ABC is planning a short four-episode run of a science fiction offering called “V” and has come up with a unique marketing plan. It is going to send skywriting planes up into the air over several major cities and put the title up there for citizens to see.
One report said the huge red “V” would appear over 26 landmarks, yet to be disclosed. Another report in the Washington Post said that certain cities, including “New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, Seattle, Minneapolis, Orlando, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Dallas, Austin, Tempe AZ [Phoenix] and Santa Monica CA [Los Angeles again] were in the mix.
Washington DC is not in the plan due to air space restrictions that have been in force since the terrorist attacks of 9/11/01.
The Post story pointed out how ABC touts its “green” credentials at every opportunity, and then is going to go out and spew smoke over America even while the airplanes spew lead-enriched fuel exhaust into the atmosphere.
