In a press release TNT announced that the network will launch a pair of online game sites in conjunction with the premieres of the second season of their crime caper Leverage and their new police drama Dark Blue.
In Leverage: Art of the Con, the Leverage team needs game players to recover files, documents and photos on Nate Ford's laptop by completing a series of missions. Those who accomplish each task will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a multi-city trip to become an expert in the art of the con. One lucky winner will visit Paris, London and New York, sites of some of history’s greatest capers. Games from the first season can be replayed at LeverageHQ.com until the new season starts on 07/15/2009.
At DarkBlueUndercover.com, game players will become members of an elite undercover squad run by Carter Shaw. Each player will get a false identity and weekly missions to bring down a gun-running ring. The challenges will force players to make some of the difficult decisions that undercover cops face. Based on these decisions, players will either get caught by the group they are trying to infiltrate; get “flipped” and become seduced by a life of crime; or go deeper undercover. At the end of 10 weeks, those who have taken the challenge will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a trip undercover in Los Angeles with VIP access to the hottest clubs and restaurants, a private helicopter tour of the Sunset strip, and a ride with a former undercover LAPD officer. An "undercover test" is currently available on the website that tests your observation skillls.
Leverage premieres Wednesday, July 15th at 9 PM (ET/PT); Dark Blue follows at 10 PM (ET/PT). The first season of Leverage will be available on DVD on 07/14/2009.
