So, once upon a time there was a woefully short-lived sci-fi series that lived on in the hearts and minds of the fans, becoming a cult classic. The star of this show now tours the sci-fi convention scene, while his co-star went on to be a major movie star. Then, they got together to create a series, about a woefully short-lived sci-fi series that lived on in the hearts and minds of the fans, becoming a cult classic, and the star that tours the sci-fi convention scene. I know it’s already been said, but can you get any more meta than Con Man? I’m so geeking out about it right now, I love it!
And obviously the backers of this crowd-funded web series loved the idea as well (or, at least the idea of seeing more Nathan Fillion). Back in April, Con Man’s Indiegogo campaign closed at over 700% funded, and, in anticipation of its imminent release, the second trailer has arrived.
Wray Nerely (Alan Tudyk) was a co-star on Spectrum, a sci-fi series which was canceled –Too Soon– yet became a cult classic. Wray’s good friend, Jack Moore (Nathan Fillion) starred in the series and has gone on to become a major movie star. 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 feature all the weird and crazy things that happen to Wray along the way to these events.
OMG Felicia Day you are just too freaking adorable! If you want to geek out some more over seeing Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion reunited, or play “guess-when-last-you-saw-that-guest-star-in-something”, Con Man starts airing later today on Vimeo on Demand.
