They play actors from a failed sci fi show that was cancelled prematurely.

Quote:
Wray Nerely (Alan Tudyk-Me!) was a co-star on Spectrum, a sci-fi series which was canceled -Too Soon- yet became a cult classic. Wray's good friend, Jack Moore (Nathan Fillion) starred in the series and has gone on to become a major movie star. 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 feature all the weird and crazy things that happen to Wray along the way to these events.

Interesting... without knowing the storyline, I think I'd prefer a "fictionalized" version of themselves (i.e. Alan playing "Alan" and Nathan playing "Nathan.")

In 12 hours or so they have already received $715K in funding, nearly $300K more than their initial goal. The Browncoats have risen up.

My sister told me about it this afternoon. I contributed before I even read the description.

If you watch the video they are going to make fun of the weird people they encounter at cons... not the con-goers, but the promoters and the security guys and so forth. Making it more fictionalized than that makes that easier for them.

I like the part how "Con Man" has a double meaning - both sci-fi convention man and the way he gets strangers longing for the past to give him $1.3 million out of thin air.

$1.7 million now... The "HangWith" perk is a bit strange - mostly Alan reading greetings from the screen, when it works at all. Still kinda fun, when it works, which is not always.

Reddit AMA today. Some fun comments in there, including this:

Alan Tudyk: Although it's important to note: leaves that are flying in the wind are dead.
It's true! I just realized it this past year.

Alan will be at Megacon in Orlando this weekend. They are going to count down the minutes on the Indiegogo campaign at a bar Friday night and be shooting crowd scenes for the show all day Saturday.

Cool - I'll be there! Just on Sunday, though :-(

However, Sunday is when they're (Alan, Summer Glau, and Adam Baldwin) doing the Firefly panel, so at least I'll catch that.

I've been thinking of day tripping down just for the Firefly panel. Maybe I'll see you there.

It would be great to meet you - I'll look for you! You can spot us by looking for my 15 year old daughter, who will almost certainly be dressed as Mal.

Nah, if he's scheduled to be somewhere where I'm planning on going, he gets an invite to Mann's Chinese Theater or something big and exciting like that JUST TO AVOID ME!

Cool shirt! Get Alan to sign it as Wray Neary!

I didn't manage to make it down, so take pictures. Hope you have a great time.

That's fantastic!!

I meant to ask you to give Adam, my love - had no idea you'd actually get a happy family photo with him and the others. So cool that you and your daughter dress up and have such fun.

Awesome!

I wish I could meet them. I have a couple cool shirts to wear plus a Jayne hat.

I have the Capt Hammer shirt, and I have a shirt with Malcom Reynolds tearing his shirt open Clark Kent/Superman style revealing the Capt Hammer shirt. Also have a shirt with Jayne's hat that just says "Shiny"!

So anyone else who contributed to this can you tell me how this whole "Hang w/" thing works? I got an email today saying it should be setup, but I never saw one before that gave me my secret code or whatever I need to use it. Also I have no idea what it is. I really only care about watching the actual show, not production updates or chatting with the stars. So as long as this has nothing to do with watching the actual show then I don't really care.

It doesn't have to do with the actual show. "Hang w/" is a way that the producers (Tudyk, Fillion, and PJ Haarsma) can stream video of themselves to the interested masses, talking live about the production of the show while responding to incoming text messages the app users submit. It hasn't worked very well thus far.

It's a stupid app. I feel like they are pushing that app more than the show. They should just upload the videos to youtube like everyone else.
