MovieViral San Diego Comic-Con 2013 Preview

CC2013

It’s mid-July, so that means San Diego Comic-Con is right around the corner. In fact, the festivities start this week with Preview Night on Wednesday. We at MovieViral will once again be covering the convention live from the floor, but this time will be a little different. We’ve been officially covering Comic-Con since 2010, and every year only I, Dan, have gone. Our other editors and writers have helped from home. This time, I’ve got back up, as three more members of our crew are joining me in San Diego: staff writer Michael Lee, contributing writer Caleb Hamilton, and event correspondent Joshua Butler. After the break, we’ll give you a preview of what to expect from Comic-Con and our coverage.

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Inspector Spacetime! “Community” Actor Launches Webseries Based on Character


When Travis Richey shot his first scene as Inspector Spacetime (Community‘s Doctor Who equivalent), he immediately saw the potential of the character outside of a cameo here and there. So Richey set out to create a web series with his writing partner and pitched it to NBC and Sony. That didn’t work out so well, even when he went through “official channels.” However, that didn’t stop Richey and one Kickstarter later, we have the first episode of Untitled Webseries About A Space Traveler Who Can Also Travel Through Time!

Get the details after the break.
