Con Man was launched by FireFly stars Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion. It is about actor, Wray Nerely (Tudyk), who was on a science fiction show called Spectrum, that was canceled too soon, and now he goes to conventions, to sign head shots, meet fans and do panels.

The audience follows Wray’s story as he goes to the conventions and does video game voiceovers.
