SOLO: A sci-fi, comedy web series set in space, naturally.
Our hero, Scott Drizhal, is chosen to go on a solo, 3 year mission to Mars as part of a reality series. Unfortunately the show is canceled and Scott is now stuck on a round-trip ticket to Mars and back. With no company in deep space other than a smart-ass, artificially-intelligent ship computer (PHAL),Â his wife declaring him legally dead so she can claim the millions in insurance, a Napoleonic producer whose hubris lands him and the show into Japanese mafia infested waters and a malfunctioning, prototype ship that was never meant to fly to Mars… Hilarity ensues.
This new web series, created by writer and star, Jonathan Nail ( AMC’s Mad Men, HBO’s CarnivÃ le, Criminal Minds), also stars Michele Boyd (The Guild) and Jason Burns (Voice of the John Tesh Radio Show), premieres this fall on watchsolo.com.
