Summer Brooks, Farpoint Media Supervising Producer and Slice of SciFi co-host, just heard from Peter Mohan, Executive Producer of the Tanya Huff series “Blood Ties,” which aired on Lifetime this past season. What he told Summer concerns us as it relates to the show.
Lifetime TV already announced that they would not be re-airing season one of “Blood Ties” as was originally planned, before the news season was to begin in October. Now, season two on American television may be in doubt. Here is what Peter had to say on the subject:
“We’re still not sure whether or not Lifetime will be involved in a first position buy of the show, but even if they’re not, it could still carry on in Canada and the foreign markets.”
“I know you have a lot of fans in Canada and if you could rally them to write passionate letters and emails to both CITY TV and the Space Network in Canada, it would go a long way towards keeping BT [Blood Ties] alive.”
Thanks again, and I hope to speak with you soon about another season of “Blood Ties”.
On September 29th we will be re-airing the interviews we did with Tanya Huff and Peter Mohan this past summer as a way of letting folks, who may have missed it the first time, know about this great series, but we need you to help and here is how you, as fans, can do your part to try and convince the powers-that-be of the strength “Blood Ties” has with you. Get out those pens and paper or start banging away on those keyboards. All Canadian and American fans of Huff’s series need to let City TV and Space Entertainment know how much you love this show and would like to see it return, not only in Canada and every where else it is shown in the world, but particularly in the huge United States market. If the Lifetime Channel passes, there are plenty of other cable outlets that could pick it up, particulary SCI FI Channel, or USA Network,or perhaps FX. However, Lifetime needs to understand how this show is actually helping them increase their viewer base too.
