NEW ORLEANS, June 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- RUSSELL PETERS joins the cast of the comedic feature SUPERCON. PETERS is set to play Keith Mahar, a washed up former child star, who finds himself broke, desperate and down on his luck. PETERS' character hopes to turn things around when he teams up with a rag-tag group of former TV actors and comic book artists to rob the convention they are set to work. He will star opposite MIKE EPPS and MAGGIE GRACE. The show is set to start filming this week in New Orleans, LA.
Most recently PETERS wrapped his ALMOST FAMOUS tour, which took him to over 120 cities across 25 countries with more than 500,000 fans in attendance over the past two years. The special will air on Netflix this October. PETERS is also starring in the upcoming comedic feature The Clapper and the TV mini-series The Indian Detective which shoots this fall in South Africa.
SUPERCON is being produced by Gold Star Films' Joey Tufaro along with MOmentum Productions' Susan Gorrell and Maria J. McDonald.
