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

And the correct answer is…

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. (The CW, Tuesdays, 9/8c)

 

Which is the real plot?

A. When spunky Cassie moves to a new town in rural Virginia, she befriends a mysterious group of misfits. After they ask her to participate in a séance to bring birds back from the dead, she becomes entangled in their nest of secrets.

B. After Cassie’s mother dies in what seems like a tragic accidental fire, she moves to the small town that her mother left years before. But all the residents mysteriously seem to know more about Cassie than she does about herself.

C. On a hiking trip, a group of students find themselves lost in the woods. After a panicked four days on the mountain, they return with a secret pact never to reveal the terrible secret about what happened…until Cassie decides to come clean.

    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!
