Noticed this on Slashdot today:

"The first episode of the new science fiction drama Pioneer One has debuted and it looks like a hit. The pilot was shot for just $6,000, raised through the micro-funding platform Kickstarter, and the production is being supported through donations on the show's website.

Torrents available (there are other options on the main website):

From the main site:

This is the first episode of a 7-episode first season. What's going to happen to this mysterious cosmonaut? Is his story true? What will happen to our agents, now operating on their own? Help the creators tell this story, along with a further 4 seasons mapped out for the future.

Pioneer One is the latest project from Josh Bernhard and Bracey Smith whose previous indie feature The Lionshare, became VODO's biggest success to date with over 450,000 downloads since its release. The success of the project inspired the writer/director duo to develop this quality drama in collaboration with VODO and its distribution partners. With a successful distribution of the pilot they're hunting for the donors and sponsors that will make the continuation of the show possible.
The show's pilot was shot for just $6000, raised through the micro-funding platform Kickstarter. "This production was possible due in no small part to the willingness of talented, professional people working for free," explains Bernhard. "From actors to composers, they did this because they believed in the project and wanted to see it happen.The production was a journey in and of itself. Check out the video blogs that were posted to the web that tell the story from script to finished episode":
This release takes place with the kind support of distribution partners BitTorrent and Limewire, and of course all our other partners in the Distribution Coalition.
