Wray Nerely (Alan Tudyk) 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.

The series is a light-hearted take on the personalities, luminaries, and characters in the sci­fi community we are privileged to call ourselves members. Con Man is a way to share some of the surreal occurrences we have had, while telling the story of a guy learning to love and embrace his fans.

I wanted to make a show that featured all of my favorite convention artists and friends together. Not only that, I wanted to celebrate the world where heroes, villains, zombie hunters, and space pirates all overlap. I especially wanted to work with my friend Nathan Fillion again.

1×02 – Cash Poor: Wray meets his convention assistant, Karen, who is a machine, a machine, a soft serve machine. Wray signs autographs for his fans and agrees to work on his audition scenes with his manager, Bobbie.

1×11 – Full Release: Spectrum’s creator leaks the lost episode of the show and breaks the Internet. Bobbie, Wray and his 90 year old roommate and former stuntman for actresses, Dale, watch it together. Wray’s late co-star Bruise Camp Bell gets a dedication.

1×12 – Found and Lost: The cast of Spectrum (save for the late Bruise Camp Bell) has a reunion at Jack Moore’s house, where they watch the lost episode and consider whether to do the Spectrum movie. Jack’s pulled over by a cop, who’s luckily a huge fan.

1×13 – Too Much Closure for Comfort: During the reunion, Wray has a one on one with each of his Spectrum co-stars and realizes how much doing the movie means to them. Also, his militant co-star Stutter, who still holds an old grudge against Wray, exacts his cheesy revenge.

2×09 – Back to the Past: The cast of Spectrum reunites at Shock-A-Con and Jack asks Wray to keep an eye on them while he finishes securing financing for the Spectrum movie.

2×10 – Dawn of Girth: The gloves come off when the lost Hemsworth, Girth, wanders out of the outback and into the running for the titular character in Doctor Cop Lawyer.

2×12 – Shock to the System: Girth Hemsworth and Wray compete for the role of Dr. Officer Blade Slater, Esq.
