Shameless may already be almost half way through its sixth season, but don't despair, it's already renewed for a seventh season, so there's plenty more dysfunctional shenanigans to come from the Gallaghers.

Younger season one and two TV billboards...

Younger season 2 TV Land billboard
Did you feel bolder, wiser and sexier when you were younger?

If not maybe you were doing it wrong, or maybe you should be masquerading as someone Younger as Sutton Foster does in TV Land's romantic comedy.

Now in its second season, Darren Star's series follows a 40-year-old single mother, who with a makeover and some flattery from a cute twenty-something guy, gets a second chance to reboot her career and her love life as a 26-year-old.

This joyful season two billboard featuring Hilary Duff, Sutton Foster and Debi Mazar was snapped along West Hollywood's Sunset Strip on January 8, 2016.

Giant Younger season 1 billboard Sunset Strip
It's funny, when you're younger you always want to be older (to have more independence and your chance to drink at bars and clubs), but when you grow up you're always wishing you were younger again (or could look younger at least and have less responsibility).

No matter your age, you're only as young or old as you feel.

UPDATED: Fans of the TV Land show can also enjoy these season six billboards for Younger.
Younger season 6 FYC 2019 billboard

Zoolander 2 movie billboards...

Zoolander 2 movie billboard
In fashion, the say one day you're in and the next you're out, that is, unless you are really, really, ridiculously good looking like 'Derek Zoolander' and his supermodel friends.
Zoolander 2 special extension movie billboard
Fifteen years after Zoolander's first big screen outing and genius satire of the fashion industry, the clueless male fashion model played by Ben Stiller, notorious for his iconic 'Blue Steel' pose, is back on the runway with Owen Wilson's 'Hansel'.
Zoolander No 2 film billboard
This time around when the beautiful people of the world are targeted for extermination and die with his signature 'Blue Steel' look on their face, they're joined on the catwalk by Penelope Cruz, who recruits the aging supermodels for Interpol to infiltrate the world of high fashion, where they'll find Kristen Wiig (doing her best Donatella Versace impression) and discover Will Ferrell's 'Jacobim Mugatu' is free from prison and out for revenge.
Zoolander No 2 movie billboard
This fun ad campaign for the highly-anticipated movie sequel, dubbed 'No. 2' like a designer fragrance, not the bowel-movement, is plastered all over the streets and skies of L.A. at the moment.
Zoolander 2 selfie billboard
This special 'Selfie' extra-dimensional billboard along the Sunset Strip featuring Zoolander and Hansel is especially fun and immediately sums up the superficial nature of the characters for a new generation of cinema goers.
Zoolander 2 movie billboard
The standard and special extension creatives for Zoolander 2 were spied along La Brea Avenue, Beverly Boulevard, Melrose Avenue and Highland Avenue from January 20 to January 24, 2016.

Zoolander 2 special extension billboard
UPDATED: Zoolander No. 2 has also turned L.A.'s busy traffic corridor of La Brea Avenue into a veritable fashion catwalk this month, with a series of wonderful character billboards on both sides of the southbound road.

Then they are followed by Will Ferrell's 'Mugatu' with his matching fashion accessory poodle, and around the bend you'll glimpse this fun 'Long time no Z' ad creative as part of the campaign.
Long time no Z Zoolander 2 billboard
Sadly the interconnecting duo of billboards with 'Derek' and Kristen Wiig's 'Alexanya Atoz' has been spoiled with graffiti (let's hope Clear Channel Outdoor rectifies that), but you get the idea.
Ben Stiller Zoolander 2 movie billboard
Kristen Wiig Zoolander 2 Alexanya Atoz billboard
And finally Penelope Cruz gets here moment in the spotlight as the sexy Interpol agent, 'Melanie Valentina', looking divine in red.

Sadly at this time of year the winter sun is too low to really showcase these creatives in the best light during the day, but they still make a wonderful spectacle as you pass along the busy road.
Interconnecting Zoolander 2 movie billboards
UPDATED: Hoorah, here's the Kristen Wiig billboard with the graffiti removed, which helps show the blue fabric of her outfit flowing into the interconnecting billboard featuring Ben Stiller's Derek Zoolander.

All-singing, all-dancing Grease Live! TV billboards...

Grease Live billboard
There's nothing like originality on television to get audiences excited, but sadly Fox following in the footsteps of NBC's live musicals is not at all original.
Grease Live! Pink Ladies dancing billboard
Fortunately they've chosen well with the hit musical Grease as their first live outing and they've even been having some fun promoting the three-hour telecast with this all-singing, all-dancing live-action billboard installation along the Sunset Strip.
Grease Live! dancing billboard installation
Grease: Live will be helmed by Thomas Kail, who's responsible for Broadway's runaway hit Hamilton, and will mash-up the fan-favourite 1978 film set at Rydell High School, with elements of the 1972 stage play.

Dancing with the Stars Julianne Hough is the new 'Sandy', the suitably hunky Aaron Tveit fills the T-Bird leather jacket of 'Danny Zuko', Vanessa Hudgens brings 'Rizzo' to life and even 'Frenchy' gets a pop star makeover courtesy of Carly Rae Jepsen.
Grease Live billboard
The standard landscape billboard was first spied along West Hollywood's Sunset Strip by the Chateau Marmont Hotel on January 3, whilst the PR stunt version with the live performers dancing on the raised platform in front of the billboard hoarding was photographed on January 25, 2016.
Pink Ladies Grease Live dancing billboard
Here's also a short video of the Pink Ladies dancing to 'Beauty School Dropout' and passersby could also interact with the installation by using the Shazam app on their smartphones to access a Grease: Live music video.
If you like this 'live theatre' billboard, be sure to also check out this Mardi Gras carnival dancing billboard for Rio 2, this living billboard for Arthur Christmas and even this gym workout billboard for Pain & Gain's Blu-ray release.

You can also check out these billboards for NBC's live versions of The Sound of Music, Peter Pan and The Wiz, which inspired this new live TV event.

Fans of the original 1978 film will also get a kick out of seeing the Grease Lighting car on display at Madame Tussauds in Hollywood.

Now get ready to chew some gum, do the hand jive and sing-along to one of the greatest movie musicals of all time (let's just hope this is the one that we want).
Grease Live! performers billboard
UPDATED: Grease Live! was certainly a ratings hit and whilst some of the performances were a bit bland, the staging of the live extravaganza was pretty impressive. Let's see if TV industry voters feel the same way, as this Emmy consideration billboard was spotted along Olympic Boulevard in West L.A. to help garner nominations on June 2, 2016.
