Just hours after MTV Logo announced that they were going to bring their hit series "Noah's Arc" to the silver screen, a petition was started online to keep "Noah's Arc" the television series.
After NPR reported that MTV Logo confirmed a third season, a questionable press release was issued the next announcing a "Noah's Arc" movie.
Actors on the show did confirm that they had been told recently that the show was cancelled.
Supporters of bringing "Noah's Arc" back for a third season are hopeful that the petition will gather enough signatures to change Logo's decision to cancel what many feel is its most popular show.
Below CLIK Magazine staff writer Clay Cane spoke with Steven Fisher in Logo Communications and Public Affairs.
CLIK: Some are saying the show is canceled and race is involved. Steven Fisher: This network is built on a foundation of diversity. We’re so proud of the show that’s why we’re taking it to the movies, it takes it to the next level, it helps us find who the whole audience is. This is great news—if you saw in the press release Patrik is as excited as we are.
CLIK: Noah’s Arc is the number one rated show on Logo, but your ratings aren’t really traditional and I’ve heard the DVD sales didn’t do too well. So, how is it documented that it’s the number one rated show? Steven Fisher: We’ve never said it’s the number one rated show because we’re not a rated network yet. We do anecdotally from our viewers, we see it as our most popular series, certainly visits to our web sites, it’s one of the most popular destinations online so we do see it as our most popular show. You’re right, we’re not rated, so it’s harder to gage statistically in that way, but in terms of visits to our web sites it’s our most popular show.
CLIK: According to NPR Logo confirmed there would be a third season. Steven Fisher: I think what the reporter said was that we confirmed it, which we didn’t. We said that the show would not be canceled. I think she reported there would be a third season, but we haven’t announced a third season yet. We’re doing a movie, there maybe a third season, there maybe sequels, as I explained to you before.
[Jasmyne speaking: I spoke with the producer of NPR's News&Notes and I can tell you that they said they definitely confirmed it before they reported it.]
