FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PR Log (Press Release) – May 03, 2010 – Legend of the Seeker fans worldwide unite and organize a "Thank You/Please Reconsider and Save our Seeker" advertisement campaign in Variety in an effort to have the series, or quest, as fans call it, continue with a third season. The series was declined for renewal on March 4, 2010 by the Tribune Company, the series' biggest syndication distributor in the US. At the time ABC had not decided on the future of the series and while no official statement has been released, as of April 26th, reports that the show had been canceled began coming in. Upon the reported news, the passion the fans have for Legend of the Seeker was met with fervor. The ad campaign was instantly organized and fans took to donating, resulting in raising the funds required - to place the ad - within three days.
The campaign has taken on a life of its own and has now increased in intensity and won't stop at raising money for the ad. The fans have been buying DVDs of the first season, buying the episodes on iTunes, pre-ordering the season two DVD, and have taken to Twitter, Facebook, Live Journal, blogging and all over the internet with the endeavor to not only save the series and get a third season, but to spread awareness of the series, as well. Having the show's cast and crew - Bridget Regan [lead actress who portrays the Mother Confessor, Kahlan Amnell], Mike Sussman [Writer and Co-Executive Producer], and Dayna Porter Chiplin [Bridget Regan's stunt double] - jump on board to support and help promote the efforts has given the devotees an even bigger fire than already expressed. A nearly impossible feat, as the fire is intense.
News of the fan driven campaign gained enough momentum in three days to show up on everyone's radar. A few entertainment press publications that have reported on the campaign efforts are The Examiner, TV Guide Magazine and Slice of SciFi. The fans have also received Tweets in support from actresses Felicia Day, Katrina Law, Erin L. Cummings, Lesley Ann Brandt, Vanessa Cater, Rileah Vanderbilt, actor Gabriel Mann, and writer/director/actor Sandeep Parikh, as well as Kristin Dos Santos [E!Online Watch with Kristin] and Damian Holbrook [TV Guide Senior Writer].
