The Ad/Billboard Designs Will Debut Outdoors, in Print

And Online Later This Summer

CBS has released a sneak peek of the key art designs for the Network’s four new series, ELEMENTARY, VEGAS, MADE IN JERSEY and PARTNERS, to begin appearing in print, online and outdoors later this summer.


The key art of the drama series ELEMENTARY, a contemporary take on the legendary characters of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson set in New York City, features series stars Jonny Lee Miller (Holmes) and Lucy Liu (Watson). The copy reads: New Holmes. New Watson. New York.

The new comedy series PARTNERS is about two life-long best friends and business partners in New York City whose “bromance” is tested when one of them is engaged to be married. David Krumholtz plays Joe, an architect who is newly engaged to Ali (Sophia Bush), a jewelry designer, and Michael Urie plays Louis, Joe’s gay friend/co-worker who is dating Wyatt (Brandon Routh), a nurse. The print design features (left to right) Routh, Urie, Krumholtz and Bush. The copy reads: Four Friends. Three Couples.

VEGAS is a drama inspired by the true story of former Las Vegas Sheriff Ralph Lamb, a rancher tasked with bringing order to 1960s Las Vegas as it begins its rise as a gambling and entertainment mecca. Lamb finds himself repeatedly clashing with Vincent Savino, a ruthless Chicago gangster who plans to make Vegas his own. The print ad features Dennis Quaid (Lamb) on the left and Michael Chiklis (Savino) on the right, with the supporting characters and a glittering retro Vegas sign below. The copy reads: Let the Sin Begin.

For MADE IN JERSEY, a drama series about Martina Garretti (Janet Montgomery), a young working-class woman from New Jersey who uses her street smarts to compete among her pedigreed Manhattan colleagues at a prestigious New York law firm, the key art design features Montgomery. The copy reads: Every Underdog Has Her Day.

The new series’ premiere dates and times follow: PARTNERS – Monday, Sept. 24 (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT); VEGAS – Tuesday, Sept. 25 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT); ELEMENTARY – Thursday, Sept. 27 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT); MADE IN JERSEY – Friday, Sept. 28 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT).

    CBS managed to have the least-anticipated new show for the Fall, despite having the overall strongest schedule.

  • a p garcia

    The promos for Made in Jersey doesn’t bode well a long run. Elementary may be a breakout series. I personally can’t wait for a new season of POI.

  • lll

    @a p garcia
    I agree–GO POI!!!

  • sebacon

    this dont will help CBS, the new series seems to be very boring.

  • Tommy

    “Partners” is the only show on CBS I’m interested in. “Vegas” looks good but being on CBS it will turn into a procedural sooner rather than later and those can never hold my attention more than a handful of episodes…

  • ChrisA

    “Made In Jersey” is the only new decent show from CBS. It’s going to be competing with “Nikita”, “Grimm”, and “Fringe”.

  • Gaius Bolling

    isn’t lucy liu on southland?

  • Ross

    I live in Canada, so Partners and Made in Jersey are on cityTV, and Vegas and Elementary are on CTV.

  • r0ckmypants

    @Gaius – She was a guest actress in all the episodes in which she starred; plus her character got a promotion at the end of the last season, so she’ll be easy to write off, if necessary.

  • Annonimous

    Mr. Reese will own you times and times again !

  • Dean-W

    What about ‘Friend Me’ ? It will premiere mid-season ?

  • carla

    I am getting warmer about “Elementary” but the big CBS draw for me is the return of the fantastic POI. Can. Not. Wait.

  • hubert_wentland

    oh, no i get the title of ‘Made in Jersey’.

    /working-class woman from New Jersey who uses her street smarts to compete among her pedigreed Manhattan colleagues/

    kinda offensive.

  • jake

    all four sound boring. bet CBS won’t be the most watched network this coming season.

    CBS usually does quite well especially these past 10 years. However, the three new series they are overhyping all look horrible. Shark Jumpers from the get go.

    Bringing Sherlock and Watson into NYC and in 2012? WTF? Lucy Liu always is hot and anything she does she knocks out of the park. However the good ends with Lucy Liu. She will enable this droll hour long show to make it through it’s first and last season run. I’m sorry but, when I think of Sherlock Holmes I think of Basil Rathbone not his wimpy guy with the grating nasily voice. He comes across as a snarky know it all nerd who is trying too hard to become a legendary hipster. Lucy Liu deserves better. I give Elementary a 2 out of 10 and I’m being generous. Only because of Lucy Liu do I give this thing anything above a big fat zero.

    I never cared for the over the top un-funny Will and Grace. And the same people that subjected us to W & G bring us Partners. Why oh why did CBS have to jettison Two and Half Men to Thursday to make room for this retarded sh*tcom? I don’t like these generic New York hipster yuppie characters. The two guys should make appearances and prance and dance on Glee. Every few years CBS puts a stinker in the 8:30 PM Monday night comedy slot. Who can forget the awful “The Class?” Or worse yet the Titanic venture starring Jenna Elfman called (Can’t remember the title; Was it Absolutely Fabulous?) Lame characters and anything but funny. If Partners makes it beyond season one it proves that we are losing vital brain matter at increasing rates each year. I give Partners a negative 3 out of 10! This stinker is better suited for NBC on Thursday nights.

    If I were from North Jersey or New York and was of Italian descent I’d be having kittens in overdrive! The lead actress Julie Montgomery is cute, looks great in a miniskirt with athletic legs but that’s where it ends. She portrays a gum chewing “Guidette” who becomes an attorney and hooks up with an elite law firm in New York City. Like we need more shows featuring lawyers
    and in Gotham. Her North Jersey accent is like fingernails across that blackboard. This show is like a bad hybrid of The Mary Tyler Moore show mixed with That Girl and a spin off of Jersey Shore. The first two shows I mentioned were funny and had their moments. I’ll keep my thoughts about Jersey Shore to myself. This one’s on Friday nights. The graveyard for TV shows. So, it just may be a case of Any Port In A Storm and Made In Jersey may hang on for up to three seasons not because it’s good but because Friday night’s feature such dreck on TV! I give Made in Joisy a 1.5 out of 10 only for it’s supporting characters. The one silver lining in this cloud may be the statuesque bitchy lawyer character played by the hot Stephanie March. Cruella DeVille terrorizing the elite New York law office. Maybe the
    North Jersey gum chewing lawyer will hook up with some rapper hoodlum from the hood and she’ll get knocked up and have his baby. For Sweeps I’m waiting for an episode starring Snooki and the Situation as stupid criminals being represented by the Made In Jersey eye candy lawyer.

    Correction: The cute actress with the nice legs and grating North Jersey “Guidette” accent is Janet not Julie Montgomery. I apologize for this error. And she’s from jolly old England to boot. Wow!
