Bid now for a strategic crowdfunding consultation lunch session with Garson Foos (President, Shout Factory) and Ivan Askwith (Producer, Mystery Science Theater 3000), and learn how they rallied fans around a Kickstarter campaign to bring back the cult comedy series that last aired in 1999. 

In 2015, fans of MST3K (known as "MSTies") united behind a record-breaking Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to reboot Mystery Science Theatre 3000 for a brand new, 14-episode season. The campaign brought together over 50,000 fans and raised over $6 million, becoming the highest-grossing Film & Television campaign of all time. This summer, it was announced that the new season will air on Netflix in 2017.
