7 WEB SERIES THAT DESERVE TO BE TV SHOWS

first_imgAdvertisement Advertisement Advertisement In Con Man, creator Alan Tudyk stars as Wray Nerely, a washed-up actor whose fans only want to remember him from his past role in a famous science fiction TV series as he attends conventions (hence “con man”). The premise is a clever exaggeration on his own life, as Tudyk is best known as Hoban Washburne on Firefly. With cameos by Nathan Fillion and other greats, Con Man is somewhat of a unicorn—the series is clever but not disdainful of audiences when it comes to Tudyk poking fun at his status as less famous than Fillion. Facebook Twitter Login/Register With: Plenty of TV shows boast charming cast line-ups and great concepts, but where’s the love for web content? Emerging media built off of Kickstarters and Indiegogo projects are growing stronger and stronger, created by passionate artists and audiences that believe in their work. Other web series are produced by companies and corporations, and many of these series are still made by talented creators, except on different platforms and with different forms of funding. No matter the type, web series allow for a great amount of flexibility in style, format, character, and narrative—and that’s where many of them excel. However, some seem to even outgrow their homes on the web circuit and their stories, fanbases, or content demands more than a web series can provide.That’s why we’re looking at seven of our favorite web series in recent history that performed so well, we think they’d do even better with a full-length pickup as TV shows. See if your favorite made the list and if it didn’t, let us hear your choice in the comments!CARMILLAThe digital hit Carmilla attracted a huge fanbase of Creampuffs beyond what anybody expected. Beginning on KindaTV, the lesbian vampire love story and adventure wrapped all in one already moved into the film world with a Carmilla movie. We’ve already fallen in love with Laura Hollis (Elise Bauman) and Camilla Karnstein (Natasha Negonvalis), and we’ve seen them fight supernatural creatures of all kinds in both the web series and the film. After The Carmilla Movieput the beloved Hollstein five years into the future, it’d be easy to see a TV series picking up where it left off, or in an entirely new situation altogether. What if they became an official team that fights evil, but their professional lives get in the way? What happens if troubles from Silas University come back to haunt them? With a larger production budget, a new Carmilla TV series could blossom beyond the single shot, one camera angle series and use the star power of Negovanlis and Bauman to include fight scenes, more intimacy, and visual effects of supernatural creatures. While we’d be open to this beloved couple in any situation, we better be keeping the original theme song!CON MAN LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment last_img
