@ MidemNet: Bebo Killed KateModern Star As Viewer Response

When Bebo’s interactive video drama KateModern killed off its eponymous lead character at the start of its second season earlier this month, it seemed like just a natural arc in the narrative (Kate was being pursued by the same blood-thirsty sect that plagued LonelyGirl15). But, asked why she killed Kate at MidemNet, Bebo international president Joanna Shields said: “We did actually, because the audience didn’t fancy her. We constantly take the pulse of the network about how they feel about a particular thing.” Not that the show overall hasn’t been a success – season one clocked up over 35 million views.
