This weeks JBC campaign - Stock the Shelves

Because of the release of the Season 2 DVD - at long last! - this week's JBC campaign will be a repeat of the previous Stock the Shelves. They are asking that, instead of contacting TV stations, you instead contact your local library and retail stores requesting that they carry LotS.

"As history shows, DVD sales can be quite effective when it comes to the revival of a canceled TV series. Family Guy, Futurama, and several other shows were saved mainly due to high DVD sells, and I'm not the only one who thinks they can be helpful to our cause.

With this in mind, the JBC supported the DVD drive a few months back with the first Stock the Shelves Week. This week, with the release of the Season 2 DVD, it is time for Stock The Shelves Week 2.


Instead of contacting TV stations, this week you will be contacting your local Library and major retailers in your area to request that they stock the Legend of the Seeker Season 1 & 2 DVDs. Our goal is not only to drive up LotS DVD sales, showing the suits that there is profit to be made, but to widen the fanbase and build our numbers.

Unfortunately most international fan will not be able to participate in this week's JBC, so we're asking all those who can't to redo last week's JBC. Fans living in Germany and France are able to participate. Anyone else who wishes to continue with the regular JBC as well may also redo last week, but we ask that you participate this week as well since this is a very important campaign.

Contact Information

Since we can't provide everyone a link to their local Library's website, we ask that once this week you take the time to Google "*Your Town and State* Public Library" and find the contact information on their website. If you're lucky, you'll find email information, and/or a contact form. If not, you'll have to call them to make the request. The number should be located on the website, if not try a phonebook or look on Google. You may do the same for any major retailers located near you.

I'd like to suggest the purchase of Season 2 DVDs of "Legend of the Seeker".

if they don't have S1]

"Legend of the Seeker" is produced by Disney-ABC and is loosely based on the
best selling series "The Sword of Truth" by Terry Goodkind. Starring Craig Horner,
Bridget Regan, Tabrett Bethell, Bruce Spence and Craig Parker, and filmed against
the backdrop of beautiful New Zealand, the series is a high quality production as many
cast & crew were part of the production of "Lord of the Rings."

'Legend of the Seeker' is an Emmy Award Winner for “Outstanding Music Composition
for a TV Series” (2009), and has Emmy Nomination for “Outstanding Main Title Theme
Music” (2010).

Thank you in advance for your attention.

Best regards,"

This drive runs in conjunction with our plea for everyone to buy the DVD, however and from whereever, they can.
Remember, big enough DVD sales is a huge factor in helping us to get another season and this is what we are fighting for!

Us international fans, with the exception of France and Germany the lucky devils, may not be able to participate but we can buy the DVD for ourselves and our families.
So let's work together to get those DVD sales as high as we possibly can and help to Save Our Seeker!
