Closing Logo Group

Background: Primetime Entertainment, Inc. was initially founded as Richard Price Television Associates (RPTA), and in some cases it would have this company byline. They were once distributors of the London Weekend material in the United States.


Logo: On a black background, two white lights coming from the top and left of the screen draw a pair of two red lines (one going horizontal, one going vertical). Then four light-blue squares slide in the corners of the lines, and the whole thing flashes and zooms out to reveal the word "PRIMETIME" in big, bold red letters on a black/blue gradient background. Then, the text "ENTERTAINMENT, INC." (also in red) zooms out from the bottom in a shadow effect and positions itself under the "PRIMETIME" text. When everything's in place, the logo shines.

FX/SFX: Pretty cool animation!

Music/Sounds: A type of "warbling" synth jingle that turns into a synthesized fanfare alongside a descending synth tune at the end.

Music/Sounds Variant: On the short-lived 1986 sitcom What a Country!, the end theme is used.

Availability: A very tough find. Last seen on 1980s U.S. syndicated airings of the British TV show Terrahawks. Also seen on mid-1980s prints of classic movies offered on their syndication packages, plastering the Trident logo. One example is the 1972 movie Something Evil.

Scare Factor: Minimal. This is actually a cool logo.
