Firefly: Relit Project... December 30th!
Firefly: Relit, to put it simply, is a project where we suggest to the Sci/Fi Channel that they use Firefly as a Summer Replacement Series in 2007. Many people have already sent e-mails to them on this topic, but we want to make an impression on the top Brass, so....

On December 30th, I would like to encourage everyone to send Letters to the President of the Channel. We want to be taken seriously, so I would like to suggest that we Not send Overly decorated or "Fanboy" type letters. Let's keep it simple and to the point. Show them we're sincere and serious, and it'll improve the chances that they'll take us seriously.

The Mailing Address is:

Bonnie Hammer, President
NBC Universal | Sci Fi Channel
1230 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY
10020


On January 2nd, which is when the letters will probably arrive, I'd like folks to send e-mails to (removed) as well. As in all our campaigns to get noticed and get something done, it's all about Numbers. So let's drown 'em in letters and e-mails on Jan 2nd!

Here is the e-mail that I've been sending. It should serve as a fairly good template for Letters and e-mails both.

Subject: Programming Suggestion for Summer, 2007

To the Sci/Fi Programming Staff:

Firefly is one of your more popular shows; Check the
Numbers from the last few "Marathons" you've had of
it, and I'm sure you'll agree that it's still quite
popular. It's also in the Interests of NBC/Universal
that it BE a popular Show. The Film Serenity is doing
well in DVD sales, and Firefly's popularity certainly
ties into that.

So... Here's what I have in Mind:
Firefly as a Summer Replacement Series

There are 14 Episodes, if you count the Pilot as One
Episode. Show the Series in the dvd Format, the way
Joss Whedon originally intended them to be. Sci/Fi
could have each Episode Introduced by one of the
Show's Cast, perhaps a different one each time, and
Joss for the Pilot Episode. The "Host" can intro an
Episode, and provide a tidbit of commentary or trivia
at the end of each Installment. Show one per week,
on the same designated night, just like a regular
Series.

The Production costs will be extremely low, compared
to the cost of a "From scratch" New Series. It'll take all
Summer and Folks can Tune in, Same Time, Same Channel
each week. It'll be a blast for those of us already familiar
with Firefly, and would Introduce an entirely New Audience
to it as well.

This could generate enough renewed interest in Firefly
to bring about interest in a Serenity Sequel, or perhaps a
Serenity-based Mini-Series. Also, if Sci/Fi is in line for the
non-paying Cable Premiere of Serenity, this would be the
PERFECT Tie-in!

I hope you all give this some serious consideration.
It could certainly work, to the benefit of all concerned.

Sincerely,
Timothy Dale Brown

Thank you to everyone who decides to do this. It's a simple, practical way to keep Firefly alive and Flying. Hopefully, we can get Sci/Fi to at least consider it!

If you come across this post too late for the Letter campaign, please don't let that stop you from e-mailing. We've been doing that for over a month now! :)

Cool Firefly and Serenity T-shirts
I was looking for something to wear to the charity screening of the BDM and found some cool t-shirts. I wanted one, but ended up ordering three. One has a pic of Jayne on it and it says "Let's Be Bad Guys". Gotta love it. Another has the Serenity logo. And then there is the one that has a cool Buddha and it says "Dear Buddha, I want a pony and plastic rocket." You Browncoats will get that. I don't want to post a link to the site I found them at, but you can just google Serenity t-shirts. :)

BDM Screening for Charity
So our local group here in Greenville, SC got a local theater to do something cool for us. They are getting a copy of Serenity and showing it for us one night on their big screen. We are selling all the tickets and doing all the advertising, but the theater isn't charging us a penny. All the money will go to charity, specifically Equality Now. This is pretty cool and if any of you folks are nearby, please come out and join us. If you aren't close, see if you can do this in your hometown! Check out this cool banner:

Be a Big Damn Hero and come see the Big Damn Movie for Equality Now or start your own screening! This is a great way to keep Firefly/Serenity in the public eye and to do some good deeds too.[/img]

Browncoats, Help Me Out Here...
I recently heard someone refer to an "original" pilot for Firefly. By that meaning, not the pilot we saw, but an unaired one. I know Whedon had an unaired pilot for Buffy. Was/is the same thing true for Firefly? If so, I need to find it. :lol:
