Summer TV show billboards around L.A. in July 2015...

The weather may be unpredictable of late in L.A. (hot, humid, cloudy, raining), but one thing is constant, the fact that there's always a fantastic assortment of new and returning TV show billboards entertaining the city skyline. Here's a selection of the best television outdoor ads that caught my eye in July 2015.

TV billboards
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt 2015 Emmy billboard
Congratulations to freshman comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt for securing five Emmy nominations, including one for Best Comedy and another for Tituss Burgess, as Kimmy's dramatic New York roommate, 'Titus Andromendon' (in the lookalike Iron Man costume above). I love this bubbly ad creative for the Netflix series, it's just so much fun and sums up the feel of the show and its titular character.
Brooklyn Nine Nine 2015 Emmy billboard
The Emmy consideration billboards have all but disappeared this late in the month, but there were still some to be spotted at the beginning of July, like this Brooklyn Nine-Nine ad creative which helped earn the show a nomination for Andre Braugher.

If you like these two examples, be sure to also check out all these other Emmy consideration billboards for 2015

Another weird and wacky billboard this month was this quirky creative for IFC's fourth season of Comedy Bang! Bang! How can you not love an ad creative stuffed with rainbows, seesaws, astronauts and an assortment of animals.
