Press Kits Unwrapped: TNT's The Closer
When I got a knock on the door yesterday morning from the FedEx guy, I got all excited because I thought it was a pair of Cubs tickets that I bought for an upcoming trip I'm taking to Chicago. But when I looked down, I saw a black box. When I turned it over, the box had the label you see above. It's a press kit for TNT's returning hit The Closer, and it shows star Kyra Segdgwick guiltily nibbling on a bunch of cookies. The tag line on the label is "Everyone has something to confess..." Hmm. Interesting. Obviously this label held some strong clues as to what I would find in the box. So I cut the sealing tape, opened it up, and found what I suspected would be in the package...
Cookies! It looked like there were about ten in there, of all flavors (hence the extensive nutrition information sheet that was included). Each cookie was wrapped in cellophane and contained a sticker with a potentially embarrassing confession. The individual confessions are in the photos below:
As you can tell, they're not particularly salacious confessions, just little ones that people might be embarrassed about (though I take umbrage at the online dating one ... don't most people readily admit they're doing that?).
I'll admit to my own confession, though ... before I took these photos, I snarfed one of the cookies myself. It was a delicious chocolate chunk cookie that had the following label on it:
Interestingly, the one thing I didn't find in the package was a DVD of The Closer's season premiere. I guess it's not done yet, so the PR showmen sent this out to whet critics' appetites (pun intended). I guess I can wait for the screener to come out; after all, there are nine cookies left.
