geek chic (part one)

When two airlines offered me the chance to redeem some frequent flyer miles that were about to expire, I used the miles for several magazine subscriptions. A recent issue of Daily Variety came with a front page advertisement that had a pocket with a DVD in it. The two-page ad had nothing but lines like " of the best shows on television..." and " of the richest dramatic enterprises on TV..." Nowhere in the copy or on the disc does it say the name of the show. Of course, if I looked up the names of all the Peabody Award winners, I would be able to figure out which show they were promoting for Emmy Award consideration. Rather than hog all the fun myself, I'll let you post your guess in the comments section. Tomorrow (or the next day) I'll pop the screener in the machine and we'll find out what show is using this stealth marketing technique.
