First, let me start with this: A kickstarter campaign is essentially fans coming together to raise money to fund the production of a show or movie. In this case, funding Star-Crossed.
So here’s what I have learned about kickstarter campaigns, that may have you asking yourself, whether or not it is possible.
1. You can raise money all day and all night, but without the support of the network and studio, it won’t do any good. They own the rights to airing and distributing Star-Crossed, and we must have their cooperation if we want anything to come of the campaign. (Rob Thomas was given the greenlight by the studio to do the Veronica Mars campaign.)
2. The per-episode cost for Star-Crossed would be somewhere in the range of $1 - $2 million dollars.
Our best bet, is to reach out to the network and studio with the idea of pre-funding another season at around $2 - $6 per episode, for roughly thirteen episodes.
