Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible to Air on the CW
Joss Whedon is more than just the director of the best superhero film made. And yes; he’s more than just the creator of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. He’s also the creator of DR. HORRIBLE’S SING-ALONG BLOG. According to The Wrap, DR. HORRIBLE will be making its TV debut on the CW network on October 9, 2012.
Created as a three-part online musical in 2008 by the “Avengers” director and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” creator, the series stars Neil Patrick Harris as Dr. Horrible, a fledgling super villain with girl trouble. He has a laundromat crush on Penny (Felicia Day, “The Guild”), and his arch nemesis is Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion, “Firefly,” “Castle”).
The network will be editing the web series into a 42 minute television show. CW president Mark Pedowitz said he hoped the CW would also have the inside track if Whedon opts at some point to continue the series. DR. HORRIBLE was written by Maurissa Tancharden, Jed Whedon, Joss Whedon and Zack Whedon, with music by Jed Whedon and Joss Whedon. Ya gotta love nepotism!!
