Are you involved in any online blogging/journalism about media and/or TV Shows?
Are you a contributor or part of a media/television news-site that regularly conducts actor/production interviews?
Are you a fan of the Canadian/British television series Murdoch Mysteries?
If you answered 'why yes' to any of these questions, the Murdoch Mysteries PR is looking to fans of the show to help promote the show. Word of mouth is, as always, the best form of publicity. And yes - there is a gift economy involved, in terms of getting exclusive opportunities and swag from the PR.
Now, you'd think I'd feel skeevy about imploring my fellow Murdoch Mysteries fans to doing free PR for a TV show, but I say it all depends on the show and production.
Murdoch Mysteries is funded by CTV (Canada) and UKTV (the UK). It hasn't yet crossed over into the large-scale US audiences, and this is a shame. The show is, quite simply, brilliant. It has its ups and downs, but that's all shows. I can't express how delightful it is to have a series that is a well-written, historical fiction mystery show which takes place in Toronto, Canada. The characters are adorable and the show blends a great mix of drama, mystery, comedy, romance, history and (Canadian brand) excitement in a very winsome package.
I want more people to watch this show. I really want it to gain popularity. I want, like, a million seasons of this show, forever. :D
