Fans of the canceled CBS freshman drama Moonlight are planning to hold a rally outside the gate of Warner Bros. studio in Burbank, Calif., on Friday, May 23 at 2 p.m. P.T., to thank the studio, cast and crew for the series and to possibly motivate another network to pick up the series.
Lisa Gerry of Lakewood, Calif., who sent out a notice about the rally, said it is to “support Warner Bros., Silver Pictures (go producer) and Moonlight, and is not a protest against CBS.”
She said Moonlight fans from around the country had originally planned to fly to Los Angeles during the Memorial Day weekend to attend “MoonlightCon 2008” until the show was not renewed by CBS during its upfront scheduling announcement for next season on May 14. So now there are plans for the rally instead.
Moonlight fans are also sponsoring have an ad to run in both The Hollywood Reporter (May 21) and Variety (May 22). Gerry said the ads have the same purpose as the rally, to motivate another network to pick up the series.
