ABC ANNOUNCES UNPRECEDENTED PARTNERSHIP WITH TARGET AND
NEIMAN MARCUS WITH FIRST-OF-ITS KIND INTEGRATION ON HIT SERIES “REVENGE”
Target and Neiman Marcus have partnered with ABC for a ground-breaking integration in conjunction with the critically acclaimed series “Revenge.” As part of the highly anticipated reveal of the retailers’ holiday collection, Target and Neiman Marcus will be the exclusive show sponsor in the episode airing Sunday, November 11 (9:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. In lieu of commercials, the retailers are working directly with the creative team of “Revenge” -- a series known for its flair for fashion and high style -- to create original content incorporating the Target+ Neiman Marcus holiday collection.
“This is an unprecedented event on every level,” said
Marla Provencio, chief marketing officer, executive
vice president, ABC Entertainment Group. “It has been
a great experience collaborating with these two iconic
brands, and we are thrilled that they chose ABC’s
‘Revenge’ as the exclusive partner.”
“The scale of our partnership with Neiman Marcus propelled us to go well beyond the traditional approach and develop marketing initiatives that reflect the historic nature of this collaboration,” said Jeff Jones, chief marketing officer and executive vice president, Target. “Working with the team at ABC has been invigorating. We’re confident the November 11 episode of ‘Revenge’ will blow our guests away and, much like our collection with Neiman Marcus, provide an unforgettable element of surprise this holiday season.”
Target® Corp. (NYSE: TGT) and Neiman Marcus unveiled their unprecedented holiday collection featuring 24 of America’s preeminent designers — all members of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) — in New York. The collection will be available December 1 at all Target and Neiman Marcus stores, as well as online at Target.com and NeimanMarcus.com. In recognition of the 24 designers who created products for the holiday collection, Target and Neiman Marcus are donating a total of $1 million to the CFDA.
