IFC Signs Jameson to Sponsor Original Comedy Series, ”The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret”

Series Airs Fridays @ 10 pm

NEW YORK, NY – October 4, 2010 – IFC (www.ifc.com) has brought advertiser Jameson on board to sponsor the network’s original comedy series, "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret," which debuted Friday, October 1 and airs Friday nights at 10 pm, et/pt.

Jameson will receive on-air exposure around the series via a custom 60-second vignette incorporating show footage and Jameson creative to preview the series’ next episode. The piece will play at the end of each episode and be followed by a 30-second Jameson spot. Jameson also received on-site exposure at IFC’s premiere screening for the series at the New York Television Festival on Thursday, September 23.

"Both IFC and Jameson are brands that explore the ’slightly off’ side of things – IFC via the indie perspective it brings to original programming like Todd Margaret, and Jameson through its latest ad campaign," said Vanessa Benfield, senior vice president, partnership sales & integrated solutions, IFC & Sundance Channel. "This off-kilter approach is what makes this a truly great pairing for both brands."

"Agreed," said Frankie Pezzella, Senior Brand Manager on Jameson. "The synergy between the show and Jameson’s wit are an authentic fit. Jameson connects with consumers by staying true to its great whiskey character but we tell our story with a twist and we don’t take ourselves too seriously."
