Bauer Media’s TV WEEK has launched into the monthly market with a new title, TV WEEK Close Up.
The inaugural TV WEEK Close Up issue is on sale tomorrow (Thursday 2 August), and features exclusive coverage of the latest happenings in Aussie TV, interviews with its brightest stars and industry power brokers, and behind-the-scenes access to the most watched shows.
In the launch issue, TV WEEK Close Up sits down for an in-depth interview with Logie-winning actress Jessica Marais, who opens up about the challenges of always being in the spotlight, her fears for the future and the joy of being a mum.
There is also a special report on the future of Australian TV drama, a heartfelt farewell to the acclaimed period drama A Place To Call Home, and exclusive interviews with Hamish & Andy, Jonathan LaPaglia, Julia Morris and Sam Frost.
Thomas Woodgate, editor of TV WEEK Close Up, said: “TV WEEK has earned the trust of our best talent over many years, and we have unrivalled access to Australian stars and shows. It’s this access that we want to be able to share every month.
“We want to provide more of what we know readers love, which is in-depth chats, photo shoots with the stars, exclusive behind-the-scenes looks at favourite shows, and nostalgic trips down TV memory lane.”
Bauer Media’s head of product development, Paul Weaving, said: “TV WEEK is a brand that holds enormous trust from both its readers and the talent who feature in it every week.
“Close Up is a natural extension for the brand and will appeal to not just the current TV WEEK audience, but also anyone who enjoys the incredible TV on our screens right now.
“TV WEEK Close Up is Bauer Media Australia’s third new launch for 2018 and follows the fantastic success of Take 5 Monthly, which continues to exceed launch expectations.
“Expect even more to come from TV WEEK in 2018 as Bauer continues to innovate in print and across platforms.”
This week’s launch of TV WEEK Close Up – which will be sold for an introductory half-price RRP of $2.99 – is supported with a broadcast TVC, as well as a print and digital advertising campaign.
