A pitch for you to watch The Pitch

AMC’s The Pitch returns tonight for its second season, and as you can see in the preview below, its first season was critically acclaimed, though only some critics got the names of their publications read aloud in the promo.

While it could have devolved into an Undercover Boss-style advertisement, the series focused on both people and process, and didn’t avoid uglier moments, all presented it in a beautifully shot and edited package. It also frustratingly left out the reason why the advertiser chose the winning agency, and I hope season two changes that. (Read my full season one review.)

Even if it doesn’t, though, it’s still an hour of reality television worth watching.
