§ Don MacPherson looks at how a reality show is promoting the comic drawn by a cast member, namely Nick Simmons, son of Gene:
So the broadcast announcement about Incarnate isn’t telling us anything new, but what’s of interest is how it’s being promoted. A&E has set up a mini-site on its own online home for Nick Simmons specifically to promote Incarnate. Now, A&E may not be one of the big American networks, but it’s no slouch in the world of broadcast entertainment either. Furthermore, Family Jewels is syndicated, so it has a longer reach than just the A&E crowd.The question is, though: will a de facto ad on primetime TV move comics? Will it drive non-comics buyers to seek out Nick’s comic and perhaps others if they enjoy the experience?
