Day 16: The Neon Man (Slash Coleman & PBS): More Personal Connection

So, I talked with Elli Morris today. The person in charge of selling the three 15 second underwriting spots for the PBS special. She said she talked with a company in the bereavement business that had two questions. 

1) Could 1 company purchase all three spots? 

2) Would the company logo appear on the DVD and could promotional copies be sent to the company?

This was the answer I found out. One company could purchase all 3 commercial spots, but would only  get 15 seconds worth of air time. I guess PBS wants to push the commercial idea, but doesn't want to push it over the top. Money always talks, so I inquired just how much money it would take to purchase all of the 45 seconds. Answer? 2.5 million dollars for 45 seconds at the end of a PBS special. Great Gatsby!
