Dinner & a Movie and Kraft Kick Off the Summer with Customized Marketing Promotion

Sponsorship Featured on Five Select Nights July 2-Aug. 13

TBS, television�s �very funny� network, is partnering with Kraft Foods for a unique, customized sponsorship within the long-running hosted movie showcase DINNER & A MOVIE. Starting Saturday, July 2 and running for five select nights until Saturday, Aug. 13, DINNER & A MOVIE Summer Vacation presented by Kraft Foods will expose viewers to a collection of Kraft food products through customized vignettes and on-air graphics. For the first time ever on DINNER & A MOVIE, these exclusive Kraft episodes will receive maximum promotion across custom designed summertime on-air vignettes and graphics, spotlighting a specific product in each episode and further expanding consumer exposure during sponsored tune-in graphics one week out.

This sponsorship is like nothing else ever created for DINNER & A MOVIE. Branded, customized vignettes running as part of the show�s content will feature humorous interaction between one of the show�s hosts and that night�s featured Kraft product. On Friday, July 29, during a break from the movie The Wedding Planner, DINNER & A MOVIE host Paul Gilmartin, will share with the viewers his day at the beach with his girlfriend, �Crystal.� This specific customized segment showcases the summertime beverage, Crystal Light�. All five Kraft-sponsored vignettes will take place in a similar summer setting, and each product will also receive on-air exposure throughout the duration of the episode.

A unique component introduced in this promotion is a customized tune-in graphic incorporated into the previous week�s DINNER & A MOVIE episode. At the close of the movie airing one week out, a custom-designed DINNER & A MOVIE and Kraft co-branded graphic will promote Kraft�s product the following week, alongside the featured film. This is the first time a partner has received exposure for a brand outside of the sponsored episode.

Airdates for the five customized DINNER & A MOVIE and Kraft branded episodes are as follows:

� July 2: Addams Family Values, starring Anjelica Huston and Raul Julia, featuring Ritz� Chips

� July 15: Tommy Boy, starring Chris Farley and David Spade, featuring Oscar Mayer� hot dogs

� July 29: The Wedding Planner, starring Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey, featuring Crystal Light�

� Aug. 6: Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, starring Angelina Jolie, featuring A.1.� Steak Sauce

� Aug. 13: The Whole Nine Yards, starring Bruce Willis and Matthew Perry, featuring Jell-O� Sundae Toppers

�Now in its 11th season, DINNER & A MOVIE continues to provide new and exciting sponsorship opportunities to our clients,� said Linda Yaccarino, executive vice president, Turner Entertainment Ad Sales and Marketing. �We are very pleased to have a returning sponsor like Kraft as our partner for such a customized outreach campaign.�

Since 1995, DINNER & A MOVIE has delighted movie and cooking fans with its unique combination of top-notch Hollywood entertainment and mouth-watering recipes. During each week�s movie, host Paul Gilmartin and chef Claud Mann give step-by-step recipes for dishes while watching along and providing biting commentary on the movies.
