io9.com recognizes our efforts, and tells us not to give up!

Like the embattled resistance against Skynet, fans of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles have refused to surrender. They’ve rented a mobile billboard for the canceled Fox show this week. And now producer James Middleton tells io9 there’s reason for hope.

Thanks to the wonderful people over at io9.com, and the love of Mr. James Middleton, we know we will have hope, and we want to remind everyone to NOT give up!!!!

They also included a video of the mobile billboard, so head on over there, and comment on their awesome post for us! Click HERE

Billboard Wrap up, and news from Save the scc

The billboard run wrapped up yesterday evening in Los Angeles and we’ve got the pre-movie ads’ two week run starting tomorrow. (And “Is Sarah Connor There?” today!)

So, a quick summary. If you haven’t yet, you can see pictures of the billboard here and here, and a video of it on the streets here.

It also got some coverage from a few SciFi blogs…

SCIFI Wire:

In one of the more innovative fan campaigns seen in recent years, they’ve got themselves a mobile “Bring Back The Sarah Connor Chronicles” billboard that they’re driving around Los Angeles to get some attention (which clearly worked, at least in our case). Presumably they make sure it frequently circles the Warner Brothers Studio lot, since WB produced the show.

SciFi Block:

Save the Sarah Connor Chronicles is a group of fans dedicated to the revival of the recently canceled Terminator TV spinoff, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. The Billboard reads “No fate but what we make,” “Bring back the Sarah Connor Chronicles,” and “Take back the future.” This comes the day before the release of the series’ second, and supposedly final, season is released on DVD and Blu-ray.

Slice of SciFi:

As the second season of “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” debuts on DVD and Blu Ray this week, a group of passionate fans want to see more of the show at some point in the future.

SciFi Scoop:

Fox canceled Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles almost six months ago now, but fans have refused to give up. If you’re a fan of the show and haven’t added your weight to the various campaigns designed to convince Fox to overturn their decision, then let me suggest now’s the time to join the party.

The freakin’ big push, is FREAKIN’ BIG news!

Every is taking notice in all the hard work that we’ve been doing. Check this link out over at Scifiwire.

Fans of Fox’s canceled Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles haven’t given up trying to get some kind of continuation going for their show. It looks like they’ve temporarily abandoned the idea of finding a network to give the series a third season and instead are now pushing for a DVD movie.

In one of the more innovative fan campaigns seen in recent years, they’ve got themselves a mobile “Bring Back The Sarah Connor Chronicles” billboard that they’re driving around Los Angeles to get some attention (which clearly worked, at least in our case). Presumably they make sure it frequently circles the Warner Brothers Studio lot, since WB produced the show.

The truck is part of the well-orchestrated and nicely named “Freaking Big Push” the fans are staging in September and October, which coincides with the release of TSCC season two on DVD on Tuesday. If they can actually help, ahem, drive sales of the show on DVD, our guess is the studio might actually give them their DVD movie.

Here’s a video from Save the SCC of the billboard

Also check out some pictures of the billboard at SavetheScc’s Flickr

The Ever Awesome @HadleyK on Twitter mentioned the billboard in a post on his site right here

And the site Scifiblock also mentioned the billboard in an article here

The Billboard, DVD, and new podcast to come

So we’re back! and better than ever! Sorry about the long wait, but we are finally back! We will be releasing a podcast here within the next few days, so hope you guys are still listening. Well, here’s a little news from save the scc, in case you didn’t know……

The routing for the billboard has been finalized and sent to Atomic for the three day run next week. Don’t worry…we’ll have staff out on the street getting footage of it! And if you’re in the L.A. area, why not head out and see if you can catch it on the streets?

Route 1

This route will be driven on Mon 9/21 and Wed 9/23.
Target hours: 9am-5pm.

Studio’s driven by on this route are Universal, WARNER BROTHERS (and WB offices), NBC and Disney/ABC.

Route 2

This route will be driven on Tues 9/22.
Target hours: 11am-7pm

This takes the billboard through areas that TPTB will likely spend free time in the afternoon/evening, as well as heavily trafficked shopping, tourist areas. Also along this route are CBS, E!, Variety and CNN.

Also, the DVD will be coming out on Tuesday, September 22nd, so make sure (if you haven’t already pre-ordered your dvd) to hit the streets and buy buy buy! DVD sales are gonna be a huge part in catching the eye of the WB, so make sure to go out and support our favorite show!
