Focus Features, Nissan and Quiznos have signed deals for customized promotions that will support Bochco’s legal drama Raising the Bar, which bows commercial-free on Labor Day at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).

The series second installment on Sept. 8 will feature an extended look at Focus Features’ Burn After Reading, Joel and Ethan Coen’s new comedy thriller, starring George Clooney, John Malkovich and Brad Pitt. TNT will drive awareness for a special look at the new movie through TNT tune-ins the week leading up to the series’ second episode and in advance of the film’s Sept. 12 release.

In addition to sponsored on-air support, including branded tune-ins, spots driving viewers to, billboards and lower third in-show marketing messaging, TNT will also create a custom spot to run on TNT that aligns the Altima’s brand with a theme from the series.

Additionally, Nissan will be the exclusive sponsor of the Raising The Bar section on, including sneak peek content featured on the site leading into the Sept. 1 premiere. Nissan will also sponsor a sweepstakes at offering one individual the opportunity to win a grand prize trip to New York.
