Lights!  Cameras!  FURRIES!  Canadian cable television network Space has launched a new documentary mini-series, "Fanboy Confessional" (from Markham Street Films) exploring the various science-fiction fandoms, such as comic books, LARPers, and yes, even furries.

While the series premieres in Canada on July 13 at 10PM Eastern, there is no word yet as to whether it will be shown on other sci-fi channels, such as NBCUniversal's Syfy.

A producer for Markham Street contacted me about this last September . . . we talked for a while and I pointed them towards some local events. I didn't get a bad vibe from them, though it seemed fairly clear that they were aiming at fursuiters.

Hope it works out well for all involved.

The show was recently profiled by The Canadian Press:

McNamara said some were worried they'd be made fun of and he had to gain their trust. Particularly skeptical were the "furries," a community of people interested in anthropomorphic art and, in some cases, dressing up in furry costumes.

"In some cases"
Whoa! It almost looks like people are finally starting to do their research on the furry fandom. I must be dreaming...

If they contacted GreenReaper, that seems they know enough to know who's relevant, at least.

That and the fact that they mentioned us needing to gain their trust without seeming "Oh noes they're hiding something, look, perverts!"
