When will the first direct-to-iTunes TV series happen?

I've been thinking about the failed bid by fans of Enterprise to raise money to essentially buy an additional season of the show after its cancellation was announced. Now that I've seen the movie Serenity and all the episodes of Firefly I've missed on the Sci-Fi Channel, I'm wondering what the economics of a direct-to-iTunes TV series might be. At $2 a pop, how many of each episode does one need to sell to pay for a series like Firefly? If George Lucas could go it alone to make Star Wars, how about a TV series?
