NBCUniversal Looks One Year out to Paris 2024
NBCUniversal is gearing up to deliver an unparalleled viewing experience to fans worldwide for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024.
With just one year out, Savannah Guthrie, Team USA athletes, a partnership with The Knot, and even more celebrities are part of NBCUniversal’s “Save the Date” campaign that will help fans get ready for next summer’s highly anticipated Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024, scheduled for July 26 – Aug. 11, and Aug. 28 – Sept. 8, respectively.
Backed by the power of NBCUniversal’s Symphony promotional engine, the bespoke campaign kicks off a yearlong marketing and promotional effort that will drive viewers to NBCU’s coverage of the biggest media event of 2024.
This week, Savannah Guthrie is broadcasting live from Paris on June 7-8 to talk to NBC Olympics primetime host Mike Tirico as well as Team USA athletes Noah Lyles, Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone, Jordan Chiles, Shilese Jones and Konnor McClain. While in Paris, Guthrie will highlight some of the city’s most iconic landmarks, and preview what’s ahead for Paris 2024.
The campaign, running through August will consist of the following pillars:
- Musical legend Dolly Parton, the Minions, and WWE superstar Roman Reigns and his special counsel Paul Heyman star in a promotional video in which they are offered unbelievable opportunities next summer only to turn them down because they have already saved the date to watch the Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games. The promo premiered June 1 during a new episode of Bravo’s Top Chef World All-Stars in Paris featuring Olympians and Paralympians in a Quickfire Challenge, presented by Delta Airlines, Official Airline of Team USA. The spot will run across numerous NBCU platforms throughout the summer. Additional celebrities will star in subsequent versions. Click here to watch.
