Hosted by CNBC anchor Julia Chatterley, Marketing.Media.Money will profile the chief marketing officers at some of the world's biggest brands. It will explore their careers, their business challenges and how they are directing their significant advertising spend. It will also spotlight the technological and consumption trends that are both fuelling and disrupting the business of brands.

Alongside Chatterley, the series will feature well-known media entrepreneur and chairman of C Squared, Charlie Crowe, as a guest contributor. CNBC Executive Producer, Martin Conroy, will oversee production.

Speaking at the show's London launch, Conroy said: 'Marketing.Media.Money looks at an industry that's undergoing unprecedented change. Advertising has always been an uncertain business, but the game is now changing at incredible pace: the platforms are expanding; the feedback is instant and the consumer has taken control. This series will guide the CNBC investor audience through a complicated but crucial dimension of business.'
