Showtime Networks has celebrated their ranking on the top of the television-series food chain for a few years now—as they should. The network has launched a killer lineup of shows in the past five-ish seasons, and this one is no different. To commemorate the launch of the 2010-2011 scripted dramas, the network debuted its third annual Showtime House in New York on September 7, this year at Midtown Manhattan’s Cassa Hotel and Residences.
A collaboration with some of the world’s top designers, the show house marries high design with new technologies and some serious Tinsel Town drama, taking over the top three penthouses of the 48-story building.
“The Showtime House, like the ones that preceded it, is the personification of the Showtime brand,” said Len Fogge, Executive Vice President, Creative, Marketing, Research and Digital Media, Showtime Networks Inc. “Armed this year with an entirely new group of cutting-edge designers and in a contemporary midtown location, we infused the latest in cutting-edge technology into the house to demonstrate how both entertainment and design are evolving into new forms. These added elements of digital interactivity will add a new dimension to the visitors’ experience, providing a deeper connection with our Showtime series.”
The Showtime House will be open through October 27 for private events and public tours.
