TV billboards turning heads in the Summer skies of L.A. in June 2016...

With so many television shows and content vying for your attention across so many different platforms - conventional TV, streaming services and online, there are more billboards than ever filling the skies wanting you to watch their programs. Here's a cool collection of TV billboards trying to turn heads in L.A. throughout June 2016.

TV billboards
Dating Naked season 3 Suns out Buns out billboard
The sun's out, the temperatures are soaring and it's time for a third season of the reality dating show which allows you to see all of your prospective mate, Dating Naked.
Barely Famous season 2 billboard
Another VH1 ad using hot pink to stand out is this second season billboard for faux reality series Barely Famous, with the clueless 'Foster' sisters doing everything they can to get noticed in Hollywoodland.
Powers season 2 billboard
Over at the Playstation Store the sophomore season of superhero detective show Powers is streaming, proving that the demand for comic book adaptations hasn't subsided yet.
Lady Dynamite series premiere billboard
Over on Netflix funny lady Maria Bamford is starring in her own comedy series, as a fictionalized version of herself, in Lady Dynamite. I love this crazy, retro ad creative for the series launch.
Orange is the New Black season 4 pride flag billboard
All around the world people are celebrating LGBT Pride month and this June Netflix helped festivities by showing their support for L.A.'s Pride Parade with this rainbow flag for the fourth season of their women's prison dramedy, Orange is the New Black, which has many compelling LGBT characters and storylines.

If you're a fan of the show (I'm currently half way through the fourth season), be sure to also check out all these other Orange is the New Black TV billboards.
Devious Maids season 4 billboard
Those Devious Maids are back for a fourth season of murder, secrets and mayhem on Lifetime with this striking ad creative.
Hollywood Divas season 3 billboard
The Hollywood Divas are back for a third reality TV season of black actresses trying to navigate the ups and downs of their careers, family and relationships in LA LA Land.
Odd Mom Out season 2 billboard
Jill Kargman returns as a fictionalized version of herself for the sophomore season of Odd Mom Out, trying to survive amongst the other privileged mothers of New York's Upper East Side.
Still the King series premiere billboard
Over on on the Country Music TV cable channel (which recently rescued Nashville for another season), Billy Ray Cyrus is Still the King in a comedy about him being one of the best Elvis impersonators in the country.
American Gothic series premiere billboard
The Summer always brings new season shows to enjoy, like the new CBS murder mystery thriller American Gothic, about a wealthy Bostonian family that discovers one of their own may be a longtime serial killer.
BrainDead series premiere billboard
Plus CBS is also offering viewers new political comedy from the writers of The Good Wife, BrainDead, where U.S. Congressmen have been taken over by aliens (isn't that what's really happened though, that's the only way to explain these dark times?).
Dead of Summer series premiere billboard
Whilst over on Freeform (formerly known as ABC Family), Dead of Summer is a new supernatural horror slasher series set at a Midwest Summer Camp.
Kingdom season 2 part 2 billboard
Mixed Martial Arts drama Kingdom returns for the second half of its sophomore season and I spied this additional kick-ass ad creative over in Hollywood & Highland.
Bloodline season 2 billboard
I just finished watching the second season of Netflix's Bloodline and even though it's hardly a laugh a minute, the family murder drama has managed to stay as compelling as the gripping first season. I hope that Kyle Chandler's real-life sibling doesn't take offense to this sophomore season billboard professing that "I killed my brother" though.
Queen of the South series premiere billboard
Alice Braga stars in Queen of the South this month, an adaptation of a Spanish-language Telemundo mini-series, where she plays the 'Queenpin' of a drug cartel out for revenge against her lover's killers. I love these striking ads for the new show, which have different background designs behind her throne.
Ray Donovan season 4 billboard
Ray Donovan is back for a fourth season as Hollywood's 'fixer' to the stars and this time around he discovers that dark secrets don't stay buried forever.
Roadies series premiere billboard
Meanwhile Showtime also has a freshman drama coming to the small screen, Roadies, shining a spotlight on the crew that help put together the concerts of touring rock groups. Although Luke Wilson and these pretty young things look far too glamourous to get their hands dirty if you ask me.
Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll season 2 billboard
Also in the same musical realm, FX's dysfunctional rock band comedy Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll is back for an encore second season with Denis Leary as the aging rocker.
Tyrant season 3 billboard
As these two ad creatives for FX demonstrate, they always have really imaginative season promo billboards, from the above punky rock 'n' roll design to this intriguing Middle Eastern-influenced billboard for the third season of Tyrant.
Another Period season 2 billboard
Another Period steps back in time over on Comedy Central for a sophomore season of spoiled, shameless and stupid antics from the shamelessly rich 'Bellacourt' family.
Power season 3 Missing teaser billboard
And Starz teases the third season of its drug lord drama Power with this giant-sized 'missing' ad creative on the side of the Sofitel Hotel.
Hidden America series premiere billboard
Comedian Jonah Ray discovers Hidden America in his new fake parody travel show where he visits to cities like Chicago, Seattle, New Orleans, Austin and more.
American West series premiere billboard
And over on AMC, even though their railroad Western drama Hell on wheels is coming to an end, they are revisiting that time period with this new limited series docu-drama, The American West, to explore the aftermath of the Civil War in the U.S.
Vice Principals series premiere billboard
HBO has been filling the skies this month with these special extension cut-out billboards for their new dark teacher comedy, Vice Principals, starring Danny McBride and Walton Coggins as competing V.P.s at the same high school.
The Night Of series premiere billboard
This Summer the premium cable channel also has the murder mystery mini-series, The Night Of, to entertain viewers, where a young man wakes up after a night of wild partying to discover a woman stabbed to death in his bed.
Any Given Wednesday Bill Simmons billboard
They were also promoting Bill Simmons new sports commentary series Any Given Wednesday in a big way this month, with super-sized and standard billboards along the heavily trafficked Sunset Strip.
Any Given Wednesday HBO series premiere billboard
In the world of reality television, the Wahlbergs were back for a sixth season of fly-on-the-wall family drama in Wahlburgers.
Wahlburgers season 6 billboard
YouTube series Decker finds new life on Adult Swim this month with Decker: Unclassified, parodying international espionage.
Decker Unclassified Adult Swim billboard
And that's followed by the fourth season of 'Dr. Steve Brule' aka John C. Reilly continuing to Check it Out in his awkward and naive examination of the world around us.

Netflix keeps the comedy coming with another standup special this month, this time from Bo Burnham.

And YouTube Red continues to shine a spotlight on the shows on its new paid-for subscription channel, like MatPat's Game Lab series.

Plus Joey Graceffa invites ten YouTubers to Escape the Night in a 1920s themed murder mystery party in his new series.
Escape the Night YouTube Red series billboard
You really can't escape from all the TV shows trying to grab your attention, and that's not even counting all the 2016 Emmy consideration billboards also competing for space in the city skyline this month.

Stay tuned in the days to come for more billboard snapshots from around this sprawling city and in the meantime you can also compare this collection to last June's TV billboards.
