Con Man centres on the post-show life of Wray Nerely (Alan Tudyk) the co-star of “Spectrum,” a sci-fi series, which was cancelled before its time and went on to become a cult classic beloved by fans. Wray’s good friend, Jack Moore (Nathan Fillion) starred as the series Captain and has gone on to become a major celebrity, while Wray (Tudyk) hasn’t found his desired level of stardom. Wray is the begrudging guest of sci-fi conventions, comic book store appearances, and different pop culture events; however, everything is not as it seems from the outside.
The series will explore these events and all the weird and crazy things that happen to them along the way.
Con Man also features a plethora of Sci-Fi’s biggest personalities including: Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica), Amy Acker (Person of Interest), Gina Torres (Firefly, Suits), Sean Maher (Firelfly, Eastsiders), Felicia Day (Buffy The Vampire Slayer), Seth Green (Family Guy/Austin Powers), Mindy Sterling (Austin Powers), Jewel Staite, (Firefly), Summer Glau (Firefly, Terminator: SCC), Sean Astin (Lord of The Rings), James Gunn and Joss Whedon.
Con Man was funded via Indiegogo, resulting in a record-breaking 3.2 million dollar campaign. With the support of over 46,000 fans from around the world, Con Man now stands as the third highest funded film campaign on any crowdfunding platform ever.
Con Man is executive produced by PJ Haarsma, Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion.
