The show focuses on Tudyk’s character as he attends conventions and other events. It’s supposed to be based in part on the experiences — strange, funny, or otherwise — that he’s had over the years while interacting with fans and others in the convention world. “If you’ve gone to a sci-fi convention, you’ve only seen half of it,” Tudyk says in a statement. “Con Man delivers what convention ‘all-access’ passes have only promised in the past.”
Tudyk and Fillion went to Indiegogo to raise money for Con Man and quickly exceeded their goal of $425,000. At press time, the campaign is sitting closer to $650,000 with a month to go.
Well that’s not surprising in the least. The Firefly cast was pretty magical together, and we’ll clamor for more, in whatever form it takes. This one sounds like a winner.
