W.E.B. was a very short-lived drama that ran on NBC for just five episodes on NBC in the fall of 1978. Pamela Bellwood starred as a top executive fighting for control at the highest levels of the fictional Trans-Atlantic Broadcasting network. The first half of the series premiere aired as a special “sneak preview” on Wednesday, September 13th from 10-11PM. The second half aired on Thursday, September 14th from 10-11PM, which was the show’s regular time slot. NBC yanked the show off the air three weeks later.

This particular ad is from the Eastern New England Edition of TV Guide. Channel 4 was WBZ-TV in Boston, MA and Channel 10 was WJAR-TV in Providence, RI.
