[via press release from NBC]

NBC AND BLOOMINGDALE'S TEAM UP TO SHOWCASE NEW SERIES AND FALL FASHIONS IN UNPRECEDENTED PARTNERSHIP

Multi-faceted Partnership Includes Integration in Bloomingdale's Catalogs, On-line, Interactive In-store Red-carpet Digital Experience, as well as Prominent Windows and Events in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago for New NBC Series

Shoppers Have the Opportunity to Win a Walk-on Role on NBC's New Drama "The Playboy Club," a Bloomingdale's Shopping Spree and an On-set Meet-and-Greet with Stars of NBC's New Fall Lineup

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - August 10, 2011 - NBC has joined with national retailer Bloomingdale's to create a unique and engaging partnership in September that invites consumers to "look the part and be the part," spotlighting several new fall series and the Bloomingdale's fashion brands. The venture involves NBC's new shows and talent inclusion in Bloomingdale's glossy fall catalogs for women, men and home, an in-store interactive digital experience that allows shoppers to walk the red carpet and, using cutting edge technology, download and be photographed with NBC new series stars.

The partnership will also give in-store and online shoppers a chance to enter a special sweepstakes that will award prizes including a walk-on role in NBC's new show "The Playboy Club," a $5,000 shopping spree, a trip to Los Angeles for a set visit, a meet-and-greet with stars of a new fall show or multiple $100 Bloomingdale's gift cards.

"We are thrilled to be in partnership with Bloomingdale's. The combination of NBC's new fall slate of programming with Bloomingdale's powerful brand and multiple touch points creates a very engaging consumer experience," said Tim Farish, Senior Vice President, Marketing, NBC Entertainment. "Our businesses align during this period, so the notion of Fall Fashion, Fall TV is perfect for us both."

"We enjoy giving our customers exclusive access and a first look at newness at all times," said Frank Berman, senior vice president of marketing. "Partnering with NBC has allowed us to create a diverse multichannel campaign that enlivens our customers shopping experience in an entertaining and engaging way."

Whether in-store or online, the partnership will allow the consumer to have access and interact with must-have fall fashions and some of the hottest new shows on NBC this fall, including "The Playboy Club," starring Eddie Cibrian and Amber Heard; "Up All Night," starring Christina Applegate, Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph; "Free Agents," starring Hank Azaria and Kathryn Hahn; "Whitney," starring Whitney Cummings and "Prime Suspect," starring Maria Bello.

The Bloomingdale's fall catalogs will be a vital component of the campaign, as NBC shows will be integrated into Bloomingdale's fashion narrative with added input from series stars. The catalogs include the annual Hot Book � a women's catalog that will feature a section shot at the iconic 30 Rock in New York City and includes insights on how the new series stars "look the part." Stars showcased include Azaria ("Free Agents"), Bello ("Prime Suspect"), Applegate ("Up All Night") and Cummings ("Whitney). Bloomingdale's will also include NBC in its "Best of Men's" catalog featuring Cibrian on the cover and Heard in an unprecedented center spread -- both shot by celebrity photographer Peggy Sirota. An entire section of the catalog was also shot at The Playboy Club in Las Vegas.

Taking further inspiration from NBC's new fall shows, the storefront windows in the most highly visible stores will feature elaborate sets that meld NBC's shows with fall fashion. These include: New York on 59th Street featuring "Prime Suspect," "Up All Night," "Whitney" and "The Playboy Club." Likewise, the Chicago store windows, which are walking distance from the original Playboy Club, will replicate the exterior of the original club.

As part of the ongoing collaboration across all 39 stores nationwide, consumers will have the opportunity to participate in a cutting-edge, augmented reality opportunity. From September 8-25, shoppers will be invited to walk the red carpet and via an application called "Goldrun," they will be able to download characters from the NBC shows to their Ipad2, Iphone3G and Iphone4 and snap a photo with them. Upon participation, they will be entered to win a sweepstakes featuring 25 random $100 gift cards a day. They will also be entered to win a grand prize walk-on role in "The Playboy Club," a $5,000 Bloomingdale's shopping spree or a first prize trip to Los Angeles for a set visit to one of NBC's new fall shows including a cast meet-and-greet.

In addition, online on NBC and Bloomingdale's Facebook pages (http://www.facebook.com/NBC) (http://www.facebook.com/Bloomingdales) fans will have the opportunity to take part in incentivize sampling. NBC will produce custom vignettes integrating interviews with the shows stars regarding how fashion plays a role in their character and packaged with behind the scenes footage highlighting the fashion/style in their show. Visitors can enter into the same in-store sweepstakes contest by watching these custom show samplers online.

To kick off the campaign and partnership, on September 8th, during Fashion Night Out, NBC and Bloomingdale's will co-host consumer and press facing activations featuring talent appearances and activities related to NBC new fall series.

"The NBC Fall Primetime Preview" show will feature Cummings in an exhilarating segment in Bloomingdale's Santa Monica store that serves as the finale for the 30-minute show. Other special events include Fashion's Night Out on September 8 in New York, Chicago and Century City Bloomingdale's stores as well as Men's VIP suiting events in top stores themed around "The Playboy Club."
