Innovative Campaign Will Include Weekly Sneak Preview of Each Episode on VOD and Broadband

LOS ANGELES -- TV Guide Network's headlining summer series, AMERICA'S NEXT PRODUCER, will be supported with the biggest marketing campaign and digital video distribution in the network's history. TV Guide Network's national marketing initiatives will generate a quarter of a billion impressions and will include a multi-million dollar media campaign across cable and satellite television, print, outdoor and online. Additionally, the company will launch an unprecedented level of digital content and online video extras to support AMERICA'S NEXT PRODUCER, which premieres on the network on Wednesday, July 18 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT with a repeat airing at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. For the first time ever, TV Guide Network will offer a sneak preview of each premiere episode one week in advance of the network telecast. The sneak preview of episode one is available now on TV Guide SPOT, the Company's video-on-demand network, and TV Guide Broadband, an ad-supported broadband programming service.

TV Guide SPOT will distribute AMERICA'S NEXT PRODUCER content across its 28 million home footprint on Cox, Comcast, Charter, Time Warner, Mediacom, Insight and Verizon. TV Guide Broadband will feature AMERICA'S NEXT PRODUCER content across all of its distribution partners, including: AOL Video (anp.aolvideo.com), YouTube (youtube.com/anp), Google Video, Veoh (veoh.com/anp) and Brightcove.

"Our digital efforts to support AMERICA'S NEXT PRODUCER are designed to accomplish three key objectives � awareness, sampling and digital revenue generation," said Dmitri Ponomarev, vice president, TV Guide SPOT and TV Guide Broadband. "We have worked closely with our distribution partners to provide unique content, including the sneak peek of the first episode ahead of the show on VOD and broadband. We are confident that once viewers have a chance to watch AMERICA'S NEXT PRODUCER, they will be avid fans of the show."
