CTV has partnered with Disney to promote its big-budget music reality series The Launch and augmented the run with a seventh episode dubbed Just Launched that goes behind the scenes with additional content.
Various film tagged in promos for the series continue until the broadcast premieres Wednesday the 10th at 9 pm ET/PM on the Bell flagship channel. Disney will use both co-branded promos and brand sell spots to link to the series. Bell Media will produce three custom 90-second promos featuring an emerging artist from the show introducing an upcoming film along with the trailer. Each promo focuses on a different Disney or Marvel film. Disney will also run 30-second brand sell spots in the show.
The Mouse will also work with emerging artists from The Launch to promote various films, including Vivian Hicks for Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time, The Static Shift for Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, and Jayd Ink for Marvel’s Black Panther.
Created for markets around the world, in each close-ended, hour-long episode of the music reality show, five unsigned emerging artists audition for the opportunity to record and perform a new original song, mentored by a panel of internationally renowned music acts and backroom power brokers.
