If you’ve ever watched the NBC TV show Community, you probably recall the episode when Inspector SpaceTime made his debut.
The Inspector – played by Travis Richey – was initially meant to spoof the popular BBC show Doctor Who. However, after his stint on Community, Richey apparently decided to make a web series based on his character.
Unfortunately, that didn’t sit too well with NBC, as the network owns the name Inspector SpaceTime along with the visage of the character.
When NBC found out Richey had kicked off production on the series based on the character, it sent the actor a cease and desist letter. After receiving the letter, Richey decided to simply change the name and the likeness of the character and move on.
So rather than being titled Inspector SpaceTime, the show is currently dubbed “Untitled Web Series About a Space Traveler Who Can Also Travel Through Time.” Quite a mouthful isn’t it?
There is no indication of when the original episodes of the web series will premiere, but you can check out the official trailer above until then.
