CBS Television Studios just sent its Emmy Awards FYC mailer to all members of the TV academy and it’s setting itself apart from the pack by utilizing the world’s largest digital platform — iTunes — to give voters access to its shows. Take a peek inside the campaign box by scrolling through our photo gallery above.
The mailer includes individual booklets and DVD screeners of the production company’s top series, including Emmy-winning “The Good Wife,” the Tea Leoni starrer “Madam Secretary,” CW’s critically hailed “Jane the Virgin” and “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” and late night entries “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and “Late Late Show with James Corden,” the latter of which includes the buzzed-about Carpool Karaoke episode featuring Adele.
While rival network, cable and digital platforms are sending Emmy voters to their own FYC websites to access more episodes and full seasons, CBS is letting voters watch their offerings for free on iTunes. Far more easily accessible on mobile and tablets with just the touch of an app, this could prove to be a smart move for the Tiffany network.
