Deconstructing a Tweet: The Middleman!

April 8, 2013


Who?  What?  Where? When? Why?  And (W)How?

WhoJavier Grillo-Marxuach, creator of the Comic book the Middleman and former writer of Lost!

What? There will be more Middleman!  For those of you unfamiliar with the Middleman, it was a short lived show on ABC family, and prior to that it was a comic book series created by Grillo-Marxuach.  The Middleman tells the story of the eponymous character as he saves the world from precious-gem-eating-aliens, Alternate reality doppelgängers gone bad, ventriloquist dummy vampires, Lucha Libre wrestlers, etc. etc. with the assistance of his faithful sidekick Wendy and his A.I. the Haydar.

Where?  On Twitter!  Keep up!

Why?  Because the Middleman TV show and comic were “Sheer elegance in their simplicity.”

HOW?!?!?!? “It will not be a movie like VM (Veronica Mars).”  Veronica Mars, the mid-aughts  cult favorite TV program, recently raised over $2 million over night on for the purpose of creating a one-shot Veronica Mars film.  This will not be like that.  What could it be though?

Another Comic book series?

A Web Series with the original actors?

A web series of the Middlemen of the past?

A TV Pilot?

What else can be gleaned from this post?

“There may be a kickstarter involved.  Figuring it out”

There may be a kickstarter involved.  He is figuring it out.

There is still the most important question though, WHEN?!?!?!?!?!?! He signed off with a simple “Stay tuned” which is brilliant in its simplicity.
