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; 2013- )
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, still, and 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.
- Starting on the 6th season of Watch What Happens: Live, the logo appears a little close-up.
- Some shows use a warp-speed version.
FX/SFX: The line drawing. None for the still shot.
Music/Sounds: The end-title of the theme of the show or none. For the logo theme, it's a ambient synth theme.
Music/Sounds Variant: On The Substitute, the logo theme is sped-up and played in a different tone.
- It's currently seen on the 2009 revival of The Newlywed Game, the 2006 revival of Chain Reaction, and the short-lived game show Power of 10, all on Game Show Network with the former on BounceTV starting on season 4 of The Newlywed Game, The Substitute on MTV, Talking Dead on AMC, and Watch What Happens: Live on Bravo.
- It was also seen on the ultra short-lived series Make My Day on TV Land, the ultra short-lived series Hidden Agenda on GSN, and Keith Barry: Extraordinary, among others.
- The still logo was seen on seasons 1-5 of Watch What Happens: Live on Bravo.
Editor's Note: None.
2nd Logo (June 2012?- )
Nicknames: "E/R II", "Spinning E/R", "The E/R Propeller"
Logo: On a somewhat dim white background, 2 copies of a shiny red "ER" logo spin around rapidly like a propeller, all while zooming out. Among stopping in the middle of the screen, the 2nd logo disappears and a large light flashes in below. When it dies down, it reveals the words "EMBASSY ROW" in red and they both shine.
- It appears in-credit on The Newlywed Game, The Pyramid, and season 2 of The American Bible Challenge.
- A flat, 2D variant appears in-credit on OWN Tonight.
- On the short-lived Oxygen show Street Art Showdown, the logo is shortened to a second, only having the light die down.
- For some unknown reason, productions involving Jerry Seinfeld, like Jerry Before Seinfeld and Jerry Seinfeld: 23 Hours to Kill, use a cheap remake of the logo. Here, the movements of the "ER" are stiffer and cheaper-looking, the "ER" appears to have less polygons and more shiny edges, the background appears to be a bright spotlight on a black wall, and the flash is also less fancy. The logo was "enhanced" in 2020 by having a darker background, a richer color for the logo, and the flash reworked so that it appears in the middle first.
FX/SFX: The spinning, and the light flashing.
Music/Sounds: The end-title theme of the show.
- On the Watch What Happens: Live episode "Jersey Housewives Tell All" and Unapologetic with Aisha Tyler, the logo is silent.
- On some shows like the 2nd season of The Kathy Griffin Show and My Brother, My Brother and Me, it's a different ambient synth theme.
Availability: Common. It can be seen on The American Bible Challenge, The Pyramid, the final season of The Newlywed Game on Game Show Network with the former and latter on BounceTV, season 2 of Talking Dead on AMC, and Watch What Happens: Live and Fashion Queens on Bravo, among other shows.
Editor's Note: None.
