Set in the "Swinging Sixties" of 2263, Slingers features a group of black-suited con-artists, scheming to rob precious cargo from The Raja Pleasure Ship in deep space. Be prepared to be blown away by this hopeful TV show's sizzle reel.

As of right now Slinger's just a concept for a TV show. But hopefully there will be six more full episodes coming our way next year. It was written by Mike Sizemore, who hopes to shoot the pilot in 2010. Slingers is directed by Steve Barron and stars Sean Pertwee, Adrian Bower, Tom Mison, Margo Stilley, Haruka Abe, Gun and Junior. This is the slick, poppy, fast-paced and well-edited television show that science-fiction lovers deserve.


Warren Ellis tweeted it as, "our favorite new TV show," and he's right.
