TNT and the Dodge Dealers Join Forces for the Action-Packed New Drama Series WANTED, Premiering July 31

Exclusive Integrated Marketing Promotion Showcases the All-New 2006 Dodge Charger and Dakota

Turner Entertainment Ad Sales and Marketing, recognized for developing television�s most innovative promotions, has created an extensive sponsorship campaign for the Dodge Dealers, spotlighting one of America�s best-known brands and their all-new 2006 Dodge Charger and Dodge Dakota during TNT�s action-packed crime thriller WANTED. Through natural product integration, broadband features and widespread marketing outreach, both Dodge vehicles will receive national exposure throughout the show�s 12-episode season. This highly anticipated series that chronicles the lives of an elite team of crime fighters is scheduled to air on TNT Sundays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), starting July 31.

Showcased in at least six episodes of WANTED, the all-new 2006 Dodge Charger receives primary exposure and works seamlessly into the storyline that unfolds in this dramatic series. The second integrated Dodge vehicle, the 2006 Dakota, is driven by the lead character, team leader Lt. Conrad Rose, played by Gary Cole.

Dodge awareness is further promoted through WANTED on-air, online, print and outdoor marketing components. On-air presence includes WANTED tune-ins, WANTED and Dodge co-branded advertisements and on-air billboards promoting the series. WANTED Broadband sponsored by Dodge is available through the WANTED micro site at TNT.tv. This online destination serves as a complement to the series and features such broadband components as the WANTED trailer, behind-the-scenes clips and a virtual comic book. Links to Dodge�s company home page are also available through this site. National print campaigns that feature Dodge brand include Entertainment Weekly and USA Today. The partnership will also be brought to life on the WANTED billboard in New York City�s Time Square.

�We developed a unique sponsorship campaign for Dodge that communicates their brand messaging for the all-new Charger and Dakota to TNT viewers and potential consumers throughout multiple platforms,� said Linda Yaccarino, executive vice president, Turner Entertainment Ad Sales and Marketing. �TNT delivers countless opportunities for our sales partners to become involved in award-caliber programming that speaks to viewer emotions. WANTED is no exception, and we are very pleased to have Dodge on board sponsoring this action-packed original drama series.�
