This July, TNT will unveil an action-packed night of programming with marketing partner The Weinstein Company's Inglourious Basterds along for the ride as sponsor for DARK BLUE.

TNT will feature both a 90-second extended trailer and a 30-second spot featuring a select scene from the film within the premiere episode. In addition, custom co-branded tune-in spots featuring clips from the film were created to promote Ingluorious Basterds out in theatres Aug. 21 and DARK BLUE premiering on Jul. 15. Inglourious Basterds is written and directed by Quentin Tarantino.

"We are thrilled to be a presenting sponsor of the Dark Blue premiere," said Francois Martin, senior vice president, marketing, The Weinstein Company & Dimension Films. "TNT's original programming is a great environment to launch the Inglourious Basterds campaign."
