Would You Watch This New Fall TV Show? Please??

And the correct answer is…

A. Emily Thorne and her family were cast out of the Hamptons after something bad happened to ruin her family and their reputation. Now Emily is back as a new girl, and no one suspects her secret agenda of revenge. (ABC, Wednesdays, 10/9c)


Which is the real plot?

A. After her father is found guilty of a Ponzi scheme, socialite Bridget is forced to take a low-paying job as a window-washer in New York City, which allows for self-reflection while she “wrings out” her personal issues.

B. Bridget is a hotel heiress who joins an all-female underground boxing league that spars in the Chrysler Building. The brutality of the ring helps her shed the blame she feels for causing her twin sister’s death, and she begins to feel alive for the first time.

C. After witnessing a murder, Bridget goes on the run, hiding out by assuming the life of her wealthy identical twin sister – only to learn that her sister’s seemingly idyllic life is just as complicated and dangerous as the one she’s trying to leave behind.

    Well, I missed one — A Gifted Man — badly. I thought your plotline about a secret Santa sounded more entertaining than the lame-o one that turned out to be true. Got the others, though, largely because I know a hackneyed TV plotline when I see one (or, at least, 3 out of 4 times when I see one). Agree, however, that these posters aren’t advertising and they certainly don’t approach being post-advertising. Not sure what they are.

    As consumers, we don’t want predictable plot lines and generic posters, we want new and original ideas – both in terms of advertising and in terms of the show itself. The fact that you could identify these plot lines based on your own preconceptions, not the posters themselves, shows that they aren’t doing their job of engaging consumers!
