Cast, producers to tweet during airings
@FoxBroadcasting is bringing Twitter to primetime this week, via repeats of #glee and #fringe.
Cast and producers from both shows will log on to Twitter during airings of both shows (which Fox has dubbed “tweet-peats”); those tweets will then be simultaneously telecast in a lower-third scroll on Fox.
Viewers will also be able to follow and RT (that’s Twitter-speak for “retweet”) ongoing commentary via the cast and crew members’ individual Twitter accounts.
Fox is airing last season’s penultimate episode of “Fringe” at 9 p.m. Thursday, while it will rebroadcast the “Glee” pilot at 9 p.m. Friday.
Participants include “Fringe” exec producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman, as well as stars Joshua Jackson and John Noble.
According to Fox, the participants will answer fan questions, discuss behind-the-scenes info and tweet about the upcoming season.
