Altering its brand
name so its graphic look reflects more TV-style programming, Sundance Channel now becomes Sundance TV, a network owned by AMC Networks.
Boosting its awareness and content for more original
programming, the brand makeover -- long associated with independent films -- starts Feb. 27 in conjunction with its new original series: “The Red Road.” Later in the year, the network will
air “The Honorable Woman” starring Maggie Gyllenhaal.
“SundanceTV aims to create television that is as remarkable as the best independent films, and this rebrand embodies
that position and confidence,” stated Monica Bloom, senior vice president of marketing for SundanceTV.
In the recent year, Sundance has boosted original programs such as “Top of
the Lake,” “Rectify” and “The Returned.”
Founded by Robert Redford, Sundance Channel started in 1996 as a premium movie channel, a joint venture between
Showtime Networks and Universal Studios.
SundanceTV’s new logo and on-air/online graphic update was developed in partnership with Base Design and Johnson + Wolverton.
