I can't rememeber, but have we written to USA Network? (NBC Universal). It seems that they have money and they are all into the "Characters Wanted" theme. If we haven't I think we should and if we have, then I think we should put them on the JBC again.
I honestly can't remember writing to them. If they are a part of the NBC Universal network, then they are now owned by Comcast. Do we know what some of their popular shows are, and what audience they like to target?
If we haven't attacked them yet it's worth a shot. Universal gave us Browncoats "Serenity". It was the fans who convinced them to do it..
On the downside, however, Serenity didn't pull in as much at the box office as Universal would have liked so they might be a little shy.
On the up side of that tho is that "Firefly" only ever got 14 episodes filmed (only 12 ever aired) whereas "Seeker" has had two complete seasons which easily proves the possible profitability of the series to Universal.
I forget what all TV shows they own but based on films I'd say they have a wide target audience.
Writer, Artist, Gamer, and Professional pain in the butt.
Thanks, I kinda vaguely remember them being on the list.
What made me think of USA is that they seem to be well funded, are carrying original and purchased programming. And while they don't have fantasy shows, per se they do have some more intelligent and different shows. (Burn Notice and White Collar being 2 that I watch). They have the whole "character's wanted campaign and it seems to me LoTs definitely has great characters
A legitimate pitch focused on these things could easily be made!
Journey Book Campaign: Week of January 31st - Feb 5th/2011
We have our new update from the Journey Book, and this week (beginning January 31) we will be writing to two sources. One is a repeat, and one is new. We will be writing to NBC again, as we hope to make an impression with the new management there.
We will also be writing to Legendary Pictures. They seem to focus primarily on fantasy themed programs, and their CEO is currently working with Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert (producers of Seeker) on the upcoming fantasy movie Warcraft.

Journey Book Campaign: Feb 7th - Mar 5th Schedule for Febuary 7th - March 5th
We've had lots of international fans request that we post the schedule a week in advance so that the majority of letters can arrive around the same time, and I've unfortunately met this request not with an earlier schedule, but often a late one. Due to fan request and my own inability to post the schedule in a timely fashion, we have decided to plan the schedule for the next month.
I'll still try to post a reminder for each week, but work and school have me tied up most of the time, so please bookmark this page in order to better keep up with the schedule.

Erika: Hi everyone - since this fandom has pretty much died off - I'm going to let the main website expire. The forums are free so they'll stay open. I'm planning on eventually redoing my own main website w/ all of my screencaps/artwork so I'll eventually load...

Erika: my LOTS caps there. But at this point, w/ as little traffic that's around here, I can't justify spending $75 a year to keep the website open.

Erika: Err alright things are still up. I'm actually working on new galleries w/ easier, less antiquated software for the photo gallery and maybe I'll update the caps board under a new URL. I'll keep you all posted.
