After the recent Emmy triumphs for CBS Television Studios’ “Late Late Show with James Corden” (Best Variety Special and Best Interactive Program) and “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” (Best Choreography and Best Comedy Editing), the broadcast studio is making waves throughout Hollywood with its truly inventive 2017 FYC mailer. In contrast to the huge amount of wasteful packages that are beginning to pile up in Emmy voters’ homes and offices, CBS has created a 100% recyclable mailer with an eco-friendly twist. “It’s wrapped in a plantable and seed-embedded belly band,” reveals CBS TV Studios to Gold Derby. See photos above and below.
Do you hear that, Emmy voters? Once you’re finished watching the provided episodes from “The Good Fight,” “Madam Secretary,” “Jane the Virgin,” “Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” “Late Late Show with James Corden” and “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” you can plant the FYC band out in your garden and watch it grow within 7-20 days. “This Emmy race, make the world a better place,” encourages the plantable band. “Planting the seed for your Emmy consideration.”
If Mother Earth were an Emmy voter, something tells us her tectonic plates would be shaking in excitement over this resourceful idea. One episode of each program is included on two DVDs within the Emmy mailer (see below for details), while CBS also provides voters with a link to their screening website where they can watch even more episodes and shows.
“The Good Fight” — Episode 101 — “Inauguration“
“Madam Secretary” — Episode 302 — “Sea Change”
“Jane the Virgin” — Episode 311 — “Chapter Fifty-Five”
“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” — Episode 213 — “Can Josh Take a Leap of Faith?”
“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” — February 14, 2017 — Featuring guest Christine Baranski & Musical Performance by Hans Zimmer
