The Science Channel is kicking off an all-day Firefly event to lead up to the premiere of Firefly: Browncoats Unite tonight. A Firefly full series marathon kicks off starting at 7 AM ET.
After the Firefly marathon, Firefly: Browncoats Unite will air on November 11 at 10 PM ET. In the special, the Science Channel reunites Joss Whedon, Nathan Fillion and the entire renegade crew of the Serenity. Serenity crewmembers participating include Sean Maher, Summer Glau, Adam Baldwin, Morena Baccarin, Alan Tudyk, Gina Torres and Jewel Staite; along with executive producer Tim Minear and executive story editor Jose Molina.
Whedon and cast will provide the complete oral history of the franchise. The 60-minute special includes secrets from the set, exclusive cast interviews, and footage from the 2012 Comic-Con.
"When Science Channel began airing FIREFLY in 2011, we immediately realized that these fans are a subculture united by a unique and fanatical passion for the series," said Debbie Adler Myers, who is general manager and executive vice president of Science Channel. "Our goal is to present them the series they love — but in a totally new and surprising way. Whether that's through exploring the science behind the show or reuniting the entire cast for the first time, we want Science Channel to be the home for Browncoats everywhere."
