Covert Affairs TV billboard...

Covert Affairs TV billboardSingle woman. Double life.

This sleek and sexy billboard starring Piper Perabo as a young CIA operative juggling her personal and undercover life in the new TV series, Covert Affairs, certainly stands out for its simplicity.

Of course having the espionage credentials of The Bourne Trilogy behind it can't help but attract viewers to try out the new spy show.

This new season TV billboard was photographed at the corner of Crescent Heights and Sunset Boulevard in L.A. on July 9, 2010.

TRIO DAY: Cats and Dogs 3D movie billboards...

Cats and Dogs 3D film billboard
I had a hard time choosing between these three billboards for the new Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore movie, so I thought I'd showcase them all on Daily Billboard's first ever TRIO DAY.
Cats and Dogs Kitty Galore billboard
What's not to like about flying spy cats and dogs (it's better than it raining cats and dogs), and these bright billboards are lots of fun, each with a witty strapline. They'll appeal to your inner child, even if you don't have your own children.

The purr-fessional spy billboard was photographed at Hollywood Boulevard and La Brea Avenue on July 9, the Real spies...only furrier creative along Sunset Boulevard on June 30 and finally the Bone-a-fied Hero version at La Brea and Melrose Avenue on July 14, 2010.

Warehouse 13 season two TV billboard...

warehouse 13 season 2 billboardMystery loves company.

This is a great, simple creative for the second season of Warehouse 13, which cleverly evokes those old memories of The X-Files iconic mystery solving duo, Mulder and Scully, plus a bit of Indiana Jones with those rows of crates with mysterious contents.

This series however has a lighter tone than its cult classic TV predecessor, and stars Eddie McClintock and Joanne Kelly as U.S. Secret Service agents 'Pete Lattimer' and 'Myka Bering'.

This Syfy billboard was photographed on July 9, 2010 at the corner of Crescent Heights and Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood.

DUO DAY: Eat Pray Love movie billboards...

Eat Pray Love Pizza billboard
'I'm having a relationship with my Pizza'.

Truer words have never been spoken. What a great way to grab your attention, than a favourite comfort food. These fun and engaging billboards for Julia Roberts new film, Eat Pray Love, certainly caught Daily Billboard's eye.

There's also a 'You don't need a Man, you need a Champion' version and this 'Let yourself Go' mantra, which Daily Billboard thinks is the perfect excuse to have another cocktail.

These movie billboards were photographed along Sunset Boulevard on July 27 and above the Santa Palm Car Wash on Santa Monica Boulevard in L.A. on July 24, 2010.

Let's hope the movie is as lighthearted and liberating as these billboards.

Flipped movie billboard...

Flipped movie billboardThis sweet and wistful billboard for the forthcoming movie Flipped, certainly has a romantic quality to it.

Based on the novel by Wendelin Van Draanen, the film follows the lives of two children from grade school to junior high who start to have feelings for each other even though they are total opposites.

This dreamy billboard was snapped along La Brea Avenue in L.A. on July 13, 2010.

You never forget your first love.

The Big C TV billboard...

The Big C TV billboard
Time to grab life by the balls.

Laura Linney made the ideal 'Mary Ann Singleton' in the television adaptation of Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City, so it's great to see her returning to TV after big screen success to star in Showtime's The Big C.

It's nice to see this billboard is bright and life affirming, hopefully reflecting the upbeat nature of the show.

Faced with the life altering news that she has been diagnosed with cancer, her reserved schoolteacher character decides to make a few changes and live life to the fullest.

This colourful TV billboard was photographed on July 24, 2010 along Sunset Boulevard.

Dinner for Schmucks movie billboard...

Dinner for Schmucks movie billboard
If the name of the film doesn't catch your eye, Steve Carell's nerdy character certainly does as you drive by this movie billboard for Dinner for Schmucks.

This remake of the 1998 French film, The Dinner Game, will see Paul Rudd and Steve Carell reunite on screen after previous cinematic outings, The 40 Year Old Virgin and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.

You can also see some original props from Dinner for Schmucks on display at Hollywood Movie Costumes and Props.

This fun movie billboard was snapped along Westwood Boulevard on July 1, 2010.

Raunchy Calvin Klein Jeans X billboard...

Raunchy Calvin Klein Jeans X Billboard
Not to be outdone by their competitors like Armani Exchange, Calvin Klein's latest billboard for the Jeans X range along Sunset Boulevard ups the raunch quota a fair notch.

Model Lara Stone seems to be literally bursting out of her leather jacket, whilst there's also enough buff bare male flesh on show to satisfy the sexual preferences of all passing commuters and pedestrians.

Luckily it's all in the name of fashion and this black and white imagery, with a dash of red is certainly an attention grabber.

This raunchy Calvin Klein billboard was snapped on July 23, 2010.

Tron Legacy Garrett Hedlund movie billboard...

Tron Legacy Garrett Hedlund billboard
Disney continues to tease us with impactful billboards for its forthcoming Tron Legacy, even though the movie is still around six months away (although just in time for San Diego Comic-Con this weekend).

Daily Billboard has loved every single creative so far, from early glimpses of the new Lightcycles, to illuminated nighttime billboards. They've been eye-catching fan pleasers, but Daily Billboard also thinks they've done a great job of rekindling passerby interest in a franchise with is almost thirty years old.

This Disney movie billboard featuring rising star Garrett Hedlund was photographed yesterday on July 22, 2010, at Glendon Avenue along Santa Monica Boulevard in L.A.

Skyy Infusions Ginger Vodka billboard...

Skyy Infusions Ginger vodka billboard
Colourful, vibrant and indulgent. This billboard for Skyy Infusions Ginger Vodka is Daily Billboard's favourite alcohol advertisement at the moment.

It screams luxurious Hollywood glamour, which is funny really as Skyy Vodka is not the most premium vodka brand, not that you could tell from this sophisticated billboard.

Skyy Vodka is just one of the many brands at the moment fighting it out for supremacy amongst the skyline of L.A. in a veritable Vodka War of visibility and branding.

This billboard works wonderfully against that rich blue Californian sky and was photographed along Beverly Boulevard in L.A. on July 14, 2010.

James Franco Gucci male fragrance billboard...

Gucci male model fragrance billboard
James Franco looks pretty sexy dripping wet in this new male fragrance billboard for Gucci by Gucci Sport Pour Homme.

Apparently the enigmatic actor is the new face of the first male Gucci fragrance and his striking features really do catch your eye as you drive along below L.A.'s infamous Chateau Marmont hotel on Sunset Boulevard.

This fashionable billboard was snapped on July 9, 2010.

The Other Guys movie billboard...

The Other Guys movie  billboardIf like me you can't look at Will Ferrell without smiling (Elf is my favourite Christmas movie), you'll love this great billboard for his new movie with Mark Wahlberg, The Other Guys.

Doing their best mid-air action hero poses (they are New York City detectives after all), this new comedy looks like pure unadulterated fun, which is reflected in this gung-ho billboard.

This film billboard was photographed along Sunset Plaza in West Hollywood on July 14, 2010.

TV WEEK: Dexter season three billboard...

Dexter season 3 Rolling Stone cover billboardWe end another installment of TV WEEK here at Daily Billboard with a spectacular building billboard for season three of Dexter, the show about a secret serial killer.

For this season a series of promotional posters showed Michael C. Hall as 'Dexter Morgan' depicted on various mock front covers of famous magazines, like this Rolling Stone masthead style.

This version has a subtle touch of a razor blade necklace hinting at Dexter's dark secret and was photographed on the side of the Hyatt Hotel on Sunset Boulevard on September 18, 2008.

Come back tomorrow for another week of variety, with everything from movie and fashion billboards to eye-catching food and drink creatives.

TV WEEK: Torchwood Children of Earth billboard...

Torchwood Children of Earth TV billboardThe British invasion continues with this fantastic billboard for BBC sci-fi series Torchwood.

The third season of Torchwood deviated from its usual episodic formula and instead was a five night event called Children of Earth. They certainly tried to up the stakes and action quota and even ex-policewoman Gwen Cooper ominously posing with her two guns suggested this season was going to be different from what had gone before.

It was a great mini-series and now apparently Captain Jack Harkness (played by John Barrowman) and the Torchwood crew (or what's left of them) are heading stateside, along with creator Russell T. Davies, as U.S. cable channel Starz is developing ten new episodes of this Doctor Who spin-off for Summer 2011.

And for those not in the know, Torchwood is an anagram of Doctor Who, where Captain Jack first appeared.

This fantastic billboard was photographed at Santa Monica Boulevard and La Brea Avenue on July 20, 2009.

TV WEEK: Nurse Jackie season one billboard...

Nurse Jackie season 1 TV billboard
Life is full of little pricks.

Surely no one can resist the wry humour of this billboard, it certainly made me laugh out loud when I first saw it. What a great way to grab your attention for the inaugural season of Nurse Jackie, starring Edie Falco as the titular character.

This tongue-in-cheek billboard is almost perfect, with a fantastic colour scheme and great wit to stand out from the crowded billboard-filled L.A. skyline.

This colourful creative was snapped along Melrose Avenue on May 28, 2009 and you can also check out the equally funny second season Nurse Jackie billboard here at Daily Billboard.

UPDATED: This giant-sized billboard for the first season was snapped on the side of the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood on June 1, 2009.

TV WEEK: White Collar season two billboard...

White Collar season 2 TV billboard
Another new TV billboard today, this one for the second season of crime comedy-drama White Collar.

The show stars the handsome Matt Bomer as a con-man who agrees to help the FBI catch other 'white collar' criminals for a modicum of freedom.

This new billboard continues the effective black, white and blue colour scheme from the first season's promotional poster, combined with the handcuffed imagery to convey the crime element of the show.

These classy billboards were photographed along Sunset Boulevard on June 30, 2010.
White Collar season 2 billboard
UPDATED: Here's a special bonus billboard from the first season of White Collar snapped along L.A.'s Sunset Strip on October 28, 2009.

TV WEEK: The Prisoner remake billboard...

The Prisoner remake TV mini-series billboard
Obey. Resist.

This unconventional billboard for the 2009 remake mini-series of The Prisoner, featuring the enigmatic eyes of Ian McKellen and a giant sphere looming behind Jim Caviezel, really did stand out.

This perplexing remake of the original cult classic from the late 60's retains certain surreal elements in the billboard, like the 'Rover' security system (the giant white balloon) to keep 'Number Six' trapped in 'The Village', to whet our appetites.

This TV billboard was photographed along Highland and Fountain Avenue on October 28, 2009.

And the award for best strategic use of sunsets and palm trees goes to...

You've got to admit this billboard for new reality TV show, The Real L Word, is a real attention grabber. The 'L' obviously being lesbians and glamourous ones at that, living and loving in Los Angeles.

This Showtime billboard was photographed along Sunset Boulevard on June 30, 2010.

Today marks the start of another TV WEEK here at Daily Billboard, so expect a mix of new series, new seasons and old favourite television billboards on a daily basis.

To kick us off with the intriguing words 'Not every conspiracy is a theory', is new show Rubicon, which is itself a very compelling title.

Apparently the series will be about an intelligence analyst (played by James Badge Dale) in New York City who discovers his employers may actually be part of a secret society shaping world events on a grand scale.

This simple and well designed TV billboard was photographed along Sunset Boulevard on June 30, 2010.

Who is Salt movie billboards
Soon the mystery of who Salt is will be revealed, but at least this billboard for Angelina Jolie's new espionage thriller, shows more of her trademark sultry looks.

Mad Men season four TV billboard...

Mad Men season 4 billboard
You have to agree this billboard for the fourth season of Mad Men, featuring Jon Hamm as 'Don Draper', is very enigmatic.

It stands to reason that a television drama about the advertising industry would have a great creative campaign itself.

This simple and intriguing TV billboard was photographed on June 28, 2010 along La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles.

UPDATED: Here's another billboard for the captivating show snapped along Sunset Boulevard on August 17, 2010.

The Expendables movie billboard...

Expendables movie billboardJust how many action heroes can you fit on to a billboard? Apparently this many, on the movie billboard for The Expendables.

Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and the film even a cameo by 'The Governator' himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Daily Billboard guesses if you like action movies and lots of explosions, you're going to love this film out in August.

This billboard certainly stood out along the Sunset Strip in L.A. on June 30, 2010.

Nicholas Cage The Sorcerer's Apprentice movie billboard
Apparently it's the coolest job ever, but would you want Nicolas Cage teaching you how to be a Sorcerer?

From Percy Jackson and the Olympians to The Sorcerer's Apprentice, every big film studio seems desperate to find that next big franchise to replace the Harry Potter cash cow. Has Disney found the magical recipe in this new movie? Only time and the box office results will tell.

This spectacular billboard was photographed along the Sunset Strip in L.A. on June 30, 2010.
