Why aren’t you making another season of Caprica?
“We would have loved to but the fact is, there have not been enough viewers to support another season. We can only afford to make shows if enough people watch them.”
Syfy says that there were not enough viewers to support airing Caprica. Now is your chance to prove them wrong. Although they helped to fund Caprica, Syfy does not profit from DVD sales. The divisions of NBC Universal that will profit from DVD sales are Universal Cable Productions (UCP) and Universal Studios Home Entertainment (USHE). Universal Cable Productions produced Caprica. Universal Studios Home Entertainment released the DVDs.
Syfy were the ones who pulled the plug on Caprica. With your encouragement UCP and USHE can push the plug back in.
Syfy refuses to acknowledge the over 1 million viewers in support of Caprica. Being powerful decision-makers within NBC Universal, UCP and USHE could turn the tide. They could independently produce a successful Caprica movie. They could push Syfy to fund a second season of Caprica.
By purchasing Caprica DVDs you will send a message to UCP and USHE that Syfy is wrong.
Now is our chance to give Syfy some hard, honest numbers to swallow. If you do not want to contribute to them directly, ask for Caprica DVDs as part of your winter wish list.
