This is a long overdue e-mail to thank you for taking such a proactive interest in all things Destination Truth! We try to make DT stand alone from SciFi's other investigative programs by presenting a unique blend of travel, humor, adventure, and investigation. Its success owes much to people like you who've helped spread the word and promote our global shenanigans. Furthermore, on a personal note, it's really encouraging to see your support and it means a great deal to both me and my team.
I would love to do an interview for the fan site and we should absolutely nail down a time to do that. Thanks again for your support, Amanda...I owe you a beer.

Hey, buuuddy! Okay, no more Pauly Shore impressions, I promise haha. This is a little bit of a long-winded email (about 4 to 6 paragraphs), but bear with me :) Thanks so much for the email. Totally didn't expect it at all, let alone this soon.
On the positive end of that spectrum, it gives me more time to commit to getting the word out about this show. I'm so surprised at the reaction to what I just started out doing for fun with a little website and some viral videos. I love the show SO much and I love getting the fans involved even more. One of my favorite parts of the day is working on the site and staying in touch with my own DT fan crew online.
I think the consensus is that a lot of us adore the show so much because we have never had the privelage to go overseas, and let's face it - times are shitty right now and everyone needs a good laugh to cushion the blow. So far, with the site, I've created a bunch of polls to get feedback from the fans on what they want from promo for the new season. I have the results on me at any point, if you or any of the other producers want them.
For me, it's great because I really wanted to create some sort of clothing or accessory line for the fan site. Thus far, all I have is a roll of stickers that I'm just going to send out to other proactiv fans for free, but it's definitely a start! Mostly though, the fans are dying for either a boxset and more chances to reach out to the DT crew. Again, this is based on poll results thus far.
ANYTIME you have free for an interview...is certainly appreciated...Your fans, including me, are anxious to get to know you more from where you're coming from and your interests (other than movies, archeaology, world traveling, and the ever-present Indiana Jones comparisons).
Let me just take the time to thank YOU, myself. You provide your fans with endless entertainment when they are going through rough times and a chance to step into an environment filled with hearty laughs and imagination, even if just for an hour. It's not every day that a fan can open up her Inbox and find a personal email from her favorite celebrity/TV personality there.
I hope the site not only provides an outlet for the fans, but provides for a good ego boost for you, if you ever even *have* time to feel down haha!
Keep it real, "MC White Rice!" Your very happy fan - Amanda
