The duo plays caricatures of themselves on the series, which mixes scripted comedy and improv. Speight Jr. plays Rich, a multiple divorcé and former actor who gets his kicks from fans who still think he matters, and Benedict is Rob, a recent divorcé who returns to the con circuit to cover the costs of his failed marriage. Supernatural fans will also surely love the show, which will feature cameos from other cast members from the long-running CW drama.
Speight Jr. and Benedict shot the scenes for the show while on a real-life convention tour, but they aren’t quite done yet. And that’s where the fans come in.
In order to get a full season made, Speight Jr. and Benedict have launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise money. In a little over a week, Kings of Coneasily surpassed the original goal for $100,000, ensuring that three episodes will be released. However, if they manage to raise $300,000 by May 10, they’ll be able to produce a full season.
