Their campaign, “Welcoming Broadband to the World of Television” promotes standards for excellence in primetime genre television programming, created for distribution via broadcast, cable, satellite or broadband. This includes primetime dramas, comedies, variety/musical shows, “long form” including mini-series, made-for-television movies, reality shows, nonfiction filmmaking and primetime animation.
“We looked for a way to acknowledge the Television Academy’s rich history, yet keep our focus on the future,” stated Television Academy Chairman and CEO John Shaffner. “This campaign clearly plays on the love and evolution of television.”
Print and online ads will run in industry media outlets such as Variety, Hollywood Reporter and Television Week. Outdoor executions will appear in high-profile Los Angeles locations, including one on Sunset and San Vicente. Additionally, a targeted digital word-of-mouth campaign by interactive agency Marketingworks, Inc., will engage online communities.
The 60th Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony will be held Sunday, Sept. 21, 2008 in Los Angeles.

    Whoops. Isn’t that exactly like the TV Land work Martin did only a few years ago?
    With the same characters even?
    Yikes.
    Wherefore art thou, WongDoody?
