Last week, comic book writer, author and all around genius Warren Ellis posted a sizzle reel on his blog and Twitter account, billing it as "your new favourite TV show". Now, before you get all excited, "your new favourite" (or "favorite" on this side of the pond) "TV show" is not yet a TV show. But in this sizzle reel for Slingers, creator Mike Sizemore and director Steve Barron have put together one hell of a pitch.

Ellis name drops the original Ocean's 11 as a reference point, and it's a pretty right-on observation. This thing just looks like good, slick heist entertainment in outer space, which last I checked, wasn't territory anyone has really covered extensively. Before we go into further discussion though, go ahead and check out the reel below.
