LONDON - Brooklyn Brothers has won Virgin Media TV's advertising account after a three-way pitch.

Virgin1... Brooklyn Brothers wins creative business for VM TV
Virgin1... Brooklyn Brothers wins creative business for VM TV

The account, which covers creative duties for TV channels including Living, Virgin1 and Bravo, was previously divided between a number of small shops, and the aim of the review was to consolidate the business into one agency.

The pitch, which was handled through Oystercatchers and run by Jeff Dodds, the recently appointed brand and marketing director, was called because the broadcaster felt its channels’ growth justified increased spend and unified communications.

Virgin Media TV, which recently relaunched its Virgin1 channel with a new puppet character called Red, has been put up for sale by its owner, Virgin Media, with potential buyers including BSkyB and Channel 4.
