PIONEER ONE is an independent sci-fi drama series written by Josh Bernhard and directed by Bracey Smith. After raising $6000 to shoot their pilot on Kickstarter in March, 2010, the first episode debuted online on June 16, 2010 and was downloaded 2,000,000 times in two weeks. The pilot went on to win Best Drama Pilot at the 2010 New York Television Festival. Over the next several months, fans donated $100,000 to fund the rest of the 6-episode season which was nominated Best Drama and Best Writing at the 2012 Webby Awards.
Originally distributed on VODO.net, the episodes had over 4.1 million completed downloads as of April, 2012: http://www.pioneerone.tv/wp...... ____________________
