Look Up in the Sky, L.A.! It's a 'Nikita' Stunt!
In case you see a woman in a slinky red dress flying over SoCal beaches this weekend, chalk it up to "Nikita."
The CW's marketing folks are keeping busy over Los Angeles this weekend, starting with a stunt woman (who had done stunt work for "Nikita" star Maggie Q in the past) doing acrobatics from a helicopter flying from Newport Beach past Manhattan Beach, Redondo, Venice, Santa Monica to Malibu.
The stunt woman will be wearing a red dress similar to one worn by Maggie Q in those sexy "Nikita" billboards around town, and the helicopter will have branding promoting "Nikita," the new take on "La Femme Nikita" bowing this fall on the CW.
Also, the CW is sponsoring a car wash at La Cienega and San Vicente, across the street from Il Sole, supporting the network's other new series, "Hellcats."
And cheerleaders from local high schools will give free car washes on Sunset Blvd. all weekend. The car wash is free, but each school gets to keep the tips from their time at the location. (So don't cheap out, folks.)
