Generate Jeremiah Buzz Campaign

We have updated our example letters below and be sure to check out the related press stories that have been covering the campaign.

Thank you to everyone who has contacted anyone regarding this campaign. We are making progress! Read about the latest updates to this page.

What To Do Today: July.22.2017
NOTE: If you don't see the current date above, hit the refresh button on your browser or the F5 button. If that doesn't work, try these two buttons together: CTRL + F5

If you haven't gotten a hold of a copy of the "missing 8" episodes that are airing in Canada, do whatever you can to see them and then write Showtime and MGM about what a shame it is that the USA is missing out on such a wonderful show. Crossing Jordan is one of those episodes that is an absolute must see.

Please thank MGM for producing the show so far and ask Showtime to air the "missing 8" episodes from season two as early as possible in 2004. While we are thanking them, why not ask them to commision more new episodes for a third season and why you like the show? The more we bother them, the better chance we have at making them realize how important this show is to them.

Our messages and phone calls are making a difference. I have heard this from a number of inside sources and they all say the same thing. Hop to it by following the instructions below.

Finally, if you have already emailed Showtime and MGM a number of times, why not drop a note to one of the channels that might be interested in syndicating the show? SciFi Channel picked up Stargate SG-1 and it has been doing wonderful for them so why not ask them to add Jeremiah to their lineup?

Background Information
On October 2nd, 2002, Showtime announced a 15 episode renewal for season two. All 15 episodes have been produced and completed in post-production. These episodes just need to be put on the air so we are confused why Showtime decided to stop airing season two after only 7 episodes have been shown. There is no news about when the remainder of the season will air so this is where we need your help.

We don't need to convince them to produce new episodes (although, getting a season three renewal certainly wouldn't hurt) nor does Showtime care very much about the ratings. What they do like? Buzz. This is something we certainly have some control over! We need to create some noise at Showtime and MGM about the show. Let them know we care about the show and it is worth keeping on the air. We cannot stress enough how important it is to do something because this show is too good to not go down without a fight.

We have good news folks! Showtime's official Jeremiah web site has updated their front page with this information:

Jeremiah Returns!
More new JEREMIAH episodes coming in 2004! Stay tuned for details.

Strategy and Tactics

STRAGEGY

  1. The number of different people participating doesn't matter as much as how many people each person contacts. This means that if everyone participating makes an effort to contact more than one person at Showtime and MGM, we can make a Jeremiah-sized dent in their 2004 lineup. If everybody participating gets a friend to do the same, we already are FOUR TIMES better off than we were to begin with. So, what are you waiting for?
  2. The more people talk about it, or bother Showtime and MGM about it, the more important the show is in the eyes of those people who make the decisions.
  3. Ratings don't matter as much as buzz this time. Buzz, of course, means people talking about the show, preferably in public forums such as the press.
  4. You can make a difference with this. Your voice WILL be heard.
  5. No anger, no screaming "unfair," no childish behavior, and check your grammar, spelling, and capitalization.
  6. We have some AWESOME prizes for people who participate. If you can't find any other reason to send a letter, imagine owning your very own ASS-KICKING Jeremiah promotional T-shirt or a season one DVD set and more!

TACTICS

Our main target: SHOWTIME
Our secondary target: MGM

  1. E-MAIL the people listed below -- Use the customer-help URL's as well to voice your opinions. Remember, quantity counts!
  2. PHONE CALLS. Make calls to the people listed below.
  3. POST on the official Showtime bulletin board.
  4. WRITE LETTERS to the offices of MGM, Showtime and anyone else you think will listen.

Network Contact Information
If you prefer to send your own message, please do so! Feel free to include other shows you would like these networks to air or if Jeremiah was the only reason for subscribing to Showtime or how you can't afford Showtime but watch it at a friend's house or anything else that you can think of to mention Jeremiah.

Here is an easy three-step process for contacting all the important MGM and Showtime contacts:

  1. Use our easy "one click" link to write ALL Jeremiah related contacts:

    EMAIL ALL JEREMIAH NETWORK CONTACTS

  2. Copy one of these messages (or use your own) and paste it into the body of the email that appears with each link.
  3. Hit Send!

You can make a difference. Your voice and opinion matters.

If you can, try to use the BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) method if you are mass emailing people via the links above. If you want to write to the same people again, please customize the message a little bit each time as each unique email and letter counts.

Here is a copy of the email we sent. Please do not copy it word for word, but feel free to use it as a guideline for crafting your own email or letter.
