Las Vegas, NV (March 28, 2012) –SK+G will make its national television debut when AMC’s new unscripted docu-style series, The Pitch, airs on April 30 at 9pm ET/PT. The agency was filmed while competing against a New York-based agency for a national brand assignment last Fall. Executive produced by Eli Holzman and Stephen Lambert from Studio Lambert (“Undercover Boss,” “Project Runway”), “The Pitch” chronicles the incredible lengths, intense stakes and tight deadlines top advertising agencies encounter when they take aim at a major new piece of business. The series follows the best creative shops as they prepare campaigns knowing that in the end, it all comes down to the pitch. Real competition, major stakes and an incredible ticking clock are all elements of this docu-style series.
Jerry Kramer, managing partner, shares “Other agencies may have felt intimidated by the invasiveness of cameras filming their creative process but I am proud of the resident IQ in our agency and was not worried about looking foolish. We are fearless and in this business, you have to be.”
John Schadler, managing partner, adds “Because our agency is well known around the world for our expertise in the luxury lifestyle category, we relished the opportunity to participate in a pitch for a brand so uniquely different. This presented a tremendous challenge for us and we’re very proud of the work we produced.”
