Once in a blue moon the TV Addict has an epiphany, a moment, a great idea that he simply has to announce to the world. Oddly enough, this weekend he had two. But only one of them is TV related — so here it goes.
Introducing The 10 TV Question Challenge™® (and yes, the name still needs work)
THE GOAL: Prior to the start of the Fall TV season, the TV Addict would like to interview each and every showrunner, giving him or her the opportunity to promote their show to the fans.
THE CATCH: Each showrunner will be emailed TEN questions. Sure it sounds simple enough, but here’s the tricky part. YOU’RE going to come up with the questions!
HOW IT WORKS Got a question for Eric Kripke? Josh Schwartz? David Eick? Bryan Fuller? Simply post away in the comments below. The tricky part is that the question shouldn’t be show specific, as we’re sending out the same ten questions to everyone. An example of a good question might be, “What’s more important, critical acclaim or mass appeal?” An example of a bad question would be, “When are they going to get off that damn island!”
You have until Friday to post a question. Next Monday you’ll have the opportunity to vote on your favorites, with the ten winning questions being sent off to the showrunners.
Short of starting your own blog, it’s pretty much your chance to play reporter. So take a moment, put on your thinking cap and help find out how serious showrunners are when it comes to promoting their shows. After-all, half the fun, or the ‘challenge’ if you will — is finding out which showrunner is going to take the time to reply.
ADDED BONUS: THE PRIZE! If your question is one of the ten that makes it to the ‘interview’, you’ll be automatically entered into a draw to win free swag from theTVaddict.com Swag Shop!. That’s a one in ten chance to win your very own McDreamy tshirt, which we know you’ve been eyeing for quite some time!
