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.
