How many pounds of snack food does it take to get a canceled show back on the air? No, scratch that. How about: How many fans can The Black Donnellys have, let alone fans willing to spend money on snack food to save the show?
Whoever he or she may be, someone is taking a cue from the Jericho campaign, in which folks got CBS to revive the series by sending the network tens of thousands of pounds of peanuts, and planning to ship 45,000 Zesta crackers to HBO in hopes that the pay channel will pick up the show that NBC dumped.Zesta crackers apparently look like the cracker featured on a lounge sign on Donnellys, a serial drama about four Irish brothers and organized crime in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen. The crackers people think the show, from Crash‘s (and Walker: Texas Ranger‘s) Paul Haggis is a better fit on the no-holds barred premium channel.
As of yesterday, the lonely Donnellys people says they’ve received $1,039 in donations “which can purchase 55,413 (346 lbs) crackers.”
