Embassy Row is an American television, global-based format, and digital production company based in New York City, that was founded on May 12, 2005 by British television producer Michael Davies, entertainment marketer Tera Hanks, and filmmaker and former LivePlanet CEO Chris Moore. Davies' production company at the time, Diplomatic Productions was immediately folded into Embassy Row. In January 2006, Embassy Row joined forces with Sony Pictures Television for a 3-year contract deal until SPT acquired the company on January 14, 2009.
Note: Embassy Row is not to be confused with Embassy Communications (formerly T.A.T. Communications Company and Embassy Television now "ELP Communications"), another television company that's currently owned by Sony Pictures.
1st Logo (2005-2012)Edit
Logo: On a dimly-lit white background, there is an orange line with a light tip at the front flying in from the left to the center of the screen. The light would get a little bright and the rest of the line would later merge into the light to make a curve and half of the letter "R". Growing out from the other half of the "R" is half of the letter "E" with a diagonal line in between the "E" and "R". The entire logo would zoom-in while animating and "EMBASSY ROW" in red-orange would fade-in and zoom-in at the same time. The light would travel down the "R", through the name, and half-way up to the letter "E".
- Starting on S2 of The Newlywed Game on GSN, the logo would appear as in-credit, leaving the background intact.
- On Watch What Happens: Live, the entire logo is red a still shot on a white background.
- There is a sped-up version that's seen on The Substitute and the 6th season of Watch What Happens: Live.
