We found this trailer for a proposed British sci-fi show called Slingers, which is kind of a Firefly-meets-Mad Men with an Ocean's 11 plotline that we WANT TO SEE RIGHT NOW: Watch it below.
The promo was designed to get people to fund and make it. If we had the money, we'd do it ourselves. Here's what creator Mike Sizemore said about it:
It's directed by Steve Barron and stars Sean Pertwee, Adrian Bower, Tom Mison, Margo Stilley, Haruka Abe, GUN and JUNIOR. The outstanding conceptual design was by Arran and Corran Brownlee. The music is by The Mummers. And yeah I'm the creator/writer/idiot who came up with it. Sleepydog are the guys running the show.
To quickly answer the most obvious question, we're hoping to shoot the pilot in 2010. We have a few more meetings to get through before that happens, but we're still heading in the right direction. In fact we've had a lot of good news since the last update on here, but I don't wanna jinx anything just yet.
What do you think?
(Thanks to Topless Robot for the heads-up.)
