Fans of ABC’s October Road now have venue where they can share their own stories about lost loves and friendships.
Last week, the network launched “Meet Me on October Road,” a microsite on ABC.com that gives viewers the opportunity to post anecdotes online. From the network’s home page, visitors can access the microsite by clicking on a link, after which a short introduction set against an autumn scene loads on the screen. The introduction ends with a video clip of Nick Garrett (Bryan Greenberg) and Hannah Daniels (Laura Prepon) dealing with their own reconnection. Visitors are also invited to submit their stories.
