TNT will feature both a 90-second extended trailer and a 30-second spot featuring a select scene from the film within the premiere episode. In addition, custom co-branded tune-in spots featuring clips from the film were created to promote Ingluorious Basterds out in theatres Aug. 21 and DARK BLUE premiering on Jul. 15. Inglourious Basterds is written and directed by Quentin Tarantino.
