‘This Week’ debuts new open
The new open combines thick red, white and blue vertical bands over stylized photographs of Washington, D.C. landmarks and a subtle grid texture with a drum-heavy version of the show’s theme.
The look borrows elements from the promotional spots and graphics ABC used for its 2016 election coverage — and, like that look, has some visual connections to the title card of the network’s own political drama, “Designated Survivor.”
The show’s teases incorporate a mix of lower third banners with all caps text previewing story topics and “floating” pull quote-style text in sentence case.
The new look also extended to the video wall graphics used as OTS elements behind anchor George Stephanopoulos.
