Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. Key Developments
Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. and MillerCoors LLC Team Up for Wide-Scale
Mar 20 13
Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. is partnering with MillerCoors LLC in 2013 through a variety of marketing executions spanning TBS, TNT, CNN, truTV, Funny Or Die, NBA on TNT, Bleacher Report, NASCAR.com and more. Each component is uniquely developed to reach the right audience for the specific MillerCoors brands, including Coors Light, Miller Lite, Miller 64, Blue Moon and Leinenkugel's, as well as new brands such as Redd's Apple Ale and Third Shift. Media agency Initiative was responsible for negotiating the deal on behalf of MillerCoors. Starting current month and going throughout the year, MillerCoors brands will appear in many of TBS and TNT's most popular original series through responsible product integration and set dressing. Through this one-of-a-kind, category-exclusive arrangement, writers for TBS and TNT originals now have access to incorporate a MillerCoors product wherever it makes sense to incorporate a beer, neons, barware, tap-handles and even trucks. This writer's wall approach will span multiple shows, with in-show integrations like Blue Moon within TNT's Rizzoli & Isles, which starts its fourth season in June; Coors Light, along with additional brands featured at the bar setting of TBS's Sullivan & Son, returning for its second season in June; Miller Lite within the current season of TNT's Dallas airing Mondays at 9 p.m. (ET/PT); Coors Light and Blue Moon within TNT's Franklin & Bash, returning for its third season in late summer; and Miller 64 and Miller Lite integrations within TNT's upcoming competition series, The Hero, featuring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, premiering in June. Additional series in which integrations may appear include TNT's Perception, Major Crimes, King & Maxwell, and TBS's Deon Cole's Black Box.
