How to save 'Awake' on Thursday

On June 7th 2012 (this Thursday), we will again campaign to save 'Awake'. The problem we have had in our previous campaigns is that things have been too complex/cost money, which alienated participants. Therefore, in this part of the campaign, we are keeping things simple.

You can help save 'Awake' by sending handwritten letters to NBC. By using handwritten letters instead of emails, it makes it look like we have gone to more effort, and NBC will take more notice of them. Don't put anything too dramatic in your letter, like 'I will just die if I never see 'Awake' again' or 'If you don't bring back 'Awake', I'll never watch NBC again!', because NBC will just dismiss these. The best thing to do is write an anecdote about how 'Awake' has become a part of your life, and how you will miss it if it isn't brought back. Comment on the acting/directing/writing of the show, give praise to the people who are a part of it - this will help NBC to see the mistake they have made.

Also, either on the back of your letter or on a separate piece of paper, draw a penguin. If you have kids (or a little brother/sister), get them to draw one, too! Send this to NBC with your letter.

NBC's address: 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY 10112, United States.

Remember, it's this Thursday!

We can do it. Together we can save 'Awake'.


  1. A young Robert De Niro, that's who Detective Britten looks like. Such a great actor too. We have to save this show!

  2. I'm sorry to say it, but the show is gone. It's time to face that fact. What we should be campaigning for is a DVD release, which there has been no mention of so far from the higher-ups that made the decision to pull the plug on the show.
