“DR. HORRIBLE’S SING-ALONG BLOG”

MAKES ITS TELEVISION DEBUT

ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 9, 9-10 PM ON THE CW

July 30, 2012 (Beverly Hills, CA) – Joss Whedon’s acclaimed “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog,” starring Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day,” will make its television debut on Tuesday, October 9 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET) on The CW.

Created as a three-part online musical in 2008 by Joss Whedon (“The Avengers,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), the series stars Neil Patrick Harris (“How I Met Your Mother”) as Billy, A.K.A. Dr. Horrible, a budding super villain whose plans for world domination continually go awry. His two goals: getting accepted into the Evil League of Evil, and working up the guts to speak to his laundromat crush Penny (Felicia Day, “The Guild”). The only thing standing in Billy’s way is his superhero arch nemesis, Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion, “Firefly,” “Castle”). With one big score, Billy could get into the E.L.E. and earn the respect of Penny, but only if he can keep her away from the dashing Captain Hammer…

Directed by Joss Whedon, “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” was written by Maurissa Tancharden, Jed Whedon, Joss Whedon and Zack Whedon, with music by Jed Whedon and Joss Whedon.

    AWESOME! Even though I have it in my Netflix queue all the time, on DVD and iTunes, I will still be watching this and singing along.

    Awesome!!!

    Much as I love Dr. Horrible, I’ll have to pass on the broadcast. New Girl will be back by then, so that takes priority over something I have on DVD. Being interrupted by commercials will probably ruin the flow of the musical, anyway.

    Ah well. I do hope people who haven’t seen it before tune in, though.

    Not a bad deal for something that was basically a project to keep busy while the writers strike went on a few years ago.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    I’ve seen it at WonderCon a couple years ago. Funny bit. Felicia has talked about how she got involved – Joss had seen her Web series The Guild while on the writers strike line and he emailed her asking if she could sing.

    Writing/Directing the 3rd highest grossing flim of all time really does go a long way. Well played, Joss, well played.
