Background

Nash Entertainment is a television production company founded by Bruce Nash, founded in 1994.

1st Logo (September 14, 1994)


Visuals: The screen is divided into two parts, which is a white rectangle at the top and black at the bottom. A stylized "N" in an orange oval with "N A S H" underneath slides on the top, and the white text "E N T E R T A I N M E N T" slides in at the bottom.

Technique: 2D computer animation.

Audio: The ending theme of the special.

Availability: Only shown on Angels Among Us.

2nd Logo (October 5, 1994-February 21, 2009)


Visuals: After a strike of lightning is shown, two golden parallelograms quickly zoom out on a black background, revealing themselves to be the stylized "N" from before inside an oval also outlined in gold. The words

NASH
E N T E R T A I N M E N T

fade in below and the text shines.

Trivia: The logo was produced by G Man Productions and Kelly Shelly Design on September 13, 1994 (this is known because you can see a frame of the logo's production slate before the logo appears on 50 Years of Soaps: An All Star Celebration).

Variants:

  • Starting in 2008, an updated version has most of the logo being smaller in size (except "ENTERTAINMENT", which is bigger), with a reflection below, and with a green aura around the stylized "N" tilted towards the right.
  • Sometimes, the words "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" (in white) appear below the logo.
  • A still in-credit variant exists.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: There were three themes throughout this logo's lifetime:

  • 1994-1995(?): A thunderclap-like whoosh sound.
  • 1995-1996(?): A whoosh, then a calm synth tune, with four drumbeats at the end.
  • 1996-: Same as before, but the whoosh has been changed to a zap sound.
  • NBC and Fox airings used a generic theme.
