Wired Includes My Roommate the Cylon in “7 Web Shows to Watch”
Wired Underwire blogger Hugh Hart wrote today about what’s worth watching online. At the top of his list: My Roommate the Cylon.
Creative team Space Shank Media drags the lofty Battletar Galactica mythology down to earth, where an apartment full of semi-dim twenty-somethings debate Cylon DNA. Smart editing eliminates the need for stunt people to fall off a three-story balcony.
In the tradition of the Lonely Island.com website, which brought Andy Samberg to the attention of Saturday Night Live, SpaceShank’s web work is getting noticed by people with money. Partner Alec McNayr says “Cylon really opened some doors for us. We’ve been pitching Comedy Central, meeting agents and talking to managers. It seems as though a web series is what a screenplay-in-tote used to be: proof of young, untested talent.”
Thanks for mentioning MRTC!
