In a distant corner of the universe, a galaxy is at war. Rebels battle for freedom; villains fight for control. But the true heroes are the ones cleaning up the mess…

Space Janitors is a comedy/science fiction web series created by Davin Lengyel and Geoff Lapaire. It chronicles the lives of two janitors, Mike Chet (Pat Thornton) and Darby Richards (Brendan Halloran), who serve aboard an evil iconic space station. After all, someone has to buff out the blaster burn marks from the halls and mop up the hero guts from the not-so-bottomless shaft, right?

Shedding a humorous light on popular sci-fi staples, the misadventures of Mike, Darby and their friends in Social Group 417 keep things entertaining. There’s a galactic conflict circling around them, though, and the janitors are tasked with balancing their custodial work and trying to do the right thing.

Both seasons of Space Janitors were shot in Toronto. Our series was funded in part by the Independent Production Fund and the Ontario Media Development Corporation.

Our first season consists of eight episodes and is distributed globally by Geek and Sundry. Season 2 saw its world premiere on April 2nd, 2013.
