The Dresden Files, First Wave & Witchblade, plus the value of physical items to save-our-show campaigns


  • Fans of TNT’s ‘Witchblade’ sent in Pez candy dispensers, inspired by the lead character’s name, Sara Pezzini.
  • Fans of Syfy’s “The Dresden Files” sent in drumsticks to the network, inspired by lead character ‘Harry Dresden’s’ propensity to use drumsticks to cast magical spells.
  • Fans of Syfy’s “First Wave” sent in salt packets to the network. Salt acting as a weakness to the alien characters in the show.

But did any of these clever items actually move the needle, and get the show(s) saved?
