Jericho-like campaign to save sci-fi show sees fans sending in sunflower seeds to network.
Feb 02, 2008
4400 fans plant seeds of renewal at USA

Note to television studios: If you want an almost endless supply of nuts and grains, simply cancel one of your shows that enjoys a cult status.

The near-death experience of CBS's Jericho provided the networks' employees with more peanuts than they could handle, as irate fans sent in truckloads of the legume to protest the show's cancellation. The decision to send nuts was a play on one of the more spirited parts of dialogue from the Jericho season finale.

And in a world where corporations generally look at their customers with contempt, CBS did something rather strange: It listened, and gave the show a second chance at life (season two premieres February 12).

With precedent sent, it seems that every fan of every canceled show thinks that a few tons of foodstuffs ...

4400 renewed

When a Stargate closes, a 4400 season opens.

Cable channel USA Network has renewed The 4400, the science fiction series about 4,400 humans who vanish from Earth over the course of 50 years and return en masse. The series will return for a fourth season with 13 new episodes in 2007.

Earlier this month, 4400 executive producer Ira Steven Behr said he wasn't sure if the network would renew the show, but if they did he was ready.

"We have at least two more seasons planned. If we were forced to go on, I think we could figure it out," he said in a conference call.

The 4400 has averaged 3.35 million total viewers a week this season.

Today, sci-fi fans received the distressing news that Sci Fi Channel had opted not to renew Stargate SG-1 for an 11th ...

Arrested Development chief starting comedy for CBS; Dirty Sexy, 4400 bosses go sci-fi for ABC.

4400, Arrested guys get new projects

Executive producers in the television industry are busy, busy people. In keeping a show afloat, producers spend long hours overseeing almost every aspect of a program, including casting, writing, and just about everything else short of catering.

Some EPs are crazy enough to try their hand at juggling two shows, and some--like ABC's Greg Berlanti--are even crazier. Berlanti is currently behind Dirty Sexy Money, Brothers & Sisters, and Eli Stone--a gargantuan workload--and is ready to expand.

Berlanti is teaming up with producer/writer Rene Echevarria (The 4400) to develop The Return, a prospective show for ABC, says Variety. The show falls into Echevarria's expertise, science-fiction, and will show the impact of Earth's first alien visitors when they land on the planet.

Echevarria also wrote for and produced Dark Angel, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Now and Again, and currently works both jobs for Medium.

Another busy ...

The star and executive producer of USA's The 4400, talk about the upcoming finale and how Campbell's mysterious character fits into it.

4400's Campbell is a changed man

The third-season finale of The 4400 approaches, and Billy Campbell, who returned to the show as the mysterious tycoon Jordan Collier, sat down for a conference call yesterday alongside executive producer and show runner Ira Steven Behr. The 4400 is a science-fiction series that tells the story of 4,400 different people who vanished from the Earth over a span of 50 years and then returned all at once.

In June, Campbell himself returned from a year-plus ocean voyage delivering medical supplies to remote locations around the world. He says his experience had a profound effect on him.

"There will be ramifications in me that I am as yet unaware of," the actor said. "But so far, what I am most aware of is that having spent that much time in such a small space with a group of people is, you learn things about yourself. At least I did ...

Canadian television productions, including Bionic Woman and Battlestar Galactica, shut down as strike hits Canada.
Nov 16, 2007
Bye-bye Bionic, Battlestar
tv_StrikeSource2.jpg

The dominoes continue to fall as a result of the current Writers Guild of America strike. Although some shows, such as The Office and 30 Rock, shut down almost immediately, other programs keep on trucking because they still have a few scripts in the tank.

The ripples of the Hollywood rift have reached far beyond Southern California. Previous reports about endangered Canadian productions have now been confirmed by the Canadian affiliate of the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP). Among the shows presently shuttered are NBC's Bionic Woman and Sci-Fi's Battlestar Galactica, according to The Vancouver Sun.

The two shows, which shut down last Friday and yesterday, respectively, employed approximately 200 people. More employees of the industry working in Canada are expected to be without work as other shows inevitably halt production while the strike continues.

According to vice president of the Canadian branch ...

Prison Break, Office get renewals

Wednesday was a happy day for producers of Fox's Prison Break and American Dad, NBC's The Office and USA Network's The 4400.

All four shows have earned pickup orders from their respective networks.

Fox ordered nine episodes each of taut drama Prison Break, which led the charge for the network this season, and animated comedy Dad, bringing their complement to a full season's worth of 22 episodes. Prison Break got off to a strong start in its preseason August 29 launch and in recent weeks has held its own in the 9 p.m. Monday slot as Fox's rivals have rolled out their new Monday programs.

American Dad bowed in May behind Fox's relaunch of Family Guy in the Sunday 9-10 p.m. hour. Dad, from Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, has not been as big ...

Beginning 03 March 1946, and spanning over 50 years, 4,400 people were abducted in a blinding flash of light. 14 August 2004: A comet is due to fly-by Earth harmlessly. However, the comet's course suddenly changes to an impact trajectory, and the combined nuclear arsenals of multiple nations fail to destroy it. When the comet appears to slow down — as if it's coming in for a landing — 4,400 people are deposited in explosion over Highland Beach (Capilano Lake, British Columbia, Canada). The returnees — "The 4400" — have been missing from months to years. None have any memory of where they've been, none have aged, and a small number are beginning to manifest paranormal abilities. Theme Song: "A Place In Time" (performed by Amanda Abizaid) The 4400 was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and produced by CBS Paramount in association with Sky Television, Renegade 83 and American Zoetrope.moreless
