The HeliCLOCKters

When news broke that NBC canceled Timeless, fans scrambled to get organized in order to launch a campaign to save the show. Time was of the essence and the #SaveTimeless Fan Campaign immediately began to focus on putting together a grand gesture to capture the attention of studios and media, alike.

 

Plans were originally drafted to procure a billboard in LA, but were quickly re-routed to go even bigger! On the evening of July 3, the #SaveTimeless Fan Campaign announced their intentions to raise enough funds to fly two helicopters over San Diego Comic-Con.

By July 4th, the campaign’s GoFundMe page began to attract the attention of Timeless cast and writers, Sony Pictures executives, and journalists.

In under a week, the campaign raised an additional $20,000 and was able to reach their goal of $23,000 to cover the cost of two helicopters - affectionately dubbed “HeliCLOCKters” by the fandom after a tweet by Malcolm Barrett
