The web series based off a show within a show making fun of another show is looking for help to complete its return. Untitled Web Series About A Space Traveler Who Can Also Travel Through Time creator Travis Richey has launched a Kickstarter campaign through which he is seeking $125,000 to fund a second season of the sci-fi comedy web series.
For the uninitiated, Untitled Web Series… is a copyright-safe version of Inspector Spacetime, the very funny Doctor Who parody from Community. The first season of the show, also fueled by a successful Kickstarter campaign, ran for six episodes and racked up several hundred thousand views, thanks in part to Community‘s incredible popularity on the Internet.
The amount Richey is seeking for season 2 is more than six times the budget of season 1, which will allow him to triple the length of the next six episodes and pay his cast and crew; among this season’s planned guest stars are Big Bang Theory‘s Mayim Bialik and Star Trek: Voyager‘s Robert Picardo. “Snagging Picardo is sweet!” exclaimed director Nicholas Acosta. “Working with the EMH is a dream come true. I wish I could high-five my younger self who sat in my room watching Voyager for hours.”
Piacrdo is one of the actors visible in the season 2 trailer, which hints at plenty more TARDIS-flavored action comedy.
At this point, Untitled Web Series… has evolved beyond its initial focus and has become one of the most popular fan-made spinoff web series. Thanks to its appeal to the Internet’s plentiful collection of nerds and its big plans, the show should find its hefty fundraising goal well within reach.
