Firefly was a short-lived show written and directed by a post-Buffy Joss Whedon. It lasted all of eight episodes, and was summarily cancelled. The feature film Serenity (I wrote about it here) featured the same cast.
It is estimated that it costs $1 million to create an episode of Firefly. To produce a complete season, it would require $24 million to make this happen. If 500,000 fans donate $2.00, we could produce one (1) episode. Raising the money to produce one episode will not be enough, so we need fans to donate $25 or $50 to resurrect Firefly for a complete season.
Yeah, good luck with that. Let’s see…raise $24 million to create a season of television, or, I don’t know, feed the population of Djibouti for a year. Tough call, there. I joke, of course, because the economies of the West don’t work that way. I wish these alpha-fans the best of luck.
