Dr. Horrible Eyes 2013 TV Debut
Straight out of the recent San Diego Comic Con, Deadline is reporting that Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog will make its television debut sometime next year. Although there is no specific information yet available as to the air date of the installments, apparently the news came from Whedon himself. During a panel at the convention for comic publisher Dark Horse, Whedon announced that The CW had obtained the rights to air Dr. Horrible and would do so sometime in 2013.
With news constantly circulating that a second movie/series/installment is in the works an announcement like this can only help bring the possibility closer to actuality. My only reservation at this point would be that Dr. Horrible should remain first run web content. Airing on TV does bring more eyes and a wider audience to the project, but what made it great and somewhat historic was how it used the emerging online entertainment sector and helped push it forward. I hope that Whedon and company keep that in mind as the Dr. Horrible sequel moves forward.
More information to come as air dates and further details become available.
