Space Junk – Kickstarter Now Live

Having released their pilot episode online, the creators of web series Space Junk are now seeking funding to help them make the next five episodes.

Following the crew of the Really Invincible III, Macclesfield Division, this lo-fi sci-fi explores what life would really be like out in the darkness of space, featuring well-known British TV actor Mark Benton alongside Coronation Street star Katy Cavanagh.

When we interviewed the cast on set earlier this year, writer/actor Neil Warhurst described Space Junk’s style of comedy: “These ordinary people – ordinary, bored, failed, pretty tragic people – their overall mission is quite epic, they want to discover new life, but they’ve been there for six years and they’ve not discovered any. So on the side, they’ve been asked to do some cleaning up.”

The writers also teased some future storylines, including a scuttling noise in the hold turning out to be a crewmember’s ex, a seemingly lifeless planet with a dangerous disease in its dust, and the ship’s resident clone carrying out some rather disturbing experiments.

It’s these episodes that producer Chris Jupe and his team now want to fund, and they’re asking for your help to raise £23,500.

There are a range of great perks on offer, and you can donate now, plus watch the pilot, via Kickstarter.
