"I’ve been reading the discussion over the past few days about the fate of HarpersGlobe.com, and wanted to quickly chime in with some insights for all of you. First, I’d truly like to thank each and every one of you for making this site and this community what it is. I came to this project almost a year ago, excited by the opportunity to tell a story, engage a community and inspire interactivity. I don’t think I ever anticipated the level of engagement, creativity, and discussion that has occurred over the past 16 weeks; it has been genuinely inspiring.
We all (cast, crew, the community, moderators, producers, etc.) have put a tremendous amount of blood, sweat and tears into building this project (both literally and figuratively). And our hope on the production end has always been to keep this site, this community, and this show alive for years to come. I personally have really enjoyed working with CBS and the production team behind “Harper’s Island” --everyone associated with this series has put their heart and soul into the production, and in this day and age, it’s fortunate to be able to see a series have the opportunity to air on network television in its entirety, from beginning to end. That being said, the TV series does not have a new season on the horizon. Although admittedly there is the awkward predicament of figuring out how the site would live outside of the TV series, we are currently in discussion with CBS to figure out how best to keep HarpersGlobe.com alive.
To reiterate, all of you are tremendously important and none of your time, work or relationships built on this community site have been in vein. Please bear with us while we figure out the strategy and answer to the “exact fate of Harper’s Globe.” Please know our goal at EQAL is to keep this site alive and keep this great community prospering."
