Con Man S1 & S2 (Series) – April 5

Con Man is a hilarious comedy that follows Wray Nerely (Alan Tudyk), a has-been actor who once commanded spaceships on the cult classic sci-fi show Spectrum.

He wrestles with fading fame while his former co-star, Jack Moore (Nathan Fillion), rockets to Hollywood stardom. In Season 2, Jack attempts to make a Spectrum movie, but Wray is unsure if he wants to join the mission. Through both seasons, Con Man explores the comedic struggles of a sci-fi celebrity and the surprising value of a dedicated fan community, no matter how quirky they may be.
