NBC’s aggressive marketing push for the new cop series Southland became front page news, so to speak, when the Los Angeles Times ran a fake article (clearly identified as paid content by an NBC logo and a different typeface) next to its lead stories today, reports TVWeek. The item, headlined “Southland’s Rookie Hero,” offers readers a ride-along withnew LAPD officer Ben Sherman (played on the show by The OC‘s Ben McKenzie). Southland, produced by ER‘s John Wells, premieres tonight at 10pm.
