What We're Doing?
Our initial goal was to get at-least 100 Fans to MAIL a letter to Cartoon Network Studios, but now we won't stop sending in letters until Tower Prep is back on the air. (Emailing was encouraged as well, though it won't get Cartoon Network's attention as much as a physically typed/written letter that people took the time to mail in)
Early last year, two long running soap operas we're cancelled, but due to fans mailing in physical mail and expressing their concerns for their beloved show, BOTH of them we're picked back up.
WE can do the same for Tower Prep, a show that has only been on air ONE SEASON, as compared to the soap operas that have been on for 40+ years, Cartoon Network will definitely give us what we want.
Expected visit date for the President of Nickelodeon is Wednesday, April 11th, 2012.
To the President of Nickelodeon,
We collectively speak on behalf of the entire Tower Prep audience and all those that are involved in the fight to save our show; we humbly welcome you to our website.
Our goal here was to set a community of loyal Tower Prep viewers and fans to participate in a letter campaign to show our numbers in the eyes of Cartoon Network, but now we see that has changed. In the spirit of the fans of the television show ‘Family Guy’ that was cancelled after three seasons, but after a letter campaign of 200+ letters mailed to FOX, they regrouped and picked the series back up and right now, Family Guy has been running for 10 seasons strong. (cite: Series creator Seth McFarlarne) We find continued strength in our movement by the result of this.
Every one of us here are long time viewers of Nickelodeon which is why we present this to you. October 10th, 2010 was a great day in television history, as a live action series that has what viewers want to sit down and watch straight through had premiered. I mention this because it aired on Cartoon Network and since the season finale on December 28th, 2010, it has not aired a new episode yet it has grown in its fan base’s numbers.
Tower Prep is a mystery series similar to House of Anubis, that follows a teen, Ian Archer, following an incident where he defended a friend from a being beaten up, and is punished with detention by a teacher who saw the situation in a different light. Feeling misunderstood also by his parents, he mysteriously wakes up at a school that is later revealed to be located in remote unexplored peninsula. This show gave us an hour every Tuesday at 9pm to sit with our friends and families to solve the mysteries of What's Really Going on at Tower Prep. Every episode was a new mystery that stemmed from the main mystery of the series.
We’re not involved in this movement because we’re “upset over our favorite show not being on the air”, we simply want to see the compelling story of Tower Prep continue because it has enormous potential to become a cult hit in the right hands, which Nickelodeon has proven itself to be time and time again.
We realize now that Cartoon Network is unwilling to sell the rights of the show to another network and refuses to issue an official release on the status of Tower Prep, although at this point it’s all but obvious. The network would reply to our letters with general responses stating the plight of low ratings and the series not returning enough profit. One would think that actual posted (stamped and mailed) letters from kid viewers, and just as important, parents who have watched and enjoyed the show with their kids, might show the network that the series is missed. It is public knowledge, at least to the press, that Cartoon Network gave up on the show before it even began because of the ratings they received from a previous newly created live-action show that year.
This message is really to ask you and your team to broker a deal with Cartoon Network to obtain the rights to show, re-air past episodes and produce a new season. They refuse to turn over the rights back to the show's creator, Paul Dini, even the rights to make a novel series to continue the story. Because Tower Prep was taken off of Cartoon Network's website, the only place you can get limitless information on the premise of the show is to visit www.towerprep.wikia.com, a fan created wikipedia-format database on everything related to Tower Prep. I know what we are asking of you and your network may not be an easy task but you will absolutely not regret it and would absolutely profit substantially from it. The combined audience of current Nickelodeon viewers with that carried over from those who follow Tower Prep on Cartoon Network, would bring a ratings and viewership boost not only to the demographic that follows House of Anubis, but attributed to that of the other programs already on the network.
To date, though the numbers of those that are involved in the letter campaign are not what we have hoped, those active on the website are not what we have hoped, and those following Tower Prep’s status since the last episode have dwindled, we have not much to show except for the continued strides in mailing in countless letters to the both Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon Studios. But attaining the rights to the show, and running previous episodes of the first season on your network, would see the boasted numbers increase dynamically. On top of that, as of 2011, Tower Prep began airing in Australia, Africa and South America, which means now there is an international following anticipating the possibility of a second season. Also HBO Family airs episodes of Tower Prep weekly at an undetermined time, but can usually be caught on Mondays and Tuesdays.
It should be noted, that we keep tabs on all the actors of the main and recurring cast of Tower Prep and none of them have signed any long term contracts that would cause a conflict in them participating in a new season. Not because they aren’t talented, that is the complete opposite; it’s the mere fact that the number of current and aspiring actors currently in Los Angeles makes it harder for those with experience to showcase their talents even more. Research and statistics prove this.
But in order to make a decision on moving forward with this message, I know you must first see the material for yourself. The complete first season of Tower Prep is available on iTunes. The show’s creator Paul Dini (Lost, and many re-incarnations of the DC Comics universe) encourages and supports our pursuit of a second season from Cartoon Network, but our fight has led you, The President of Nickelodeon, to our site where we hope your understanding the enormous potential this show has will allure you to breathe life back into this amazing work of art.

Dear Cartoon Network,
My name is [PUT YOURNAME HERE] I am an long time viewer of the network and fan of Tower Prep. October 10th, 2010 was a great day in television history, as a live action series that has what viewers want to sit down and watch straight through had premiered. I would like to thank you so much for picking up Tower Prep. It was created and written by a wonderfully brilliant team, performed by an excellent group of actors and put together by a superb crew.
Please don't give up on this show, Cartoon Network, Unnatural History may have not had the privilege of seeing a second season, but Tower Prep certainly is worth it the time and money. Even if you just renew it for one more season so the story wraps, we will be very satisfied and know it will be completely worthwhile. Please give us back the show we sat down and watched with our families and tried to solve the mysteries if What's Really Going on at Tower Prep.
And if you're worried about viewers don't be. You would be amazed at the numbers of fan sites and fan forums on the web dedicated to Tower Prep, even since December 26th, 2010 and i'm not just talking about a post here and there, I'm talking about hundreds and hundreds of posts leading towards thousands, and that's just online. We haven't gone to street talk as yet. Thank you and we hope you give this show another chance.
Thank you for listening.

The letter below is to go to Nickelodeon.
My name is [PUT YOURNAME HERE] I am a long time viewer of the network and fan of the television show Tower Prep. October 10th, 2010 was a great day in television history, as a live action series that has what viewers want to sit down and watch straight through had premiered. I mention this because it aired on Cartoon Network and since the season finale on December 28th, 2010, it has not aired a new episode yet it has grown in fan base numbers.
Tower Prep is a mystery show similar to House of Anubis, which I watch and anticipate every episode of, that follows a teen who mysteriously wakes up at a prep school that is later revealed to be located in remote unexplorered peninsula. This show gave us an hour every Tuesday at 9pm to sit with our friends and families to solve the mysteries if What's Really Going on at Tower Prep. Every episode was a new mystery that stemmed from the main mystery of the series.
This letter is really to ask you to make a deal with Cartoon Network to obtain the rights to show. They refuse to turn over the rights back to the show's creator, Paul Dini, even the rights to make a novel series to continue the story. There is a huge number of us that began a letter campaign and sent them to Cartoon Network pleading our case but they did not get back to us. Because Tower Prep was taken off of Cartoon Network's website, the only place you can get limitless information on the premise is to visit www.towerprep.wikia.com, a fan created wikipedia-like database on everything Tower Prep. I know what i am asking of your network may not be an easy task but you will absolutely not regret it. I promise will dedicate my viewership to Nickelodeon for the rest of my life. Please do not disregard this letter as a teens hope to see their favorite show back on again. Tower Prep means way more than that.
Since then we have kept tabs on the actors of the main and recurring cast they have not signed any long term contracts that would cause a conflict in them participating in a new season. And if you're worried about viewers don't be. You would be amazed at the numbers of fan sites and fan forums on the web dedicated to Tower Prep, even since December 26th, 2010, and i'm not just talking about a post here and there, I'm talking about hundreds and hundreds of posts leading towards thousands, and that's just online. There is a massive audience that still exists out there dedicated to Tower Prep. Combined with the fan base it would already bring and the fan base that exists for House of Anubis as well it will definitely become a hit faster than you could hope. I swear it would be a worthwhile investment that will pay off for your network entirely. Thank you for listening, we hope you could give this show life again, and to hear from you soon.
