Disney exec responds positively to fan letters

May 17, 2010

An interesting discussion came up on the LOTS.org forum (and the Confessor and Seeker Society forum). It appears that Al Ertzberger, Executive Director, Disney ABC Domestic Television, Affiliate Relations is replying to fan snail mail with a response similar to the following:

Dear Legend of the Seeker Fan:

Thank you for being a dedicated viewer of our show. We appreciate your letter and are pleased to know that you greatly enjoy the show.

We are proud of our entire cast and production crew. They’ve done an incredible job of bringing Terry Goodkind’s novels to television.

We share your hope that Legend of the Seeker’s audience will continue to grow and more seasons to come. To that end, we invite you to share your enthusiasm for Legend of the Seeker with all your friends and family.

Al Ertzberger
Executive Director
Disney ABC Domestic Television
Affiliate Relations
500 S. Buena Vista Street
Burbank, CA 91521

Now, keep in mind that Al is in charge of Affiliate Relations. There are MANY people at Disney and ABC Studios who are involved with the management and promotion of the show. It’s highly doubtful they are all completely equally aware of the show’s status. On the other hand, there is nothing in the message that says there will be a third season of the show.

The letter makes no promises but does offer encouragement to fans to continue sharing their love for the show. Please don’t read too much into this. Still, know that we do have some friends at Disney. Some fans have been getting angry with Disney lately and, frankly, I can sympathize. But Disney is making business decisions like everyone else in the industry. We just need to show them that the best decision is to bring the show back for more seasons.

ABC Studios and Disney, we hear you. Do you hear us?

NOTE: I’ll try to add a link to the Confessor and Seeker Society post later when I get more time.


  1. At least it’s encouraging! Will b sending much more out! Snail mail must b the way 2 go,which surprises me. Whatever works 2 get our S3!! #saveourseeker!!

  2. thanks for the update, but isnt this a generalized response that ABC Disney sent when we first started sending letters?

    sounds like they just send them away without caring about the fans and giving hope that might be false…. they meed to update their copy paste program….

    we are getting noticed though so lets keep on fighting! i want my seeker back for another season!

  3. This is the same letter they’ve been sending all year in reply to our letters. So I don’t know if I’d take that as a sign or not. I got the same one in march with a 3D card of Richard. I think they just haven’t changed the form letter. Hopefully this is a good sign, but I’d guess it’s just a sign of not needing too since it makes no promises about S3.
