"Felicity'' Fans -- and Some Cast
Members -- Hold a Rally Outside the WB
Network to Show Their Support for the Show
BURBANK, Calif.--(ENTERTAINMENT WIRE)--May 10,
2000--"Felicity" fans are
speaking out! Yesterday, a group of "Felicity" fans gathered outside The WB
Television Network in Burbank, California, to show their support for the
critically-acclaimed show, which has not yet been renewed for a third season.
The fans were joined by cast members from the series including Greg Grunberg
("Sean"), Amanda Foreman ("Meghan"), Ian Gomez, ("Javier"), Robert Patrick
Benedict ("Richard"), Donald Faison ("Tracy") and Sally Kirkland, who appeared
as Professor Sherman in several episodes this season.
Kirkland recently broke her foot and had to have someone drive her to the
rally because she refused to miss the event! The fans brought signs, took
pictures with the cast and loudly voiced their support for the series. E!
Entertainment Television, KTLA-TV (the Los Angeles WB affiliate), Loadtv.com
and Los Angeles radio station KYSR-FM are some of the outlets that covered
Jamie Kellner, The WB Television Network's Chief Executive Officer, and other
WB executives have been flooded with thousands of e-mail pleas from
"Felicity" fans, asking him to renew their favorite show for a third season.
The network's e-mail system became so clogged in fact that fans resorted to
other tactics and have also sent in some audio tapes (a la Felicity's tapes
to her friend Sally), postcards and placed phone calls to the network.
"Felicity" recently moved from Sunday nights to Wednesday nights at 9 p.m.
ET/PT and the ratings have improved dramatically. The series is produced by
Imagine Television in association with Touchstone Television Productions LLC.
Thanks to Rana for passing this on.
