And Now For Something Completely Different

Really different!

Joss Whedon, the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Firefly/Serenity (with more on the way), has created a new project that will be premiering on the Internet.

It will be available, for free, for a short period (July 15th through July 20th) before disappearing - then coming out on DVD. Here's a description:

During the WGA strike Joss Whedon started writing a three part musical series for the internet. Each of the three episodes will be approximately ten minutes each.

Co-writers for the internet feature are Joss’ brothers Zack and Jed and Jed’s FiancĂ© Maurissa Tancharoen . The writing and shooting have been completed and the series is now in post-production.

“It’s the story of a low-rent super-villain, the hero who keeps beating him up, and the cute girl from the laundromat he’s too shy to talk to.” says Whedon.

“Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” will star Neil Patrick Harris as Dr. Horrible, Nathan Fillion as Captain Hammer, Felicia Day as Penny and a cast of dozens.”

I'm a fan of Whedon's work, so I'd like to make you aware of Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog (and the fan site). This was put together during the writers' strike, seemingly as a protest. He refers to it as "Show Friends" instead of "Show Business." Read his post here.
