What do you do when you can't get enough of a television show that doesn't exist, yet has an extraordinary 50 years of backstory and history? If you're Travis Richey, the answer is, you create: UNTITLED WEB SERIES ABOUT A SPACE TRAVELER WHO CAN ALSO TRAVEL THROUGH TIME. Episodes 1 and 2 are now showing, as well as a behind-the-scenes "confidential" episode.
