From Redsox at UHD:
Hello Fellow Rangers:
Just wanted to send you out a message on a couple of things. First, as I stated earlier in the week I have taken some time off, partly due to stress form the long campaign and other personal issues. I am posting from time to time and have asked K6, Rate Keeper, NorsU and Dean to keep things moving along. I will continue to send out updates once in a while to keep things pushing along.
The numbers continue to climb, youtube hits are over 1,200,000 and the pilot is now over 95,000. UHD posts have topped the 25,000 mark and Sci Fi is closing in on 60,000.
I am still not happy with the comic book announcement this past week but have been told by many that it has become a normal way of marketing a franchise. Our goal is to get Jericho to that point where it is considered a franchise by Paramount, which I believe will help get the movie done.
A lot of things are going on right now but I have noticed that many including Lenni and Skeet and many of the producers are under contract to CBS Paramount.
NorsU and k6 have created along with a lot of help from other Rangers and gamers a great ARG game which is being followed all over the web.
On the Weekend of April 24 – 26, 2009, the Welcome Home to Jericho event is going on in LA at the Sportsman Lodge in LA. This is not only a great opportunity to help raise money for Soldiers and their families but also to create a lot of publicity for Jericho, the possible movie and a Season 3. There will be many of the Jericho family at the event. If you live in Southern California, I encourage you to register and attend as much of the event as possible.
Tired of all this economic turmoil and crazy weather? Let your heart not be troubled and come home to Jericho where you’ll be pampered, have fun with old friends, meet new ones and mingle with Esai Morales (Major Beck), April Parker Jones (Darcy Hawkins), Loomer, Matt Federman and others. Enjoy the tropical surroundings, sweet smell of ocean breezes. Come join us for a Welcome Home to Jericho Event April 24-26th at the Sportsmen’s Lodge Hotel in Studio City California . Event information and registration is at www.welcomehometojericho.com.
Discounted rooms, airfare, car rental and much more! HUR RY ! Beat the deadline before costs go up.
This will be a very inspirational experience to show support and gratitude to our deployed troops and their families in need. Come join us for fun and relaxation with Jericho fans, friends, cast and crew.
We want to remind you to register online at www.welcomehometojericho.com
before March 25, 2009 to take advantage of the current reduced prices. Prices will increase after that date. If you plan on attending, but cannot yet register, we will hold the reduced price for you if you respond by email no later than Monday, March 16th. You can email us from the WHTJ site.
We also want to encourage you to reserve your hotel room as soon as possible. There is another event scheduled during the same weekend as the WHTJ event and we can not hold open blocked rooms later than March 23rd.
We thank you and look forward to seeing you there.
The WHTJ Team
In addition, we need to remain vigilant and need to continue to be counted. Many of us are tired and probably sick of writing letters. We are looking for an announcement for the movie which may lead to a season 3 down the road. To get that we will need people to continue to watch, complete Feedback Forms, send emails, post cards and letters to CBS Paramount, the CW, epix.
I have included Robert Greenblatt at Showtime as well for those who want to send him a letter.
Showtime is owned by CBS and was able to put one of its’ shows, Dexter onto CBS last year. Dexters ratings as well as most of the Showtime shows are in the ballpark with Jericho repeats. As we are look for a partnership deal for Jericho with epix and the CW (think Friday Night Lights and NBC) having CBS Paramount produce a new season of Jericho for Showtime and then run it on the CW offers them the same type of deal and they retain total ownership.
