Arvind Ethan David, Executive Producer of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency whose involvement with Douglas Adams and the property began when he first adapted the Dirk Gently novels as his high-school play, made the following statement:
“In the years since the show’s cancellation, one of the great consolations has been the ongoing support and fellowship of the fandom. Because of them, #DirkGentlyIsntOver. In a sense, the show now belongs to the fans, and we are glad to let them actually own pieces of it through this auction, and to do so in a way that lets us support both Rhinos and human beings in their time of need by partnering with Save the Rhino and the Trevor Project”.
