Fans of “Firefly” have united, and for their efforts they’ll be getting Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk’s web series “Con Man.” It took less than a day for the project to raise more than $1 million through crowdfunding — more than double the goal of $425,000.
Now the project has gathered more than $1.6 million, making it the most crowdfunded web series of all time. The record was previously help by “TableTop,” a board game show hosted by Wil Wheaton.
To celebrate the project’s milestone achievement, Tudyk and Fillion have released a teaser for the series, which you can see above. If anything is to be learned from the four-minute video, it’s not to bother celebrities in the bathroom.
Though the project met its initial goal, Tudyk and Fillion continue to raise funds to complete the series. While the $425,000 they were aiming for would have allowed them to complete the first three episodes of “Con Man,” the new goal is $1.75 million, which will makes it possible to produce a full 12-episode season.
Funding for “Con Man” ends at 11:59 p.m. PT on April 10. If you want to back the project, take a look at its IndieGoGo page.
