The Black Donnellys, axed by NBC, has a strange fan base. Hoping for a pick-up by HBO, they sent crackers to Carolyn Strauss, cuz the Donnelly family owns the Firecracker Lounge, and obviously, sending things that explode is a poor idea. Not that sending 400 lbs of snack food is such a winner, either.
Diego Vasquez, in Media Life “interviewed” the un-named organizer of the Save our Stinky Show campaign, who sounds robotic, although curiously well up on network-brass-ease. In fact, the same responses show up a week earlier on another spontaneous fan site.
Paul Haggis is the show’s creator.
