While it is certainly unclear as to whether or not “The Secret Circle” is going to find a way to survive on another network, the fans are at least doing just about everything in their power to make their voices heard — and even are giving back in the process.
As a part of the “Save the Circle” campaign to bring the show to MTV, fans have been donating to the Make-a-Wish foundation in the network’s name in hopes of getting the network’s attention. Overall, this campaign has generated over a $7,500 — including a rather generous donation of $5,100 courtesy of one anonymous fan.
So how did this donation come about? The campaign to donate money caught the attention of executive producer Andrew Miller, who decided to auction off a poster of the show signed by himself and some select cast members — with all of the proceeds going to the charity.
Miller communicated with this donor not long after the auction ended, and he had the following to say about it after the fact on Twitter:
“After talking to the anonymous donor who gave $5100 to MAW, it only confirms that TSC fans are the most loyal, creative and very generous.”
While we still think it is ultimately unlikely that MTV (despite some pretty bad struggles with “Punk’d” and “The Pauly D Project”) will pick the show up (as ABC Family seems to be a more likely candidate), you certainly have to admire the gumption and dedication of the fans for making this happen — and there’s also nothing wrong with holding out hope. (After all, “TSC” was the third-highest-rated show on The CW’s 2011-12 schedule in total viewers and the 18-49 demographic, though it did decline near the end.) Even if the plan doesn’t work out at all, at least some money is being sent over to a good cause.
