Hall H was packed with people to see the first trailer for the debut of the trailer for the upcoming webseries, Con Man. Part of the appeal is that the series is packed with pop culture, and online celebrities, in a humorous take on convention life.
The series is a lighthearted take on the personalities, luminaries, comic book stores, and characters they have run into during their years in the sci-fi community and convention circuit, while telling the story of a guy learning to love and embrace his fans. CON MAN centers around the post-show life of Wray Nerely (Alan Tudyk), the pilot and co-star of SPECTRUM, a sci-fi series which was cancelled before it’s time and eventually became a cult classic beloved by fans. Wray’s good friend, Jack Moore (Nathan Fillion) starred in the series and has gone on to become a major celebrity, while Wray continued to struggle to find his big break. 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 explore all the weird and crazy things that happen to Wray along the way, while telling the story of a guy learning to love and embrace his fans.
The series kicks off on Vimeo on September 30, 2015, and will set you back $14.99 for a three month rental period. There are twelve episodes in total (thanks to the $3.2 million raised on Indiegogo), each lasting 10-minutes.
