If you’re a fan of Joss Whedon‘s television series Firefly, I think it’s safe to say that you’d agree that the show was canceled too soon. Do you know who else believes this to be the case? Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion, two of the stars of the very series that was canceled too soon.
There’s a reason why I keep stating the phrase “too soon.” You see, Tudyk and Fillion have begun an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to raise money for a new comedy series (which will air on Vimeo) called Con Man. Con Man is the story of an actor who had been on a science fiction television series, in which his character flew the spaceship. Unfortunately, the show was canceled too soon, and now he attends sci-fi conventions. Sound familiar?
Here is the official synopsis:
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. Wrayâ€™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.
Of course, what fundraising campaign would be complete without some awesome rewards? If you help support Tudyk and Fillion in their intriguing endeavor, here are a few of the things you could receive: access to the whole series before it is released to the public on Vimeo; an exclusive Con Man t-shirt; a thank you in the credits; “Nathan and Alan hang w/ sessions;” a short personalized video from Nathan Fillion!
I for one am excited to see Tudyk and Fillion back together again, poking fun at their misfortunate television history. If you’re thrilled too, check out their campaign video below and go to the Con Man Indiegogo Page now!
