Turner Classic Movies Unveils New Look, Tagline

NOTE: This article is 1 year old and may not include the most recent information.

Turner Classic Movies (TCM), the leader in airing uncut, commercial-free classic films for 27 years, today unveiled a network rebrand that reflects the evolution in the way modern audiences are engaging with classic movies. TCM’s new tagline “Where Then Meets Now” further establishes the network as the destination and catalyst for reframing the conversation around 20th century films for the 21st century.

“Everything old is new and classic movies are no exception,” said Pola Changnon, general manager of TCM. “Our new look better reflects the vibrant brand and respected industry authority that TCM has become over the years, with an eye toward the future. Fans can still enjoy the same curated classic film experience, now presented with a bold new energy that reflects today’s audience.”

Developing the next chapter of the brand, TCM worked with Sibling Rivalry on developing the tagline and dynamic creative packaging. The new logo focuses on the energy of the C in TCM that comes to life in print and video. The double ‘C’ represents a modern take on the classic film lens and the four key ‘Cs’ of the brand – curation, context, connection, and culture, all of which are at the heart of TCM. For the overall creative conceit, the network went back in time, using the vibrant tones of the original Technicolor spectrum to frame and elevate the black and white imagery of classic films.

For the sonic identity, the network collaborated with Made Music Studio to create a custom sound that will give life to the new and colorful conceit. The TCM ‘song’ is a mash-up of several genres, including pop and the rapture of strings, which are a nod to iconic Hollywood musicals.

In addition to the packaging refresh, the on-air sets for TCM Hosts Ben Mankiewicz, Eddie Muller, Alicia Malone, Dave Karger, and Jacqueline Stewart will be reimagined and updated to lean into the personalities of each host with a more contemporary direction. Ben Mankiewicz’s new set will debut on TCM in primetime tonight, with subsequent sets revealed in the coming weeks.

Culture morphs, tastes change and new stars are born, but TCM has remained a constant in Hollywood for almost three decades, currently ranking as a Top 30 cable network and has recently expanded beyond linear with a branded classics hub experience on HBO Max. Leveraging the vast film libraries from Warner Bros., HBO Max is a top streaming destination for movie fans, with TCM hosting their annual Classic Film Festival on the service this year.

The updated look can now be seen on the TCM channel as well as on tcm.com.
