Sure, "big budget" TV/Film or even Web-Series are more well known by the general public. Here's several ways to get your series to be more known, and its free with some dedication and digging around on the web for tips. A Series I co-created ended up ultimately having 9 half hour episodes, went from an exclusive (paid to watch online with royalty checks) series, to being syndicated on overnight TV on several CW affiliates.
Tip 1- spend numerous hours in pre-production creating characters (Don't leap into production until you have a solid cast playing the characters with screen tests).
Tip 2 - Talk to friends, friends of friends, or network to find people who have any kind of connection regardless of the TV station, network, or genre. Talk to them about making a pilot program and advise on how to pitch it with the latest trends, these trends change. (Half hour or 10 min full episode pilots to pitch aren't always what network execs want) sometimes they want a sizzle reel with key scenes or specific characters.
Tip 3 - Get funding from a reputable resource. Before we went the common route of indie-go-go or Kickstarter we met with new upstart companies in the crowdfunding realm like "Passerby", a crowdfunding platform as an option. Make your money raising/crowdfund campaign short 30 days at most 60 days.
