Fox summer blitz anything but 'Simple'

4 June 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

An unconventional programming strategy calls for an unconventional marketing campaign, and that's what Fox Broadcasting Co. has on tap to support next week's launch of new primetime series as the network seeks to break out of the traditional September-May television season cycle.

"Our focus is trying to get content out there in interesting ways to really drive sampling for these shows, to get people excited about these shows and hopefully to get good ratings for our premieres," Fox executive vp marketing Roberta Mell said. »
