TV WEEK: Whitney billboards...

Whitney Morning Sex TV billboard
Comedienne Whitney Cummings gets her own sitcom this Fall TV season, entitled Whitney for obvious reasons, and she also gets a smattering of funny billboards and posters around L.A. to support the show's launch.
Whitney Marriages End billboard
It really is a great campaign with eye-catching, truthful headlines like 'Whoever invented morning sex forgot about morning breath' and 'Half of all marriages end in sweatpants' to grab passersby attention.
Whitney Silent Treatment billboard
One of Daily Billboard's favourite creatives for the new sitcom is 'Women are like emotional ninjas. "I'm fine" means I'm going to stab you in the neck'. Sadly this one was only found in poster form rather than on a billboard.

It's nice to see a show not rely on a single creative execution to sell a new concept.

These witty billboards for Whitney were snapped along Sunset Boulevard, Beverly Boulevard and Wilshire Boulevard on August 17, 2011.

Only time will tell if the new comedy series lives up to the humour of this fun and cohesive billboard campaign.

TV WEEK: Person of Interest billboards...

Person of Interest billboard
With the Fall 2011 television season fast approaching, here's another TV WEEK of billboards packed with exciting new comedy, crime and sci-fi shows, including these ads for Person of Interest which seem to be looking down everywhere upon L.A. at the moment.
Person of Interest billboard
Adding intrigue to this new show is LOST's Michael Emerson as the billionaire inventor of a software program that can predict people who are about to be involved in violent crimes.
Giant Person of Interest billboard
He's joined by Jim Caviezel as 'John Reese', a former CIA operative who joins with Emerson's 'Mr. Finch' to prevent these crimes before they happen.

The billboard design's nice CCTV surveillance camera feel to it reinforces the premise of the show and makes for an interesting visual for the new series.

The two larger billboards were photographed near L.A.'s Hollywood & Highland Center, whilst the standard format was snapped along Wilshire Boulevard at Sweetzer Avenue on August 16, 2011.

True Religion Fall Collection 2011 billboard...

True Religion Jeans Fall 2011 billboard
Gabriel Aubry and Anne Vyalitsyna looking awfully wistful in this ad for True Religion Jeans, but maybe that's because they are lamenting the approaching end of Summer.

This cool fashion billboard was snapped along Sunset Boulevard at Crescent Heights Boulevard on August 5, 2011.

If you're a fan of the male model, be sure to also check out this shirtless Gabriel Aubry billboard for True Religion Jeans.

Vancouver Aquarium jellyfish billboard...

Vancouver Aquarium jellyfish billboard
Daily Billboard recently took a trip to Vancouver, but was a bit dismayed to discover the lack of billboard ads compared to their sheer abundance in L.A. and New York.

However, of the few billboards scattered about the Canadian city this colourful creative for the Vancouver Aquarium stood out, especially with its 3D mounted jellyfish providing some extra visual interest.

This tourist attraction billboard was snapped near Granville Bridge in Vancouver, British Columbia on August 1, 2011.

Shirtless Patrick Schwarzenegger Hudson Jeans billboard...

Patrick Schwarzenegger Hudson Jean billboard
Following all the recent damaging allegations revolving around his father's illegitimate son, a shirtless 17-year-old Patrick Schwarzenegger proves that he's not ready to relinquish the Schwarzenegger limelight to his half brother quite yet, as he poses for this new Hudson Jeans Fall 2011 campaign.
Shirtless Patrick Schwarzenegger Hudson Jeans billboard
Celebrity models always make for great PR value, especially when your father is the ex-Governor of California surrounded by scandal and a Hollywood box office superstar. He may be in front of the lens, but at this stage it doesn't look like slender Patrick will be following in Arnie's pumped up body-building footsteps.

This stylish mono fashion billboard was snapped along Sunset Boulevard above The Happy Ending bar and restaurant on August 14, 2011.

DUO DAY: Contagion movie billboards...

Contagion movie billboard
Don't talk to anyone. Don't touch anyone.
Contagion billboard
Scary words for the movie Contagion, and it feels like this will be one of those apocalyptic scenarios you wish you'd never seen, but will be totally engrossed while you watch it.
Contagion movie billboard
Not only is this an intriguing possible vision of the future, but these are two pretty captivating billboards for the movie too.

The text only 'biohazard' version is a clever way to illustrate the spread of the disease, with major cities around the world helping to spell out the title of the movie.
Contagion film billboard
And if the premise of this thriller isn't enough to entice you, then the montage of famous faces that includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, Laurence Fishburne, Marion Cotillard, Jude Law and Matt Damon should tempt you.

The text only creative was snapped along Wilshire Boulevard at La Jolla Avenue, whilst the cast composite billboard was photographed along Sunset Boulevard at Holloway Drive and Beverly Boulevard on August 16, 2011.

TV WEEK: Charlie's Angels billboards...

Charlie's Angels remake TV billboard
If you're a fan of the original hit 70's series, Daily Billboard is sure you'll be interested in Charlie's new Angels looking all angelic in white along L.A.'s Sunset Strip.

The studio obviously wanted to stay away from the iconic Charlie's Angels pose to create something new for the re-imagined TV show (which is a shame), but instead of a kick-ass creative they opted for a look that could be any number of haircare or beauty product advertisements.
Charlie's Angels 2011 Sunset Strip billboard
But if a disgraced cop (Annie Ilonzeh), a street racer (Minka Kelly) and a thief (Rachael Taylor) deserve a second chance, maybe we should give this billboard creative the benefit of the doubt and wait to see how the show turns out before passing judgement.
Charlie's Angels 2011 billboard
A smaller billboard for the TV remake was snapped along Melrose Avenue on August 17, 2011.

For a slightly more inventive billboard, be sure to check out the show's Hello, Angels teaser billboard.

Stay tuned for even more new season television billboards in the future here at Daily Billboard, as it's that crazy time of the year when networks try all manner of new series concepts, format shake-ups, re-imaginings and remakes to grab viewers attention.

UPDATED: A few weeks later and this new incarnation of Charlie's Angels nabbed one of the hottest ad spots further along the Sunset Strip to sell their new adventures with this giant billboard, snapped on September 8, 2011.

Apparently these ladies may look angelic, but they're not saints.

TV WEEK: The Playboy Club billboard...

The Playboy Club NBC billboard
A show called The Playboy Club is always going to attract attention by its very title, but it also helps if you have a great billboard to sell the new concept too.
The Playboy Club Hollywood billboard
This colourful creative really does stand out from afar and instantly conveys the theme of the show.

Set in the early 60's, no doubt cashing in on the popularity and critical acclaim of Mad Men, the series will follow the 'Bunnies' of the first Playboy Club in Chicago.
