TV billboards turning heads in the skies of L.A. in April 2015...

This month there were a whole host of returning, specials and rookie TV shows trying to get your attention in the skies of L.A. Here's a selection of the cool TV billboards that caught my eye in April 2015.

TV billboards

A.D. The Bible Continues 3D billboard
NBC is always one to follow TV trends, so after the success of many Biblical and religious dramas and movies, their new offering is A.D. The Bible Continues, a mini-series chronicling the events after the death of Jesus. They may not be very original with their programming, but at least they had this cool 3D billboard to promote the new series.
