And check out the latest deleted scene from the Con Man campaign.
Background / Synopsis:
Con Man will center around Tudyk’s Wray Nerely, the former lead in a quickly-cancelled science fiction series set aboard a starship, whose career has since stalled. While he now makes a living primarily through convention appearances, his friend and former costar Jack Moore (Fillion) has gone on to become a major celebrity. That’s superficially similar to what happened in real life after Firefly‘s 2002 cancellation – Fillion currently stars in ABC’s Castle, currently in its 7th season, while Tudyk has had a less visible career as a prolific voice actor with less frequent on-camera appearances in film and television.
Pitched on a tiny budget of $425K for three episodes, the Indiegogo campaign, launched on Wednesday, passed the $1 million mark in less than 24 hours. Since then it’s set records for highest-funded web series within 24 hours, and highest-ever funded web series, on all crowdsourcing platforms. As of right now, fans have contributed $1.6 million, with 28 days left before the fundraising period ends. In addition to 11-episodes now funded, confirmed guest stars include Sean Maher, Gina Torres, James Gunn, Seth Green, Felicia Day, and Amy Acker. If the fundraiser surpasses $1.7 million, two additional episodes will be produced, one of which will be a complete episode of “Spectrum”, the in-universe cult series.
From the Fans!
