Wolfenstein video game billboard
In the world of outdoor advertising variety is the spice of life, and amongst all the Summer season fashion, blockbuster movie and Emmy Consideration TV billboards it's always refreshing to see something different, like these striking ads for the latest installment in the Wolfenstein video game franchise.

Wolfenstein: The New Order is a first-person shooter game where you play agent 'William "B. J." Blazkowicz', who is tasked with taking down the Nazis in an alternate 1960's Europe where they won World War II.

Extant series premiere TV billboard...

Halle Berry Extant series premiere billboard
With Under the Dome last Summer CBS struck a ratings home run, so it's no wonder that the TV network would try and make the magic happen again with another slice of sci-fi to try and recapture audiences imagination.
Extant CBS billboard
In the new science fiction mystery, Extant, Oscar-winner Halle Berry headlines as an astronaut who returns home to Earth from a year long mission alone in space to discover that she is pregnant.

How is she miraculously pregnant and with what, are just some of the questions we and her husband, played by Goran Visnjic, will no doubt want answered over the course of the series.
Extant series premiere billboard
This series premiere billboard was spied at the intersection of Fairfax Avenue and Beverly Boulevard on May 25, 2014, and it looks as if that's a baby sonogram made up of star constellations floating above Halle Berry's face.

If you're a fan of the actress, be sure to also check out these cool movie billboards for The Call.

At least we know that she'll have more to do in this series than as 'Storm' in the latest X-Men: Days of Future Past movie, but let's hope this is more Cloud Atlas than Catwoman.

More 2014 Emmy Consideration TV billboards...

Key Peele Vote for us or Donald Sterling wins Emmy 2014 billboard
You've seen what HBO and AMC's Mad Men have to offer, so here's more Emmy Award Consideration billboard support from the likes of Comedy Central, Amazon, NBC, ABC, Netflix and for more AMC shows.
Amy Poehler Parks and Recreation 2014 Emmy billboard
In addition to marketing and advertising opportunities from winning, there's also the bragging rights of having the channel or network with the most critically-acclaimed shows, which can help attract new and established talent for future collaborations.

NBC started their Emmy campaign early this year with this cheeky Amy Poehler Parks and Recreation 'Certified Public Servant' billboard snapped on April 7 along Sunset Boulevard (plus Daily Billboard also drove past a creative for NBC's The Blacklist but was unable to stop and photograph at the time).
Walking Dead Something Human Carol Emmy 2014 billboard
Daily Billboard is also keeping everything crossed for AMC's The Walking Dead this year, as there really is 'Something Human' about the show.
Walking Dead Something Human Rick Emmy billboard
Snubbed in the past for its horror genre credentials, this ratings winning cable show is less about the gory zombie apocalypse and more about the humanity and struggle of surviving in the aftermath.
Daryl Rick Walking Dead Emmy 2014 billboard
These character driven billboards featuring pivotal moments from season four showcasing various survivors, most poignantly 'Carol' at a graveside after another of the series stunning, unconventional moments, are surely worthy of a few Best Drama Emmy nominations this season.
Walking Dead Glenn Hershel Emmy billboard
The 'Rick Grimes' ad creative was spotted along Hollywood Boulevard on May 19 (and the version with 'Daryl' a week or so later along Cahuenga Boulevard), the 'Carol' billboard on May 21 along La Brea Avenue and the prison scene between a sick 'Glenn' and 'Hershel' was snapped along Vine Street on May 24, 2014.
Alpha House Seriously Funny Emmy 2014 billboard
From deadly serious to 'seriously funny' and even though Daily Billboard didn't see any outdoor ads supporting the launch of Amazon Studio's first original TV series, Alpha House, it looks the streaming service is going all out to support the show and its cast.
Alpha House John Goodman Emmy 2014 billboard
Will this 'fearlessly outrageous' billboard for John Goodman be able to garner some votes for his portrayal as a U.S. Senator sharing a house with three other politicians in Washington D.C.

House of Cards season 2 Emmy Consideration 2014 billboard
Meanwhile Netflix's hit drama House of Cards is back in the skies of L.A. along Beverly Boulevard on May 28 to get all the votes it can muster for the scheming political series, especially as both Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright missed out last year after being nominated in their respective Lead Actor categories.

One of the funniest Emmy Consideration billboards this month has to be this topical 'Vote for us of Donald Sterling wins' creative for Comedy Central's Key & Peele sketch show.

In the short term there's all the marketing advantages, from raising the profile of a show to encouraging new viewers to give your series a chance if they haven't already.
