In his email to me following his New York Times article about the number of movies or TV shows set in the glamorous world of advertising, advertising columnist Stuart Elliott said he might write another column about the movies and TV shows he left out of the original column. (See, For 60 Years, the Ad Game Has Been Fodder for Scripts — Why not PR?)
In today’s Times, “A Cultural Affinity for Madison Avenue,” Elliott wrote his follow-up article that mentioned two of the films I suggested, “Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?” and “Good Neighbor Sam.”
Meanwhile, I am still looking for other movies or TV shows involving a PR executive. In the NBC sitcom, “Mad About You,” Helen Hunt’s character was a PR exec., but her job was not a sustained focus of the show.
Let me know if you know of other PR-inspired movies or TV shows.
