Pencils sent to Media Moguls Posted December 11, 2007

The "Pencils 2 Moguls" scheme, which was backed by show runner and co-creator of "The Big Bang Theory" Bill Prady, has completed its first phase to send pencils to the big media moguls, including CBS' Les Moonves, hoping to pressure them into ending the strike.

According to United Hollywood, 500,000 pencils will now be distributed to the media moguls in a plan similar to the "Nuts for Jericho" ploy to get CBS to renew drama "Jericho" - which they indeed did, bringing the show back this season only to be interrupted by the strike.

You can still donate money for pencils to the Pencils 2 Media Moguls scheme at UnitedHollywood.com.
