But instead of going the popular route of using a crowdfunding platform like Kickstarter or Indiegogo, they’re doing it on their own. I had the opportunity to speak with director Kyle Roberts to find out how they’re making it happen.

The Cape, the new superhero series from NBC, will make its debut Wednesday, but only for iPad owners with the free app from DC Comics, Mashable reported, adding that those who are doing without the Apple tablet will have to wait for the show’s broadcast premiere Jan. 9.
