truTV is proud to announce a bold, visually arresting
new brand campaign
via this dry, text-heavy Cynopsis ad.

Funny because it’s tru.
Don’t take our word for it. Watch our new spots..


truTV is launching a new brand campaign that spotlights the Turner network’s programming transformation into a home for comedy-driven reality and scripted series. The network’s new tagline is: “Funny because it’s tru.” The cross-platform campaign, which truTV created with its new agency partner WorkInProgress, showcases talent from the network’s shows including Impractical Jokers, Adam Ruins Everything, and Those Who Can’t. “Our goal with this campaign was to re-introduce viewers to truTV and our hilarious roster of talent and shows,” Puja Vohra, EVP of marketing and digital, tells Cynopsis. “Our new tagline captures both our comedic identity and approach to life. The inspiration for this campaign was all those intentionally ridiculous spots that networks have done over the years featuring unnaturally glammed up TV stars awkwardly interacting on an over-lit set. They were meant to be ridiculous, right? Oh god, I hope so.”

Is Megyn Kelly headed to CNN? The question is in the air after a Matt Drudge report yesterday said she “may” jump to the network that competes with her current home news net Fox News Channel. Drudge cited an unnamed source who reports CNN chief Jeff Zucker wants Kelly to make the move, offering carrots including the possibility of Kelly starring in a movie for CNN sibling Warner Bros. Kelly’s contract with FNC comes up in 2017.

Philip I. Kent will be nominated for election to the Scripps Networks Interactive board of directors at its annual shareholder meeting in 2017. Kent served as CEO of Turner Broadcasting System from 2003-13. He will succeed director David Galloway, who will be retiring from the board after nine years of service.
