Haunting of Hill House Social Campaign
Netflix Originals don't play by traditional genre rules. So when it came time to launch The Haunting of Hill House, their new horror original series, they needed a campaign that clearly communicated that they were here to scare... but in a totally different way from everything else telling terrifying stories.
Altered Carbon Social Campaign
Netflix came to us with a challenge: launch our most expensive (and confusing) series to date in a way that would get the world talking. Meet Altered Carbon, a dystopian science fiction cyberpunk crime drama where a legendary soldier is brought back to life 350 years in the future and is hired to solve a murder by the man who was killed but isn't …
BoJack Horseman Season 5 Social Campaign
For Season 5 of the greatest show that's ever been made on any network, we propelled the conversation around the greatest star Netflix has ever hired to new heights. And with BoJack Horseman finding himself in a whole new set of Hollywoo shenanigans, we knew that extending the story of the show onto social would get fans talking.Our campaign was r…
TBS: Final Space: Facebook Live - Cards with Gary
TBS's Final Space is a serialized intergalactic space saga about an astronaut named Gary, his friends, and his adorable, planet-destroying friend, Mooncake. Gary is overly excited to make new connections, true friends, and play cards with someone… ANYONE. Entertainment fans, especially Millennials and Gen Z, are just as eager to get closer to the …
The Purge: Digital Campaign
In 2018, USA Network launched THE PURGE, a TV series based on the hit movie franchise from Blumhouse. The series imagines a world in which all crime—even murder—is legal for one night every year.

IFC tasked GLOW with positioning their network as an authority in the off-beat comedy space on social. In order to make that happen, we needed to transform the IFC social accounts from content promoters to content producers.By diving into the wealth of IFC's original series and licensed movie content, we created uniquely eccentric online commentary to help …
Legion Season 2 Social Campaign
Presenting an artful, yet mystifying campaign and forcing users to question the characters' reality became a core mission of Legion's Season 2 promotional campaign. Social assets altered reality through the use of optical illusions, mind bending visuals and more. Each piece of creative took our users further down the rabbit hole and encouraged exploration.
Live PD - Social Campaign
We were engaged specifically to generate content that would keep conversations going on their social channels on the days the show wasn't on-air. We knew going in that we had a very large and rabid fan base that loved to discuss the show. That made our goals simple. We wanted to provide the fans with content that would entertain and inform with the p…

Queer Eye, seemingly overnight, captured the hearts of millions and sparked a movement of self-love and compassion across the globe.

We aimed to raise awareness and generate conversation around Bruce…
Wild 'N Out
Prior to Season 10 of Wild 'N Out, there wasn't much strategy surrounding its social presence. However, after some quick analysis, we realized that with a little push and focus, Wild 'N Out could become an internet phenomenon. Our objective was simple – increase social following and engagement across the board to make WNO an internet sensation and in turn u…
