Exclusive opportunity to sponsor the brand new sitcom 'Gates'

Provided by Sky Media
Exclusive opportunity to sponsor new Sky1 sitcom, Gates.

Tell us about the Opportunity / What is it?

GATES, on Sky 1 HD, is an ensemble comedy headed by Sue Johnston (The Royle Family, Waking The Dead), Tom Ellis (Miranda, Merlin) and Joanna Page (Gavin and Stacey, Love Actually) set in the all too familiar chaos of the school gates. Essentially a character comedy, but with a nod to those sketch-like moments of madness which can only ever happen in the playground, GATES casts an eye on how relationships with parents formed during fifteen minutes of a school drop off and pick up can so easily take over your life.

What is the Marketing Objective?

Create a unique association with great programming on Sky1 HD.

How does it work?

Sponsorship shall include opening credits of 15 seconds, 2 breaks bumpers of 5 seconds per centre break (there are normally 3 centre breaks per 1hour show) and a closing credit of 15 seconds. Gates is due to air in January 2012, scheduled to include 6x30 minute episodes to be aired at peak time, Plus repeats on Sky 1 & Sky 2 and any showings on Sky Anytime & Sky Go.
