We’ve seen networks premiering shows via apps before their traditional TV debuts, and now Esquire Network is hoping to get a lot of “likes” as it premieres “Lucky Bastards” on Facebook before its TV premiere tomorrow at 10pmET.
The premiere episode of the show, which follows the true story of six male entrepreneurs living it up in New York City, is up on Facebook now.
“We know that Esquire Network’s audience consumes entertainment content across multiple platforms throughout their day,” Deena Stern, SVP for Marketing & Digital at Esquire Network, tells Lost Remote. “And we think that ‘Lucky Bastards’ is filled with buzz worthy, water-cooler and social media-worthy moments, so we offered the premiere episode to our Facebook fans prior to its April 16 television premiere.”
The network broke up the series premiere into three parts for Facebook users to watch.
- Seinfeld Participates in Facebook Q&A to Promote 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee'
- Nielsen, Facebook to Partner on Tracking Users' TV-Viewing Habits
- 'Dateline' Facebook Contest Winner Goes Behind the Scenes in NYC
