Against the Wall TV billboard...

Against The Wall TV billboard
Rachael Carpani stars as 'Abby Kowalski' in a new crime drama about a young Chicago police detective who joins the Internal Affairs division which causes friction with her own family of cops.

This billboard for Against the Wall does a good job of showing that her police officer brothers and father are not happy with her decision and the highlighted red I and A in the show's title is a subtle design touch.

This Lifetime TV billboard was snapped along Sunset Boulevard at Crescent Heights Boulevard on July 23, 2011.

Summer Santa Pepsi billboard by day and night...

Pepsi Summer Santa billboard
It's not often that you see Santa Claus outside of Christmas, so it's fun to see him enjoying a Summer beach getaway before he gets busy for the Holidays.

This jolly campaign is a totally different take aimed at convincing the thirsty public that their cola is the best, compared to Coca-Cola's recent Enjoy Summer billboards.

Pepsi's Santa billboard was snapped at night at the Hollywood & Highland Center in L.A. on July 15 and in daytime on July 19, 2011.

NTSF:SD:SUV Adult Swim TV billboard...

NTSF:SD:SUV Adult Swim billboard
Oh Adult Swim you've done it yet again with your latest billboard.

From simple origins as a parody commercial featured on the channel's Childrens Hospital comedy, to its own spin-off show, NTSF:SD:SUV.
Bang Bang You're Dead billboard
As you can see from the title, the show parodies the never-ending glut of crime procedural shows on television and the billboard even echoes the stylistic look of many of the series opening sequences.
NTSF:SD:SUV TV show billboard
This very clever billboard was snapped along Sunset Boulevard near L.A.'s infamous Chateau Marmont Hotel on July 17, 2011.

The Change-Up movie billboards...

Change Up movie billboard
Daily Billboard always likes it when comedies make an effort with their movie billboards and don't fall foul of the ubiquitous funny headshot creative.
Change-Up movie billboard
Case in point, The Change-Up, starring this Summer's Green Lantern, Ryan Reynolds, and Horrible Bosses star Jason Bateman, in the latest take on the body switch comedy.
Change Up movie billboard
The zingy orange and blue colour combination on these billboards really pops from a distance and it's nice that the different formats have slight variations in poses to keep things interesting, and a little bit cheeky too.

Damages season four TV billboard...

Damages season 4 TV billboard
Glenn Close and Rose Byrne are back for a fourth season of Damages, joined by John Goodman for another intriguing billboard for the legal drama.

However the overall effect of the billboard is slightly spoiled by the 'Only on DirecTV' copy which is so prominent (but that's obviously the price of being picked up and renewed for another two seasons by the network, after previously being aired on FX).

This TV billboard was snapped along Sunset Boulevard on July 17, 2011 and if you're a fan of the show, be sure to also check out Damages season three billboard.

Storage Wars season two TV billboard...

Storage Wars season 2 billboard
If there's one way to grab people's attention it's to throw money around and this billboard for the second season of Storage Wars does just that with this fun creative. The treasure hunters looks like they would fit right in to Las Vegas, rather than the less glamourous surroundings of repossessed storage units scouring for forgotten valuables to auction off.

This television billboard was snapped along Sunset Boulevard in A&E's regular location on July 5, 2011.

Be sure to also check out the first season billboard for Storage Wars here at Daily Billboard.

BONUS DAY: Crazy Stupid Love movie billboards...

Crazy Stupid Love billboard
Daily Billboard is really liking this series of billboards for the latest romantic comedy to hit the big screen.
Steve Carell Crazy Stupid Love movie billboard
These ads for Crazy Stupid Love feature scenes from the movie, which is a refreshing change to a lot of the cheesy looking staged rom-com billboards that Hollywood studios seem to usually opt for.
Crazy Stupid Love film billboard
What's also endearing is that the chosen visual fits nicely with the tagline, either This is Crazy, This is Love or This is Stupid.
Crazy Stupid Love movie billboard
And if that's not enough to woo you, then the all-star line up of Steve Carell, Julianne Moore, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Marisa Tomei and Kevin Bacon, should help convince you.
