Origin Story

Origin Story is an inventive docu-series hosted by Nerdist’s Andrew Bowser. Within one weekend at a pop-culture convention, Bowser crowdsources, creates, and cosplays a brand new superhero. Each episode chronicles the creation of the “origin story” by way of a Mad Lib with the help of con attendees, followed by a rendering of the new hero by a guest artist and then finally created into a costume by a gifted cosplayer. On the final day, Bowser Cosplays as the brand new character and films an impromptu comedy sketch with fans and fellow Cosplayers.
