Veronica Mars Movie Campaign!

Veronica Mars fans fought a good fight trying to save it from cancellation. Unfortunately, it didn't work out for the small screen, but there might still be hope for the big screen!


Excerpt from The Top Five Campaigns to Save TV Shows from Cancellation:


What did fans send?


Mars Bars to Dawn Ostrow, head of the CW network. Very clever, until campaigning fans last summer realized that Mars Bars are in limited supply here in the States; they’re strictly a European candy. Whoops.


When candy importers couldn’t keep up with demand, fans started sending letters, e-mails, marshmallows, and whatever else they thought could get the attention of execs at the CW.


How successful was the campaign?


In addition to the candy sent by individual fans, importer The Indian Food Store fulfilled over 1,400 pounds in orders for confections sent to the CW: 4,848 Snickers Almond Bars, 2,040 Mars Bars from England, and 510 pounds of marshmallows.


The result? Producers got as far as creating a 12-minute mini-pilot for a proposed season four. (You can see it in the DVD extras of season three.) Unfortunately, the network decisively killed the show, anyway, but writer/creator Rob Thomas remains "motivated" to bring Veronica Mars back in a screenplay or a comic book. He just needs to free up the time to make it happen.


In the meantime, campaigning continues. Over 2,000 eager fans have signed a petition to syndicate the series, and 4,000 signatures have been added to a petition for a Veronica Mars movie.

The last episode of Veronica Mars was so long ago. But its worth trying to revive it again. So for those who've enjoyed Veronica Mars, do go down to the links at the bottom of the post to add your signature! Hopefully, we'll collect enough to change the minds of the producers.
