More on Reaper Syndication Talks

We can't confirm, but Nick C is thought to be an industry insider whose predictions about the business end of things often turn out to be true. He says at his blog, Reaper To Live On (?)  http://nickctv.wordpress.com/2009/05/22/reaper-to-live-on/

"It appears the show will be living on via a very likely syndication package deal with fellow ABC Studios syndicated show THE LEGEND OF THE SEEKER (LOTS) from Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi (Xena, Hercules).  LOTS is the top syndicated scripted program in the states and does well in over seas sales." He says so much more, including that Tyler's new show, Sons of Tucson, got put back to midseason to wait on Reaper's fate, that there is contention between ABC Studios and The CW's Dawn Ostroff about the CW mishandling Reaper, and more!

He also agrees with the strategy we've been promoting here, to write to our CW affiliates in support of Reaper! Details on that here: http://community.livejournal.com/reaperdmv/46180.html. Let's hope he truly is an insider and is right right right!

I agreed with everything he said in that article except for his jabs at Tyler, lol.

Sock makes the show! XD

I also love how ABC Studios thinks the CW is full of shit and dropped the ball with Reaper, because that's been my opinion for a while. (It should have been hyped more, aired alongside Supernatural, and WTF at putting it up against AI this season?)

Nick C tweeted with this:

"I'm not a CW affiliate or tied to Tribune. ABC mentioned a campaign but I suggest increasing output. #savereaper"

linear_flower, most faithful fan, and everyone else, write in! We're suggesting looking up your CW affiliate and try to identify the Regional Manager for your area. I'm researching the role of the "Tribune" he mentions; will post when we know more.

Here is where you will find a list of Tribune owned CW affiliates: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tribune_Broadcasting#Television_stations

Every affiliate matters, but especially if you live in one of these markets, please contact your CW station and tell them you want them to purchase Reaper from ABC Studios. These are the markets that will save the show:

Dallas/Ft. Worth
Miami/Ft. Lauderdale
St. Louis
Salem/Portland, Or
Bloomington, IN
Kokomo, IN
Waterbury, CT
New Orleans
