USA Creates Special VOD Ads Starring Characters From the Show You’re Watching

Playing House VOD

All summer long, networks have been devising unique methods of presenting their series to help audiences more easily consume content while helping advertisers reach viewers. Tonight, USA rolls out one of the season’s most ambitious moves yet.

As the comedy Playing House returns for its second season tonight at 10 p.m. ET/PT, USA is debuting a new windowing structure in which viewers can watch the following week’s episode on video on demand services immediately after the broadcast. The VOD episodes, exclusively sponsored by Toyota, Samsung and Comcast (which owns USA parent NBCUniversal), include custom-created spots from those three brands.

NBCUniversal worked with the three advertisers, alongside Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham, Playing House’s co-creators and stars.

Adweek has the exclusive first look at the spots from Toyota and Comcast. A 60-second version will air alongside one for Samsung in tonight’s premiere on USA; the full-length versions will appear during VOD playback of the episodes.

In the Toyota spot, Emma (St. Clair) and Maggie (Parham) take a drive in Emma’s Camry (or as she calls it, “Cams”), and argue about the car’s voice recognition features. (Maggie takes exception to Emma calling the car “kind of like the best friend I ever had.”)
