The TV scriptwriter: you 

Modern Marketing reports in its ‘Open Source TV’ post that Showtime’s is welcoming for a story it will film. Fans are given a scenario and asked to come up with a script. Prizes are on offer, and it’s helped strengthen the series’ fan base. The link to FanLib’s L Word initiative is here.
    will head in this direction more and more. The fans are out there, and have been sharing fan fiction for as long as the web has been around. For those wondering just how that medium will change, I say this is the clearest indicator, coupled with -connected television shows that encourage two-way interaction.

Similar idea to the Snakes on a Plane signature line that was added based on fan input (see Rick Klau's post: http://www.rklau.com/tins/archives/2006/03/23/snakes_on_a_plane_hollywood_reporter_catches_the_fever.php ) This two-way interaction is such a great idea that I wonder why it isn't more widely adopted.  
Hi Andrea: I didn’t know about this addition! It is a great idea. To think I took part in it in some little way!
   What is interesting to me is how the Google hits for this phrase have been going up and down and up again on news that New Line is working with fans and incorporating more of what they (we? I never considered myself part of the audience but for the copies of Lucire in the seat pockets!) want. This was at 96,900 in mid-January with the initial media and blogosphere interest to nearly half a million by the end of the month. However, in February it dipped, from 380,000 on the 5th to half that by mid-month. Now, as a result of this latest development (I assume), it has risen to 877,000—oh, and the mainstream media now know about it, finally! (Incidentally, please don’t think I regularly track Google phrases!)

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
