An onslaught of new Fall TV billboards crowding L.A.'s skies in August 2016…

Every new TV season I get so excited when all the new shows start appearing in the city skies, I'm like a kid in a candy store. I've also shared the returning TV show billboards this August 2016, so now it's time to shine a spotlight on the rookie shows trying to capture your attention and a viable audience.

TV billboards
David Cross Making America great again billboard
I couldn't help but kick off things with this Netflix comedy special ripped-from-the-headlines, as standup comedian David Cross is 'Making America great again!', just like a certain orange-tinged, tiny-handed bigot we all know running for U.S. President this year is using as a campaign slogan.
America Divided docu-series billboard
On a similar subject, this year's presidential election has really shown the divisions within the U.S., exposing a real snakebite of hates and fears and inequalities, so there's never been a better time for a docu-series like America Divided.
Designated Survivor series premiere billboard
Keeping with he patriotic theme, and Kiefer Sutherland returns to the small screen this season with his new Designated Survivor conspiracy thriller, when a low-level cabinet member gets catapulted into the highest office in the land after a catastrophic event kills everyone else in line for the Presidency.
Get Down series premiere billboard
Netflix is constantly proving that they don't need traditional TV seasons to stream quality, innovative shows, like their exciting new 70s based drama chronicling the dawn of Hip Hop in the Bronx.
