'Inspector SpaceTime' movie gets 'Doctor Who' actor Sylvester McCoy
What began as a joke obsession on "Community" first turned into an "Inspector SpaceTime" web series. Now, The Inspector is going big with a feature film, guest-starring Sylvester McCoy of "Doctor Who," "Star Trek" actors and Mayim Bialik.
Yes, this is a real thing.
Instead of a second season to "Untitled Web Series About a Space Traveler Who Can Also Travel Through Time," the producers have decided to go with a film, "Untitled Motion Picture About a Space Traveler Who Can Also Travel Through Time." This choice came after McCoy (aka, the Seventh Doctor), Bialik ("The Big Bang Theory"), Robert Picardo ("Star Trek: Voyager") and Chase Masterson ("Star Trek: Deep Space Nine") all agreed to be guest stars.
The series/film also stars Travis Richey (The Inspector), Eric Loya and Carrie Keranen.
To prove how serious all of this is, the movie's press release even included a quote from McCoy: "It's a brilliant piece of work! Marvelous, and I really want to work with The Inspector!"
There is no set date for "UMPAASTWCATTT," but the production is hoping to raise $25,000 via Indiegogo to get the production going. The rest of the film's budget is expected to come from other investors.
So what is "Inspector SpaceTime"? The supposedly fictional show was introduced on "Community" to be the favorite series of Abed (Danny Pudi) and Troy (Donald Glover). Only short clips were ever seen on the comedy, however, so the actor who played The Inspector (Richey) made a web series to fill in the blanks. Six episodes of the web series' first season are available online.
