Journey Book Campaign: Schedule for May 30th - July 1st  
Schedule for May 30th-July 1st




Noteworthy Campaigns
  • SaveOurSeeker.com: More than $35,000 raised in support of the series.
  • Three ads (1, 2) in major entertainment publications (Variety, THR x2)
  • Bus Shelter ad
  • Hundreds of DVDs donated to public libraries in the US - with support from Terry Goodkind, Craig Horner, and Bridget Regan
  • Campaigning at fan conventions (several thousand iTunes downloads and poster giveaways, fan panels, costume parade, etc) - Dragon Con [photos here], RingCon [photos here] and ROMICS [photos here throughout the forum thread and videos here]; NYCC photos are posted on the NYCC thread, and NYCC newsletter that went out to 25,000 people with a banner ad sponsored by the fans [screenshot here].
  • International fan videos: http://www.youtube.com/user/LOTSvideo
  • Facebook banner ad.
  • Google Ads here. Note: If you come across these ads please do not click on them. Doing so will needlessly charge the SOS campaign, as they are designed to both bring new fans to the series and bring other fans into the campaign.
  • WonderCon 2011 photos here.
  • Naples Comicon 2011 photos to be posted here
  • Variety.com banner ad shown here
  • Big Apple Comic-Con photos here NEW


And always remember...
  • Your letter can simply be a brief note, so long as it is clear you want more Legend of the Seeker. ;)
  • Postcards are both cheap and very effective.
  • Be polite in your letters. The person who will read them didn't cancel our show, so we shouldn't treat them as if they did.
  • If possible, try to argue that Legend of the Seeker would greatly benefit all parties involved in its resurrection. State that even with poor time slots, lack of promotion and erratic airing schedules, the series still managed to gain millions of dedicated followers. If given a chance, it could be one of the most popular shows currently on television!
  • To request re-runs when we contact the networks.
  • We have Terry Goodkind's support! [link] NEW(ish)

Not yet I'm afraid! There is a R2 on the German amazon site though if you don't mind subtitles and a German packaging?
