Firefly returns! Well, actually, no it doesn't. But it sort of does.
Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion, who starred in the short-lived cult sci-fi TV series "Firefly," are making a web comedy series, "Con Man." It's about a couple of actors who used to be on a short-lived cult sci-fi TV series.
Tudyk's character played the pilot on the show-within-the show "Spectrum," as Tudyk did in the real "Firefly." Now, Tudyk's character is struggling, making a lot of appearances at science fiction cons. Fillion's character played the captain on "Spectrum," as Fillion did on "Firefly." Fillion's character went on to become a big star after "Spectrum."
The promotional video also features fan favorites Felicia Day and Scott Green. I'm pretty sure that's Gina Torres in the swimming pool — she played Zoe on "Firefly." And I don't know who the other guy is, the one who answers the door of his house. I probably should.
The series, Con Man, is being funded on IndieGogo, and raised more than $2 million as I write this. They want to raise enough money to make a spaceship.
I'm looking forward to this one. #ftu
