Preview NBC's New Comedy A to Z Before Premiere; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of August 18, 2014)

A to Z

NBC will offer a digital-only premiere with the launch of its new Thursday night comedy A to Z from Warner Bros. Television today, seven weeks before its linear launch in October. In a first of its kind, NBC is partnering with Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, which reaches 245 million listeners each month, to premiere the pilot across Clear Channel's vast network of digital properties. The first-of-its-kind campaign will include strong local and national integration, airing the A to Z pilot digitally on iHeartRadio - everywhere it is available - providing promotional support across contemporary hits radio stations both on-air and on their websites, mobile sites and social networks throughout the country; and featuring on-air discussions with Clear Channel's nationally syndicated top on-air personality Ryan Seacrest to drive awareness for the digital screening availability.

In addition to Clear Channel's digital properties and apps, the A to Z pilot will also be available on the NBC app, NBC.com, Hulu, Xfinity, the NBC owned and affiliate station websites and cable, satellite and telco providers On Demand and online services. The heartfelt A to Z pilot premiered digitally yesterday (exactly halfway on the calendar until Valentine's Day) with a version that is 90 seconds longer than the version that will premiere on NBC Thursday, Oct. 2 at 9:30pm ET/PT. Fans can connect on social with the official hashtag for the digital premiere #iHeartAtoZ. A to Z tells the story of Andrew (Ben Feldman, The Mindy Project) and Zelda (Cristin Milioti, How I Met Your Mother) - a pair that almost wasn't - and all that happened from the day they met. Henry Zebrowski (Best Week Ever), Lenora Crichlow (Being Human) and Christina Kirk (Girls) also star, with Katey Sagal (Sons of Anarchy, Married...with Children) as the Narrator.
