A music comedy Sci-Fi series set in a space cab, “The Cabonauts” will follow characters as they take various passengers to their intergalactic destinations.
Created by Evil Global Corp. and written by its principal Hayden Black, creator and star of the award-winning web comedy series “Goodnight Burbank” and “Abigail’s Teen Diary,” the series’ first season will be filmed in HD and have their first run exclusively on Dailymotion.
“When I read the beautifully written, comical, futuristic script for ‘The Cabonauts,’ I thought that whoever wrote it was crazy and I couldn’t wait to be a part of it,” commented Ms. Nichols. “I love the sheer nonsense of it – we’re in a seemingly normal situation then suddenly break out in crazy song. It’s such fun and so smart, with elements in it that you have not seen before on screen, and I think it can’t miss.”
“We see The Cabonauts as a breakthrough in Web comedy and we are absolutely thrilled to see Nichelle Nichols not only agree, but join the cast,” said Joy Marcus, General Manager of Dailymotion US. “Nichelle’s fans will now join our strong base of of comedy, music and sci-fi lovers-to make The Cabonauts a huge success.”
“Getting Nichelle on board is the thrill of a lifetime. She’s a gorgeously talented, brilliantly gifted actress who elevates the show to a whole new level,” said Hayden Black, creator of “The Cabonauts.” We think her fans from her Star Trek days and beyond will love her character in The Cabonauts.”
