ConMan: The return of Firefly's Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk

I kind of worship the ground Joss Whedon walks on so when Firefly originally came out I was so excited I near wet myself... then watched it and went "WTF is this?"  Sometimes the timing of things is just wrong and I think that was Firefly's problem, because when I rewatched it I was ready for it and thought it had some of best quips and characters ever to hit the small and large screen.  Central to that series were the actors behind the captain and pilot team, Nathan and Alan, who started an Indiegogo campaign to create a series called "Conman" - annnnd who have successfully reached their funding goal.

Tudyk said this to Entertainment Weekly about the project:

“It’s about the convention world,” says Tudyk, who is also the show’s creator, writer, and director. “My character, Wray Nerely, was on a science fiction show called Spectrum, that was canceled too soon, and now he goes to conventions, to sign head shots, and meet fans, and do panels. Nathan’s character, Jack Moore, who was the captain of the spaceship on Spectrum, has gone on to incredible action-hero stardom, like Matt Damon. My character is frustrated with his situation and frustrated by Jack’s stardom. We follow Wray’s story as he goes to the conventions and does video game voiceovers and we are going to populate it with sci-fi actors and people that you will find at conventions. Zany hi-jinks ensue!”
