.

“HSN is thrilled to be the launch partner for Melissa’s debut into the world of fashion,” said Bill Brand, President of HSN. “When we first met Melissa, we were immediately impressed with her passion for design and the clear point of view she had for her line. She will create a unique and engaging shopping experience that our customers are going to love.”
