WCRS works on Now TV in the UK. Campaign revealed in August that Sky was in talks with ad networks ahead of a potential multimarket campaign.

AAR has a mystery brief out this week. It contacted ad agencies about a confidential client interested in their digital and TV capabilities. The intermediary gave no more information other than that it was a consumer brand. Whoever the client is, it seems to be in a hurry – agencies had two days to respond with credentials.

Following tissue meetings with Bartle Bogle Hegarty, Grey London, Ogilvy & Mather and Wieden & Kennedy on Tuesday, TK Maxx will hold pitches for its ad account at the start of October. Oystercatchers is handling the process.

Agencies find out tomorrow (Friday) if they have been shortlisted to pitch for Transport for London
