Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion are working together again on something sure to be of interest to Firefly fans and convention goers. Two days ago they launched an Indiegogo campaign for a new web series, Con Man, which has (not surprisingly) already blown — like a leaf on the wind — way past its initial $450,000 goal. And no network can cancel it this time.
Here’s a synopsis of the show written by Alan Tudyk, via Indiegogo:
Wray Nerely (Alan Tudyk-Me!) 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.
