'Legend of the Seeker' Fan-Driven Campaign Momentum Continues with an Ad in The Hollywood Reporter
Fans continue to pour money and energy into the "Save Our Seeker" campaign resulting in the second ad published in The Hollywood Reporter, while Terry Goodkind, author of the 'Sword of Truth' book series the show is based on, announces his support.
On April 26, 2010 Entertainment Weekly reported that 'Legend of the Seeker' had been canceled after only two seasons, but the fans hope that their passionate efforts will result in a third season. Thus, a second call for participation was put forth for design entries and fans voted again to choose their favorite ad. The winning design, created by Miriam Kintscher, who also created the first ad, is the representation of the fans' energy, passion and gratitude.
The 'Save Our Seeker' campaign received an enormous boost on May 9th, when Terry Goodkind, the creator of the best selling series “Sword of Truth” on which 'Legend of the Seeker' is based, announced his support for the fan-led campaign. “I'm proud to lend my support to the 'Save Our Seeker' fan community," says Terry Goodkind. “Your words and your efforts are getting notice. Now more than ever is time to rise in support of Richard and Kahlan," also asserts Goodkind. As a result of the fans' enthusiasm and Goodkind's support, saveourseeker.com traffic has increased exponentially reaching 66,000 hits and 49,000 unique visitors.
Fans around the world continue working tirelessly to raise money, sign online petitions, send letters, cards, and even videos to ABC Studios, and local TV stations. To date, $12,000 have been raised to not only purchase the ads in 'Daily Variety' and 'The Hollywood Reporter, but to strive forward with campaign activities as well.
Many entertainment press publications continue to report on the campaign efforts, including SciFi Wire, SciFiPulse, AfterEllen, Bleeding Cool, Examiner, and others. Twitter trending has become a fan favorite and a weekly appointment for the fans that will engage again on triple trending starting May 14th through the 16th. Even other fan-bases, such as Allison Mack fans and The X-Files community will join the Twitter trending to show support for 'Legend of the Seeker'.
