Synopsis

These three words aptly describe the conclusion of our series Autoline in LA. But at the same time this phrase also hints at the content of this final episode. Sort of parable of the Ying and Yang of American marketing.

For as long as there's been a Hollywood there's been a Detroit. As long as there have been directors there have been marketers. And as long as there has been an entertainment audience there's been a built-in avenue for the auto industry. On this week's edition of Autoline in LA we explore the long-standing synergies between these two economic powers.

Joining John McElroy to look at the history of this relationship and analyze its success are two members from very different ends of the entertainment community. Many may know Josh Hancock from his hosting duties on XM's Car and Driver Radio, but that's only one of the Hollywood hats he wears. From acting and collaborating in both film and television, Josh also advises LA's movers and shakers on the type of car they need to drive. Our other panelist, Al Uzielli, may be more recognizable to some as a member of the Ford Family, but he joins us to talk about his work in Hollywood with Ford Global Brand Entertainment. As a graduate of the American Film Institute and nearly two decades as an independent film producer under his belt, it's his job to help the automaker place its vehicles in upcoming movies and television shows.

So join us as we say goodbye to Los Angeles with a Hollywood ending. That's a wrap for Autoline in LA.
