November's cool TV billboards entertaining L.A.'s skyline...

There never seems to be a quiet month for TV show billboards these days, especially in the brave new world of digital streaming. Here's a cool collection of outdoor ads for new series, returning favourites and the start of the awards season consideration frenzy around Los Angeles in November 2015 (sorry they're delayed, Thanksgiving got in the way this month).

TV billboards
Mr Robot For your consideration billboard
First up is this amended season one billboard for USA Network's Summer hit series, Mr. Robot, who are kicking of their awards consideration campaign early.

If you're a fan of the conspiracy drama, be sure to check out all these other Mr. Robot series launch billboards from earlier this year.
Empire season 2 billboard
Fox's hit R&B musical drama Empire came back on screens at the end of September, but it's still getting some ad support in the skies of L.A., with a black background replacing the fierce season two Empire billboards with the white background design.
Transparent season 2 billboard
Amazon's groundbreaking Emmy-winning transgender drama Transparent is back for a sophomore outing this December and 'Maura' and her dysfunctional family are all back, transitioning through their own stages in life.
Jessica Jones series premiere billboard
One of my favourite shows of recent times is Netflix's adaptation of Marvel's Jessica Jones character (played wonderfully by Krysten Ritter), which exists in the same Marvel cinematic universe, but in the grittier New York streets that the Daredevil series also called home. It's such a brilliant and faithful translation of comic book to small screen, and has really made me understand the super-powered private investigator's flaws and motivations more.
Man in the High Castle series premiere billboard
Another show that is next on my watch-list is Amazon's ambitious adaptation of Philip K. Dick's original 60s story, which imagined a world where the Axis powers of the Nazis and the Japanese won WWII.

If you like this provocative saluting Statue of Liberty, be sure to also check out all these other billboards for The Man in the High Castle.
Into the Badlands series premiere billboard
Another series bringing something interesting to TV this past month was AMC's new martial arts spectacular, Into the Badlands. This striking red series launch billboard certainly stood out in the skies of L.A. this month.
Master of None series premiere billboard
For a relative newcomer in the world of original programming, Netflix continues to bring audiences some great new shows, like Aziz Ansari's new dramedy based in part on his life experiences, Master of None. I love the trippy quality of this billboard design and the small special extension at the top helps it stand out further.
Chicago Med series premiere billboard
NBC debuted the latest addition to their Chicago family of dramas in November, with Chicago Med joining Fire and P.D. in their shared television universe. I think they should do a Chicago Animal Rescue next.
Giant Getting On season 3 billboard
Speaking of the world of medicine, and HBO's Getting On was back for a third and final season of comedy capers caring for the elderly.
The Royals season 2 billboard
Another show getting the super-sized treatment along the Sunset Strip was The Royals, back for more soapy high society drama on E!
Angel from Hell series premiere billboard
Some billboards which appeared, then promptly disappeared, this month were for Jane Lynch's new comedy, Angel from Hell, where she stars as a drunken guardian angel (or potentially a stalker, depending on your point of view).

The show has been kept back for the New Year to give it more support and a midseason push, although it does makes you wonder if it's any good. I did like ad creative's parody of the cherubs in the famous Sistine Madonna painting though.
The XFiles TV miniseries billboard
Fox continues to resurrect some of its oldest successful properties, teasing the return of The X-Files for the New Year with this ominous 'Trust no one' Cigarette Smoking Man teaser. Let's hope people still believe the truth is out there.
Curse of Oak Island season 3 billboard
From one show about mysteries to another, and The Curse of Oak Island is back for a third season exploring what treasures (if any) and secrets lie buried beneath the Nova Scotian island.
Girlfriends Guide to Divorce season 2 billboard
Bravo's first original scripted series was back in the skies with this clever season two billboard for Girlfriends's Guide to Divorce. It's not as cheeky as the show's season one billboard, but 'screw your ex' is a great double-meaning tagline.
Bob David Netflix series billboard
W/ Bob and David was another of Netflix's new comedic offerings this month, with Better Call Saul's Bob Odenkirk and standup comedian David Cross serving up a new assortment of sketches.
TripTank season 2 billboard
Speaking of comedy and TripTank is getting its freak on for more animated shenanigans  in its second season on Comedy Central.
Mike Tyson Mysteries season 2 billboard
Whilst Mike Tyson returns in animated form for a sophomore season of mysteries over on Adult Swim.
Robot Chicken season 8 billboard
In addition two Adult Swim billboards left over from the previous month were for new offerings from Robot Chicken.
Robot Chicken DC Comics Special 3 billboard
The stop-motion animated comedy is back for an eighth season, plus their third DC Comics Special makes for fun viewing with an ice-cream date for Superman and Batman.
Marc Maron More Later Epix comedy billboard
Best known for their movie offering, it looks like Epix wants into the original content arena and is trying its hand with standup comedy courtesy of Marc Maron.
Anthony Jeselnik Thoughts and Prayers billboard
Meanwhile Netflix is an old hand at showcasing standup comedians, with Anthony Jeselnik and John Mulaney being two of their recent comedy special offerings.
John Mulaney Comeback Kid special billboard
Ellen DeGeneres was momentarily back along the Sunset Strip for the thirteenth season of her daytime talkshow, sharing a billboard with the NBC weekday news crew.
Ellen NBC news billboard
And Hulu has been spending big of late to highlight both its TV and movie offerings, including its own new original shows like Casual.
Hulu come TV with us billboard
And finally, these Holiday Baking Championship billboards from the Food Network have been making Los Angelenos feel festive this past month, although personally I've been bingeing on The Great British Bake Off on Netflix to get me in the holiday baking spirit.
Holiday Baking Championship billboard
As you can see there were more than enough new television show billboards filling L.A.'s skies this month.

Be sure to compare these to what TV billboards were around last November and stay tuned for a roundup of all the lifestyle billboards filling the city skyline these past few weeks.

See you soon...
