Free Enterprise Kickstarter



A new Kickstarter has been started to fund the return of Free Enterprise, as a TV series.

The new TV series would be based on the cult classic Free Enterprise, which was released in 1999.

The new series would be “produced by the original team behind the beloved fan favorite,” and would be “a love letter to Star Trek and all things geektastic from two lifelong devotees of genre filmmaking and fantastic pop culture.”

Free Enterprise, The TV Series would feature “an all-new cast of characters and a coterie of famous nerdlebrities that they will encounter in their travels.”

“We are so excited about the opportunity to revisit this universe we first created fifteen years ago,” said Series Producer Mark A. Altman.

“This is a chance for us to make our show the way we want to make it,” said Producer Robert Meyer Burnett. “We don’t have to answer to a studio or a network, only the fans who will make Kirk-starting this series possible.”

The Kickstarter, located here, runs through August 20, and seeks to raise $225.000.

Perks range from thank you letters and images from the set at the $10.00 level, to a set visit to meet the stars, VIP tickets for the premiere, a prop from both the original movie and new series, a dinner with the creators and members of the cast at a local Los Angeles restaurant and more at the $10,000 level, and plenty in-between those levels; including art prints, trading cards, t-shirts, and more.

    Got about fifteen minutes into Free Enterprise before turning it off. I absolutely could not stand the characters.

    Um, why? I guess it’s great for people that liked the film, but they are not getting any of my money!

    Free Enterprise (1998) is, well, for viewing in 1998; & while it may seem like it’s recent, it was when my VW Polo Mk3 had been made (and bought, brand new; ah, those were the days – but, that’s another story, hehe, heh).

    Right, so!.. Some *unconventional* comedy like this – can’t really fly so many years later, right?! It’s to be expected, that you weren’t able to watch it. Probably hadn’t been that good of a movie – to begin with (I’ve never even heard of it, until now, lolz; & I’ve seen every-single-one of the movies, ever filmed :)); aand so, what I meant to ask was:

    “Geek culture” is something that seriously needs to die. – WTF are you talking about, man?! 🙂 🙂 Are you even Greek? :-0
