‘Moonlight’ protest

Fans of the canceled CBS freshman drama “Moonlight” are planning to hold a rally outside the gate of the Warner Bros. studio in Burbank, Calif. tomorrow at 2 p.m. to thank the studio, cast and crew for the series and possibly motivate another network to pick up the series, MediaWeek.com reports.

Lisa Gerry of Lakewood, Calif., who sent out a notice about the rally, says the event is to “support Warner Brothers, Silver Pictures and ‘Moonlight’ and is not a protest against CBS.”

She says Moonlight fans from around the country originally planned to fly to Los Angeles during the Memorial Day weekend to attend MoonlightCon 2008 until the show was not renewed by CBS during its May 14 upfront scheduling announcement for next season. Now there are plans for the rally instead.

“Moonlight” fans also are sponsoring an ad to run in the Hollywood Reporter and Variety. Miss Gerry says the ads have the same purpose as the rally — to motivate another network to pick up the series.
