9 new trailers you should watch this week
See the original posting on The Verge
Welcome to the annual biggest week in trailers, aka TV upfronts week. This is the week when TV networks present glimpses of their new shows to advertisers, trying to woo commitments ahead of the shows debuts later this year. Naturally, those trailers also end up online.
I love watching all the upfront trailers because theyre just incredibly awkward and strange most of the time. At this point, the shows have each only filmed a pilot episode, and so a trailer for them is basically a three minute tour through a single 20-or-so minute episode of TV. No surprise, a lot of them are pretty bad, but there are always a few gems.
