Con Man Will Be Your New Favourite Web Series

Con Man Will Be Your New Favourite Web Series

A successful crowdfunding project brings Con Man to screens, is it art imitating life or life imitating art?

Firefly has a devout cult fan following, and actor Alan Tudyk is tapping into this for his new web series, Con Man. Playing an actor from a much loved, but cancelled, sci-fi show called Spectrum, Tudyk finds himself becoming more of a tragic joke and increasingly living in the shadow of his former, and hugely successful, co-star as portrayed by his real life former, and hugely successful, co-star – Nathan Fillion.

The show is made possible by the tremendous response received to Tudyk’s crowdfunding campaign where over $3m was raised. The trailer features a whole host of nerd royalty including Wil Wheaton, Joss Whedon, Felicia Day, Seth Green and Henry Rollins. This trailer aired at this years SDCC and was premiered online by Entertainment Weekly.

Con Man will be shown exclusively on Vimeo this September.
