Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk are making a new web series

Jacob Kastrenakes writing for The Verge:

What do you do when you’re a sci-fi star but your TV show has been dead for years? You spend a lot of time at conventions, and a pair of Firefly actors want to let fans know what it’s like from their perspectives. Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk are launching a web series called Con Man about two former sci-fi stars — yes, one a ship’s captain, the other its pilot — who have gone on to have wildly different levels of success. Fillion’s character is a huge star, while Tudyk, who is writing and directing this series, plays a character who’s still stuck in smaller roles.

This is a wonderful idea for a web series. Fillion and Tudyk are a great double act and work really well together, and the extended list of names penned for the show will be really fun.

I've included a link to the Conversation with Nathan Fillion at #NerdHQ video where Alan Tudyk made a surprise appearance. Their banter with each other at the convention was fantastic and it's that that makes me most excited about them working on this particular project.

And how can you not love the "Because Convention Man doesn't sound as cool" tagline for the show?! So awesome.
