  • What started as a fan-project for Zoey M. became something more. It ended up becoming an extraordinary journey for her and fellow Cortexifans around the world.
  • Word about the #WhereIsPeterBishop video project was spread throughout Twitter, Tumblr, forums, and various FRINGE Facebook fan groups. The request was simple - fan picture submissions from as many different places/landmarks as possible, featuring the message, "Where Is Peter Bishop?"
  • Over 500 photos from 37 countries were submitted.
  • Ari Margolis, even became involved by taking #WIPB pictures of John Noble, Jasika Nicole and Joshua Jackson.

Keep it positive toward networks and production.

Interact with other fandoms in a respectful manner.

Involve the fans in the creative and promotion process.

Make the advertisers and sponsors aware that fans see their commercials and placement.

Quantify our results with data and analysis.

A Guide to Fringe Renewal Through the Advancement of Social Media was established, in order to overcome “Nielsen Invisibility.”

television transformation
Television Transformation
  • The Television industry is changing. Social Television is the buzz word among networks.
  • This is because of the emergence of people using a “second scree” during TV show viewing.
  • Networks are investigating the benefits of including the audience more in shaping the shows that they watch.
  • “Fans believe they have power to influence business of TV. And they’re demonstrating that they DO have that power.” – Christy Tanner, TV Guide.

Did We Save Both Universes?
  • This renewal was the result of love and dedication from many different people.
  • Like a strong strand of DNA, various little things had to line up and zip together in order to make the 13 episode pick-up a reality.
  • There is no doubt that love expressed in a very vocal, positive and quantifiable manner, played a large part.
  • FOX and Warner Brothers worked very hard to make a deal that worked for them as businesses.
  • Folks in the media that believed in the show and fans helped a lot! (Love for Damian Holbrook and Marissa Roffman, especially.)
