UNTITLED JERSEY CITY PROJECT"

"Untitled Jersey City Project" centers on a troubled construction project in Jersey City, a town where corruption is a fact of life, no matter how many gleaming buildings face the waterfront. Our hero is Frank George, a Jersey City native who's made good. Frank and his partner are the architects behind the project. Everyone, from local politicians to foreign investors, from the unions to the cops, has something to gain and something to lose...including their lives.

The story will be told in 8 two-minute episodes, each designed to feel like a fragment, acting as a tease to a larger story that ends with a cliffhanger. Consumers will be driven from one media platform to another to watch, comment and interact.

The series launched on Friday with a unique set of sequential trailers running on over 27,000 movie screens across the country. The trailers also ran during last night's Emmy Awards pre-show and live primetime broadcast on Fox.

This Sunday September 25th, the two-minute episodes will begin airing during FX Network's Sunday Night Movie franchise and will roll out over the next four weeks.

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has issued an apology for the way the company handled a recent price increase, and he announced that the company's DVD-rental and streaming-video businesses will be run as separate units.

Netflix shares have fallen by nearly half in the wake of its new pricing structure, which increased fees for subscribing to both services by 60%.

Newspaper publishers get creative in effort to lift revenues

Forty newspapers have teamed up with The Associated Press to launch a mobile-coupon initiative that seeks to leverage traditional classified and direct-marketing platforms with the power of digital publishing.

Lowe's plans to roll out home-improvement app

A major campaign for Lowe's via BBDO sets the stage for an offering called My Lowe's, a customizable application that allows customers ready access to records of past purchases, owner's manuals and warranties, as well as features that let customers keep track of material types, paint colors and other purchases to manage their home-improvement projects.

Tablets, not phones, make inroads into consumer video viewing

More than half of consumers surveyed say they spend more time watching video online than they did a year ago, although TV remains their main viewing medium, according to a PricewaterhouseCoopers study. And tablets may be the reason for growing online acceptance, as respondents described the devices as a "wholly different mobile viewing experience" from that available on smartphones. In fact, fewer than one in four respondents said they liked phones for watching premium video.
