Various fan-made series have come, and gone, mostly based on funding, but now there’s something new on the scene. A groups of ‘Renegades’ is planning something new in the realm of Television; a professional episode, filmed and edited as a presentation to CBS, the owners of the franchise, as a pitch for a new online or cable series.
