TV WEEK: Breakout Kings season two billboard...

Breakout Kings season 2 billboard
A bullet hole through shattered glass is pretty standard fare for crime-themed shows and movies, so the real intrigue here is which 'King' will take the fall in the second season of Breakout Kings.
Breakout Kings season 2 billboard
Maybe being an ex-con and helping the police to catch escaped fugitives isn't the best profession after all.

This simple, but arresting A&E TV billboard was snapped along Sunset Boulevard on February 14, 2012.

TV WEEK: Eastbound & Down season three TV billboards...

Giant Eastbound and Down billboard
In a world of Calvin Klein underwear models and picture perfect Hollywood leading men it's a refreshing change to see billboards like these for the third season of Eastbound & Down (they certainly captured Daily Billboard's attention anyway).

TV WEEK: Awake series premiere billboards...

Giant Awake TV billboard
Rise and shine folks, it's time to start another exciting TV WEEK here at Daily Billboard and what better way to kick things off than with a new series called 'Awake'.
Awake series premiere TV billboard
Jason Isaacs (or Harry Potter's 'Lucius Malfoy' by another name) stars as police detective 'Michael Britten' who was involved in a car accident with his family where one of them died.
Awake NBC billboard
The twist is that every time he goes to sleep he switches between parallel realities, in one his wife died and his son lived and in the other, vice versa.
Awake TV billboard
However not only does he have to deal with this sci-fi premise, but he's also got crimes to solve too.
Awake TV billboard
Daily Billboard loves the ad campaign for the new show with the edges blurred around the faces of the cast.

Apparently Britten wears different colour rubber bands in each reality to help differentiate between the two, red in the world his wife is alive and green where his son survived, so it's nice to see that subtly replicated in the billboard design too.
Awake season 1 billboard
It's also gratifying to see the duality theme of the show integrated into the Awake logo with the slightly off kilter 'E'.
Awake NBC billboard
Interestingly the large landscape billboard (below) which was snapped along Sunset Boulevard on February 14 is normally reserved for new movies, which may indicate how much NBC wants their new fantasy crime drama to succeed.

Meanwhile the extra tall creative was photographed along Vine Street in Hollywood on February 21, whilst the standard landscape billboard at Pico and La Cienega Boulevards on February 24, 2012.

FASHION WEEK: Giant Juicy Couture billboard...

Giant Juicy Couture billboard
Daily Billboard loves the carefree and fresh Spring feel of this giant Juicy Couture billboard along L.A.'s Sunset Strip, but most of all really appreciates that the fashion brand has chosen a bold and colourful creative to fill this huge ad space.
Juicy Couture billboard Sunset Strip
This is such a potentially impactful location with masses of heavy commuter traffic, that it's always a shame when advertisers don't fully utilise the billboard.

Take for example this Audrina Patridge Bongo bikini ad, Happily Divorced TV show billboard and giant Christian Louboutin shoe billboard, all on white backgrounds. A burst of color is just what was needed here for ultimate stand out.
Juicy Couture 2011 billboard
This super-sized Juicy Couture billboard was snapped along Sunset Boulevard on February 10, 2012, whilst here's also bonus standard landscape billboard for the hip fashion brand captured further east along The Strip on March 6, 2011.Giant Juicy Couture billboard 2012

FASHION WEEK: Joe's Jeans Fifty Five Colors billboards...

Joe's Jeans 55 colors train billboard
Daily Billboard loves the rich hues of Joe's Jeans latest billboard for its Fifty Five Colors campaign.
Joe's Jeans fifty five colors billboard
The new billboard, with the model sitting on the snakeskin suitcase on the train station platform, also helps explain the previous ad from the same campaign which was a bit confusing and underwhelming by comparison. Now we know the girls are in a train carriage the fashion story is far more understandable.
Joe's Jeans 55 colors billboard
The train platform ad was snapped at the corner of La Cienega and Beverly Boulevards on January 28, 2012.

Meanwhile, the previous ad was snapped in the same location on December 3, 2011, plus along Hollywood Boulevard on one of the most unusual billboard sites that Daily Billboard has seen.

FASHION WEEK: James Franco Gucci made-to-measure billboard...

Gucci made to measure billboard
It's strange, yet a welcome sight, to see James Franco looking sharp in a suit from Gucci's made-to-measure service this close to the Oscars, especially after last year's disappointing turn with the actor as co-host.

Both the actor and fashion house both know how to pull of some old Hollywood glamour with this stylish mono billboard, snapped along Sunset Boulevard next to the Chateau Marmont Hotel on February 8, 2012.
