Earlier today, Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion took to indiegogo to announce their new web show, Conman. The show tells the story of a couple of actors from a show that is very much like Firefly, living their life on the convention circuit. They’ve also wrangled a bunch of other great talent including James Gunn, Gina Torres, Seth Green, and Felicia Day.
When the campaign went live this morning, they were hoping to get $425k. At the time of this report, they are now up to over $650k. If you listen to the pitch, they’ve actually got a great idea… and who wouldn’t love to see Mal and Wash back together again.
CON MAN centers around the post-show life of Wray Nerely, (Tudyk) the pilot and co-star of SPECTRUM, a sci-fi series which was cancelled before it’s time and eventually became a cult classic beloved by fans. Wray’s good friend, Jack Moore (Fillion) starred in the series and has gone on to become a major celebrity, while Wray continued to struggle to find his big break. While Jack enjoys the life of an A-lister, Wray tours the sci-fi circuit as a guest of conventions, comic book stores, and lots of pop culture events. The show will explore all the weird and crazy things that happen to Wray along the way, while telling the story of a guy learning to love and embrace his fans.
