Finally an Ad-TV! Starring: Huntington and Hilton

I have never been this impatient about a TV Show! (Except CSI and Apprentice.. and maybe Sex and The City back in the day….).

I shall pace myself and explain….

Basically, there is an Australian TV show (panel-based) called The Gruen Transfer (see here). The show is about advertising. The hosts discuss new ads, pull them apart, talk about more ads, discuss more ads…. basically it is a whole-lotta ads!
And now UK version is about to air! Brand Republic describes it as “Bills itself as an advertising version of Have I Got News For You, will aim to pull apart the business and creative output of the advertising industry.”

And who do we have in panel? The planning guru Richard Huntington (his blog: Adliterate) with James Hilton (AKQA) making the UK version of it to be broadcast on BBC3!

There is only one question remains now.. when will it start?!
