Q&A with the Executive Producer of the Firefly Special Event


Meet Bernadette McDaid -- or simply Bernie, as we call her around the office -- and her very famous friends.

She's not just another executive. She's a real Browncoat -- and the "Browncoats Unite: Firefly 10th Anniversary Special Event" is her baby. She's the mastermind behind reuniting the cast at San Diego and New York ComicCons, filming the reunion, writing the script...EVERYTHING.

Here's your chance to get special behind-the-scenes access to the woman closest to all things Firefly-reunion-related. Bernie has graciously agreed to answer any questions you may have about the upcoming special. So ask away! Leave us a question in the comments and we'll have Bernie answer them.

NOTE: Bernie is also the woman behind the EXCLUSIVE #FireflyNov11 clips that are on their way to being unlocked by fans on Twitter. Bernie has identified these as being juicy bites that just didn't make it in to the 1-hour-long special. So follow @ScienceChannel and keep tweeting #FireflyNov11! Click HERE to participate.

TUNE IN November 11th at 10pm ET/PT for "Browncoats Unite: Firefly 10th Anniversary Special Event" on Science and...HINT'll find out how to bid on exclusive Firefly items from the reunion special with all proceeds going to charity...

3 MORE CLIPS! YOUR NEXT MISSION: You Give us 5,000 #FireflyNov11 Tweets, We Give You More Firefly

Firefly-10-anniversary-video-stillUPDATE: There are now 3 more clips awaiting your "unlock." CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE PAGE. Keep tweeting #FireflyNov11!


See this screen shot? It's taken from the upcoming Firefly 10th Anniversary: Browncoats Unite documentary, set to air on the Science Channel this November 11, 2012 at 10pm.

Now, what if we told you there are more than 2 hours of UNUSED footage that WILL NEVER AIR because it just didn't fit into a 1-hour-long documentary? And what if we told you some of it was pretty darn funny, poignant, and just all around amusing? You'd want to see it, right?

So here's your chance: We're asking our fans to show us just how much they want to see this extra footage. We need YOU to send us a tweet to @ScienceChannel with the hashtag #FireflyNov11. And then we need 4,999 more.

This is your first challenge: When we hit 5,000 tweets with the hashtag #FireflyNov11, we'll tweet out a link to the first piece of cut footage. (Just to add a little excitement, I'll tell you it's a roundtable discussion of Nathan Fillion's one-and-only naked scene in the Firefly series.) So get those tweets coming in! We announced this endeavor at New York City Comic Con on October 13th -- and we'll keep releasing more and more content for each challenge met. Be sure to tell all of your Browncoat buddies!

Start tweeting NOW! #FireflyNov11
