Fans Are Hot About Roswell
Fans of The WB’s freshman teen alien series Roswell are mounting a unique campaign to save the show from cancellation: mailing miniature bottles of Tabasco sauce to WB executives. The spicy condiment is featured prominently in the show, and Tabasco maker McIlhenny Co. has co-sponsored fan gatherings in the past.
A WB spokeswoman said the network has received more than 100 of the tiny bottles, with more coming in daily. Fans also plan to purchase an ad in the trade paper Variety on April 6. (Fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer last year purchased a full-page ad in the paper to protest The WB’s decision to delay the airing of two controversial episodes.)
Roswellians have created a Web site to organize the “Roswell Is Hot” campaign to persuade The WB to pick up the show for a second season. Fans mounted the effort after The WB renewed Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, but not Roswell. Fans are also worried about the network’s plans to move the show to a Monday 9 p.m. time slot on April 10 from its current Wednesday 9 p.m. slot.
The effort has apparently caught the attention of the show’s creators. Star Jason Behr has written fans saying, “Thank you for all of your e-mails, letters and (apparently) bottles of Tabasco sauce! To paraphrase Mark Twain–rumors of our demise have been greatly exaggerated! We all welcome the change from Wednesday to Monday night, and we look forward to your continued support in our new time slot.”
