New and returning TV show billboards around L.A. in July 2014...

Even over the quieter Summer months the skies of L.A. are still crammed with lots of fantastic ad creatives for the latest television shows and returning series, and for me this ever-changing tapestry makes for exciting times every month. Here's the latest visions in vinyl capturing my imagination from the world of TV this July.

TV billboards
The Knick giant billboard Sunset Strip
First up is this super-sized billboard for Clive Owen's new period medical drama, The Knick, exploring the birth of surgery at the turn of the 20th century in New York City.
Manhattan atomic bomb billboard
Next up is another historical drama, this one surrounding the secret creation of the deadly Atomic bomb. if you like this fun special extension creative, be sure to check out these other billboard creatives for Manhattan at my Daily Billboard blog.
Hell on Wheels season 4 billboard
Over on AMC the tracks of the Transcontinental railway keeping rolling onwards and Hell on Wheels returns for a fourth season of wild adventures in the Old West.
Drunk History season 2 billboard
Speaking of history, this one of the more intoxicated kind, I love this blurry billboard for the second season of Drunk History which features an out of focus George Washington, the first President of the United States.

For the show's launch last year, Comedy Central also had an inspired billboard parody of President Richard Nixon for the first season of Drunk History, so be sure to take a look if you want a laugh.
Nathan For You season 2 billboard
Talking of laughs and Canadian comedian Nathan Fielder was back in the skies above the Sunset Strip for the sophomore season of Nathan for You, where he dispenses his own unique brand of advice to small business owners.
Finding Carter milk carton MTV billboard
MTV's ad creative for its new child abduction drama Finding Carter was one of my favourites this month as it immediately sold the concept of the show with the missing child connotations on the side of the milk carton.
Legends series premiere billboard
Meanwhile Sean Bean returns to TV this Fall with a new spy series called Legends based on the book by Robert Littell, which is about a talented undercover CIA agent with many faces who begins to doubt  who he is.
The Divide series premiere billboard
Also it wouldn't be a new TV season without a new legal crime drama, which We TV provides with its first original scripted series, The Divide.
Rush series premiere billboard
Along with Clive Owen and Sean Bean, another British actor getting his own show this season is Tom Ellis in the new drama Rush, where he plays a doctor for hire by the rich and famous of the L.A. elite.
Satisfaction series premiere billboard
Another show debuting on the USA Network is Satisfaction about a married couple feeling the strain of their relationship, especially when the husband discovers his wife is using the services of a male escort, so he decides to try his hand at the same profession.
The Lottery Lifetime series premiere billboard
Over on Lifetime the future has become The Lottery, where infertility is a global problem until researchers find a way to fertilise 100 embryos and the U.S. President is advised to let the population try their luck at winning one of these coveted prizes.
Hemlock Grove season 2 billboard
Netflix's supernatural horror series returns for a second season with these spooky ad creatives, so if you're a fan of the show, be sure to check out all these Hemlock Grove season two billboards.
Conan O'Brien Sharktopus vs Pteracuda billboard
And speaking of the horror genre, here's a mock Emmy/Oscar/BAFTA consideration billboard for talk show host Conan O'Brien's part in the Syfy movie Sharktopus vs Pteracuda, which for those of you not in the know, is a real film.
Pawnography series premiere billboard
And finally, another outdoor ad making me smile this month was the billboard for the series debut of the new game show Pawnography, where sex isn't involved, but contestants try to 'get their hands on their junk' (which are rare prized possessions).

As you can see there's lots to be entertained and amused by in the city skyline this month from the world of TV.

Make sure you also check out July's Summer movie billboards and stylish fashion billboards, and come back soon for the round-up of this month's drinks, technology and lifestyle ads gracing the skies of L.A.
