Let's Make Sci-Fi
Can three comedians create a legit sci-fi show? Comedians Ryan Beil, Maddy Kelly, and Mark Chavez are going to find out. Over eight episodes, they’ll try to write a serious, and seriously nerdy, pilot script. When they run into trouble they’ll consult Hollywood experts who have worked on things like Star Trek, Star Wars, and Firefly and science fiction superstars like Neil deGrasse Tyson, Rainn Wilson, Emily VanDerWerff and Neill Blomkamp. And in the final episode, professional actors will read their script, bringing it to life — for better or worse.

"Let’s Make a Sci-Fi is a fun and lovely series...what’s special about this one is how it captures the strong sense of play that comes through in the best moments of any creative collaboration. It makes me miss writing with other people."

"The thing is, everyone involved has absolutely no experience writing science fiction. Also, they're comedians. You don't have to be a fan of science fiction to enjoy this show. If you enjoy getting a peek behind the curtain that is the creative process Let's Make a Sci-Fi is guaranteed to add some fun to your feed."
