The fan: Felicia Day was carving out a niche for herself as an occasional TV guest star on a variety of shows when she got the idea for a web series about the friends she had made playing massively multiplayer online games. That series, The Guild, became arguably the most influential web series of the medium’s short history, proving that people would even watch such a thing in large-enough numbers to make an impact. The Guild had six seasons, and the series’ ambitions expanded with each new year. In the past year, Day has turned her sights toward her successful YouTube channel, Geek And Sundry, which is the home of several geek-themed web series, featuring online icons like Day and Wil Wheaton. Geek And Sundry launches a second slate of new programming on August 6, when its new animated series, Outlands, premières. Three more scripted series are scheduled to launch throughout the fall.
