The TV Brand Builders is the account of how the biggest television networks, channels and programs are created as brands, with rare privileged access to the marketing strategies and creative thinking behind culturally-defining TV promos, digital and social media campaigns and design identities. Two leading practitioners interview 50 international industry experts to show how these favorite TV shows find an audience, and how the great TV brands are built. Examples drawn from major broadcasters such as Fox, AMC, and HBO, and popular shows including "American Horror Story," "Mad Men," and "Doctor Who" highlight the marketing, advertising, and design techniques that work best in TV.
