How’s this for a last minute push? WONKAÂ®, maker of NERDSÂ® candies, will soon be making a very special delivery to executives at NBC: more than 1,000 packs of NERDS (the candy, not the people) in support of Chuck!
The idea to send NERDS came from co-creator and producer Josh Schwartz in an interview with The New York Timesâ€™ Dave Itzkoff published April 20. In it, Schwartz suggests fans of the show send NERDS to NBC, similar to the peanuts sent by CBSâ€™ â€œJerichoâ€ fans when that show was in danger.
â€œWe agreed with Josh that a bunch of NERDS could make a big difference for â€˜Chuck,â€™ and that nothing could be more appropriate,â€ said Tricia Bowles, spokesperson, NestlÃ© Confections & Snacks. â€œWeâ€™re showing our support for the showâ€™s cast, crew, viewers and Nerd Herds everywhere, and we hope fans continue to do the same.â€
Cute, right? Here are a couple of photos of Zac and Josh joining in the fun. NBC will announce the fate of Chuck on Monday, May 4th. If you haven’t already subscribed to our RSS feed and/or followed us on Twitter, this would be a good time to do so to get the news right away.
