Press Release

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.

    Dangit, I thought this meant a new television series was happening, not just a re-airing of the existing Dr. Horrible, even if that is really awesome.

    Though maybe they’re trying to drum up some extra support in advance of creating a new TV series or mini…

      I really hope you’re right Jimmy. How I Met Your Mother and Castle should be nearing their final seasons and this seems like it would be a great thing for both actors to return to.
