Slingers, the Sci-Fi Show Too Good to Exist

Holy shit. Watch this. Watch this right now.

This is a promo for Slingers, a sci-fi heist show — think Ocean’s 11 in space — that doesn’t actually exist. The promo was made in hopes of making a show. From creator/writer Mike Sizemore:

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.

I think it’s fair to say that Slingers looks awesome, and if there’s any kind of goodness or fairness in this world, we’ll be watching the first season of Slingers either fall ’10 or Spring ’11. Of course, since there is no goodness or fairness in this world, this is probably all we’ll get. Goddammit. But thanks to Thomas C. for the tip.
