One of the major components that make up our great genre is the notorious convention circuit. Almost every state hosts one now. They vary is size and are almost held in every month of the year, but the one common denominator, scratch that, one of the major common denominators is the energy and excitement that goes on at each event! Fans getting the chance to meet their favorite characters in the flesh! Photo ops to cosplay brilliance, the con circuit is an undeniable force to be reckoned with.
And an undisputed series that brings fan favorites, both cast and crew, is the CW’s widely adored SUPERNATURAL! And even though this may not be specifically about our dreamy Winchester brothers (Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki); Rob Benedict (Felicity) and Richard Speight Jr. (Justified) are just as dreamy and set to bring us an amazing new comedy series! airing November 15th. From successful IndieGoGo to it’s an official “GoGo” via ComicCon HQ , this looks amazing!
“Thanks to their pivotal roles on the hit CW show SUPERNATURAL, Benedict and Speight Jr. have become regulars on the fan convention circuit. Now, after years of appearing at airport hotels across the country and abroad, they’ve created KINGS OF CON, a single camera comedy inspired by their real experiences that goes beyond the autograph lines and photo ops to what really makes the cons truly crazy and unpredictable – the actors paid to be there.” ~K.O.C.
“It’s BROAD CITY meets PARTY DOWN with the comedic honesty of CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM and “Louis CK” as Richard and Rob play caricatures of themselves cavorting through the con world: Rich, a thrice divorced former actor who’s love of the game is fueled by the faux fame he experiences at the hands of a gaggle fans who still think he matters, and Rob, a recent divorcee back on the circuit to cover the costs of his failed marriage and stalled career. Scripted content mixed with improv, and Rich and Rob’s razor sharp interplay all fuel the spirit of the show, backed by a supporting / guest cast of other SUPERNATURAL players as well as established actors from across the Hollywood spectrum Rob and Richard have come to know over the course of their 20 year careers.”~ K.O.C.
There are going to be some familiar faces, in a addition of the Winchester boys.
Though it may not be “horror” in blood and gore, it hits on several common chords that is the theme music to the genre! And who doesn’t love comedy?! And cons?!? And did we mention the Winchester Brothers…anyway, take a look!
“Together, we will create comedy gold served on a professional platter! We can make this show happen!” ~ K.O.C.
AND THEY DID!!!
