#GirlMeetsSaturdayStream: Stream Girl Meets the Secret of Life on Saturday, Feb 25 at 6pm EST!

This Saturday (tomorrow) we’re going to stream Girl Meets the Secret of Life together. It’s the episode that introduced us to one of the biggest takeaways from the show: people change people. Girl Meets World, with its amazing characters, cast, and crew, has influenced people in numerous ways, and the fan base that has been built because of the show has also been an influential part of many people’s lives. The episode is available on Netflix for subscribers, and it can be purchased on Amazon and iTunes for $2.99. If you can afford it, we highly recommend purchasing the episode on Amazon.

The primary goal is to get the show trending with #GirlMeetsWorld, but as always we also encourage fans to take this opportunity to appeal to potential new homes for the show (Hulu and Amazon).

As a reminder, tomorrow is the last day to get in the running to win Girl Meets World swag through our #SaveGirlMeetsWorld Scavenger Hunt. It ends at 6:30 pm EST, around the time that the stream will end, so make sure you check out the post and join in before it’s too late! More information on how the winners will be chosen and posted is on the way!

Spread the word about the stream and scavenger hunt, and we’ll see you on Twitter tomorrow!

Sunday Action Plan: Share Your Favorite Season 3 Moments on Twitter using #GirlMeetsFeelings

If you haven’t heard yet, Season 3 of Girl Meets World will be released on Netflix tomorrow, February 19. Even though it has already been announced that Netflix will not be picking up Girl Meets World, this is still a great opportunity to watch the latest season again and let it remind you just how much you love the show! While you’re binging Season 3 episodes tomorrow, as well as the days following, share your all of your favorite moments, lessons, and quotes on Twitter using the tags #GirlMeetsFeelings and #GirlMeetsWorld. Our main goal is to get the show trending.

Also, make sure you’re still appealing to Hulu and Amazon. In your tweets tomorrow, tag Hulu and Amazon, and consider tailoring your message so it incorporates the respective interests of the companies. That way, the reasons why they should pick up Girl Meets World will be even more convincing. Here are some key points you could mention in your tweets:

Tweets directed toward Hulu
Twitter: @hulu@hulu_support
Hashtags: #GirlMeetsHulu #HuluSaveGMW

  • Hulu wants to expand their kid and family-oriented programming.
  • Girl Meets World could fulfill Hulu’s lack of family-friendly sitcom-style shows.
  • Hulu has preexisting streaming rights to some Disney Channel Original Series and movies.
  • Hulu could generate a lot of buzz by picking up the show, which would benefit them as they are in competition with Netflix and Amazon.

Tweets directed toward Amazon
Twitter: @Amazon, @AmazonStudios, and @AmazonKids
Hashtags: #GirlMeetsAmazon #AmazonSaveGMW

  • Girl Meets World could fill the gap that Amazon currently has in terms of providing family-friendly comedies.
  • Amazon has money to spend, especially when it comes to developing a broader international audience, which Girl Meets World has.
  • Amazon’s Head of Half-Hour Originals seems to share similar interests in aesthetic elements with Michael Jacobs, such as getting rid of a laugh track.

All of these facts and more can be found in this Hulu post and this Amazon post.

See you on Twitter tomorrow, and have fun rewatching Season 3!

#Postcards4Pluto: a new #SaveGirlMeetsWorld mail-in campaign

Most of us have sent in our paper airplanes (if you haven’t yet, you can still send in planes if you wish!), but we’re still in limbo. Ever since the cancellation, fans have been talking about using Pluto and what it means to Girl Meets World fans to appeal to potential platforms. So tonight, after you get your fire back from watching Girl Meets Creativity, we encourage you to get creative and design some #Postcards4Pluto to mail off to Disney Channel, Hulu, and Amazon. (At 34 cents, the postcard rate is cheaper than the first class mail rate most of us used to launch our airplanes!)

USPS Requirements for Post Cards:

  • Rectangular
  • At least 3-1/2 inches high x 5 inches long x 0.007 inch thick
  • No more than 4-1/4 inches high x 6 inches long x 0.016 inches thick

Here are step-by-step instructions for how to make your own postcard.

Although this will cost a bit more than mailing a physical postcard directly, if you can afford it you may find it more convenient to use these apps to design and mail a postcard from your mobile device:

Here’s where to send them:

Hulu
2500 Broadway
Santa Monica, CA 90404

Amazon Studios
1620 26th St
Suite 4000N
Santa Monica, CA 90404

Disney Channel
Attn: Gary Marsh, President
3800 W. Alameda Ave
Suite 2151
Burbank, CA 91505

If you’re not sure what to say, you can use this post about Hulu and this post about Amazon to help you make your case. For Disney Channel, as usual: express your disappointment with the cancellation and ask them to please work with any platform that may be interested in continuing Girl Meets World.

As with #Planes4GMW, please help promote the campaign by sharing photos (or screenshots) of your postcards before you mail them, using the hashtag #Postcards4Pluto.

In a few days, we’ll be posting some pre-made printables for the less creatively inclined to either print out and mail or upload into a postcard app. If you have the skills, please help us design some printable Pluto postcards (check the USPS requirements above) and submit them for others to use.

While we are pushing postcards because it’s been in the works since the beginning and it’s also a cheap and easy project for younger and international fans, BMWSequel is running a concurrent “Hope Isn’t for Suckers” campaign. For those of you who can afford it, we encourage you to participate in that one as well. If you want to double up, design a postcard with a lollipop on it or maybe even combine Pluto and lollipops somehow. Let’s get creative and #SaveGirlMeetsWorld!

#GirlMeetsFlashbackFriday: Stream Girl Meets Creativity, get #GirlMeetsWorld trending

It’s been a couple weeks since the fandom had a big “gathering” on social media. Girl Meets World is still in limbo, and we need to get our fire back! So, this Friday, February 3rd at 6pm EST, let’s all stream Girl Meets Creativity and watch together to get fired back up. The episode is available on Netflix for subscribers, and it can be purchased on Amazon and iTunes for $1.99. If you can afford it, we highly recommend purchasing the episode on Amazon.

The primary goal is to get the show trending with #GirlMeetsWorld, but as usual we also encourage fans to take this opportunity to appeal to potential new homes for the show. We’ll also be making an announcement about our next big move while we’re all watching and tweeting together.

Spread the word and we’ll see you on Twitter tomorrow!

Amazon Studios: the dark horse to #SaveGirlMeetsWorld?

When the news came that Disney Channel was officially cancelling Girl Meets World, most people immediately looked to Netflix for a rescue. Netflix has rescued more cancelled shows than any other streaming platform so far, so it’s natural that people would think of them first. In the weeks since, however, we’ve learned that Netflix is a no-go. This site has gone into detail about how Hulu is perhaps the most logical potential savior for Girl Meets World, but despite everything in our favor with Hulu there is a potential snag: the day before the Netflix news broke, Hulu CEO Mike Hopkins mentioned in an interview that they are far less likely to rescue a show for which they do not currently hold the streaming license. The hope is that Hulu’s existing business relationships with Disney-ABC Television Group along with fan support can overcome that obstacle, but the truth is they may not be able to. Which brings us to Amazon Studios. Here’s the breakdown:

  1. Amazon Studios has yet to mount a rescue of a cancelled show—in the U.S., anyway. In the UK, Amazon Studios rescued Ripper Street and continued the show for three more seasons after the BBC cancelled it. But this doesn’t mean they wouldn’t be open to the idea of saving a show stateside:
    • Other streaming companies have made waves by rescuing cancelled titles, where you have focused mostly on originals. Are you interested in taking any cast-off titles, and are there any specific ones that you’re kicking the tires on?
      We’d be open to it for the right show, but we haven’t seen it yet. Our only goal is to get the greatest shows that we can for Amazon customers and we’re very open minded as to how that can happen.” — Amazon Studios head Roy Price; Entertainment Weekly, January 2015
  2. Unlike Netflix and Hulu, there has been no “hard no” or potential no reported by the press. Netflix is off the board for sure and even though there is hope, Hulu may be unable or unwilling to overcome the streaming license issue.
  3. Speaking of streaming licenses, Amazon Video (along with iTunes) currently holds pay-per-episode/season streaming rights to both Boy Meets World and Girl Meets World.
  4. While Girl Meets World may not seem like a good fit with Amazon’s current comedy originals line-up at first glance, their head of half-hour originals is actually looking for a multi-cam and seems to share some aesthetic sensibilities with Jacobs himself:
    • So if you’re anti-sitcom, does that mean no multi-cam comedy from someone like Chuck Lorre? Or animation?
      No. In fact, it’s the opposite. You’ve caught me at a moment where I’m telling everyone that I want a multi-camera. What I don’t want is something with a laugh track. I don’t want something where you can predict where it’s going. But I’m so fortunate that I just run into the smartest people in my job. I’ve gotten to know Norman Lear over a time. You look at his shows, and there are long stretches without laughter. I think you can do that in multi-camera, and I’m actively looking for multi-cams because there’s no one taking on this tone that we’re looking for — serialized [comedy] shows.” — Joe Lewis, Amazon head of half-hour originals; Vulture, October 2016
    • “I would like to get completely rid of [the laugh track].” — Michael Jacobs; Artist Alley Podcast, June 2015
  5. Like Hulu, Amazon lacks a family-friendly comedy original with broad age-demographic appeal.
  6. While Hulu plans to expand internationally eventually, Amazon is already hard at work to position itself as a global competitor to Netflix. To that end, they’ve been throwing quite a bit of money around:
    • “Price wouldn’t say how much Amazon is paying for ‘Grand Tour,’ from Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, the former hosts of BBC’s ‘Top Gear.’ The price tag has become an industry guessing game with estimates ranging from $160 million to $250 million. ‘I would say it was expensive, but well worth it,’ he said. ‘That is a show that has a strong global following, and we’d love to have more like that.'” — Variety, December 2016
  7. While there’s no guarantee that new episodes of Girl Meets World would be available internationally immediately should Amazon Studios save the show, the service is now available internationally in more than 200 countries. In the United States, the monthly fee is $8.99 for a Prime Video subscription without the more expensive Prime membership.

We know campaign fatigue and pessimism is setting in for many, but at this point no news is still good news! Unless we get a hard no from Hulu or Amazon Studios, we can and should be appealing to them as much as we can. We know the world is now and has always been full of bigger problems than a cancelled television show, but for us at least (and probably most of you as well), trying to save a show that has something substantial to say and is beloved by millions of families around the world feels like a small and still-achievable victory. So, if you haven’t made an appeal to Amazon Studios yet, please head over to the action page and take the time to do so today. If you didn’t send Amazon Studios a paper airplane with the first wave, please do so now if you can!
