Note of Appreciation for Marlene King
Posted by VersusTheFans
For those of you who don’t know, Marlene King is the show runner of the hit series on ABC Family, Pretty Little Liars. With its Season 3 finale, it became the first TV show that was tweeted about over a million times during the airing of the show.
The show was also renewed for its fourth AND fifth seasons and will have a spin-off show starting in the fall. If any show has learned how to use social media to it’s advantage, it’s Pretty Little Liars. Not to mention, Pretty Little Liars is a well-written show with strong female characters and the inclusion of diverse, three dimensional characters that is seamless and equal.
Pretty Little Liars and its fandoms have such an inclusive, community feeling. That starts from the top, with Marlene King. And here is what she is up to today:
Not only is Marlene strengthening the community (and therefore support) surrounding her show, she’s also setting the tone for the community and energy she wants surrounding her show. It’s her innate understanding that fandom IS the safest place some people have to land that makes her efforts special. Positivity goes a long way, and that is what she offers up here; no fan manipulation or ship wars necessary.
Pretty incredible way to treat fans, who after all, are the life blood of the show. No wonder Pretty Little Liars continues to be so successful.
