Books On TV™ - About Us

Our Company

Books On TV™ is the all-inclusive TV advertising solution for authors and publishers, and it fits even a starter advertising budget.

Books on TV™ is one of a suite of television advertising services from Academy Leader, Inc., a multifaceted media company that spans broadcast, cable, video, motion picture and new media venues.

We're the world's most award-winning boutique TV advertising agency.

Our Founders

We're film and television industry people, not just computer geeks - so we know how to make your TV advertising stand out from the crowd.

Books on TV™ is the brainchild of Academy Leader, Inc., who brought you the original, international online TV advertising agency, Cheap TV Spots®. Back in 2001, our company shook up the advertising world when we launched our hyper-discount TV advertising service, breaking down the barrier for small businesses of all kinds to participate in television, widely regarded as the most powerful advertising tool available.

While interacting with our clients, we found that the special needs of the publishing marketplace were fascinating, yet largely underserved by regular production companies. Now we're here with a new, all-inclusive service to make promoting authors and publishers with TV advertising simpler and more affordable.

The founders of Books on TV™ have been working together for over a decade in the competitive film and television arenas, as well as consulting to the high-tech and small business world. With numerous award-winning TV and film productions to their credit, the founders now turn their well-received creative energy toward revolutionizing TV advertising for authors and publishers, with the launch of Books on TV™.

Our Team

You know that any great company is only as good as its team members. Our team comes from a wide range of backgrounds with companies like Disney, 20th Century Fox, Paramount, MGM, Hanna Barbera, Universal Pictures, Imagine, Showtime, Time Warner, SGI, Sun Microsystems, IBM, and numerous local TV and radio stations. We've been featured on national news programs and on popular shows such as Entertainment Tonight.

Our in-house creative team, many of whom have more than 25 years of experience each in the entertainment and advertising industries, has garnered a total of over 120 national and international awards.

Our Investors

Books on TV™ is a privately funded venture; therefore, we don't have to sacrifice quality for quotas. We have no institutional investors to appease. Our only concern is for your advertising success.

Our company joins with a select handful of quality-focused companies to bring additional services to our TV advertising customers, ranging from radio, PR, and mobile ads to add-on services like call centers, animation, and jingles.

Our Awards

Our experienced creative team has won over 100 awards specifically for our TV commercial productions. Here are just a few:

The Aurora Awards, Platinum Best of Show - This yearly international competition for film and TV professionals boasts some of the most stringent judging standards.

The Telly Awards Silver Award - Top honors in a respected international competition for excellence in television. Telly winners include Stephen Colbert's "The Colbert Report" on Comedy Central.
