I was browsing over IMDB and saw that Joss Whedon is busy filming another TV series, “Doll House”, which will star Eliza Dushku. You would remember Eliza from her series Tru Calling and in her roll as Faith Lehane – Faith is so hot! – in Whedon’s earlier series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel.
Amy Acker, who we’ve seen in Alias, but know better as Winifred ‘Fred’ Burkle in Angel will also have a roll, as well as Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica) and Harry J. Lennix (24), we should see performances from Raphael Sbarge, Clayton Rohner and Maury Sterling.
The plot is much the same as we expect from Whedon, crime and love stories in futuristic packaging. Although I have yet to see an episode the plot descriptions I’ve read feel like Dark Angel meets Tru Calling.
If it’s Whedon, it’s something to look forward to.
It looks like HBO has been using Word of Mouth Marketing to create buzz for it’s new Vampire show True Blood. It’s funny how I heard of the movie Twilight which won’t be out until December almost 2 months ago.
True Blood won’t be airing until the 7th of September.
Joss Whedon – Buffy the Vampire, Angel and FireFly – did a musical version of Buffy, “Once More With Feeling” which might be where he got the idea for the musical series Doctor Horrible The three-part Doctor Horrible series stars Neil Patrick Harris, who we know from How I Met Your Mother, and Nathan Fillion, who we know from FireFly and Buffy.
It has been /.‘d, so it might not work.
He and his wife have seriously considered it, he likes the fact that the Dutch are so sober when it comes to celebrities. I think he might be surprised how sober. Celebrity in the Netherlands may have perks, but living as a foreigner in the Netherlands has some downsides that I doubt celebrity can smooth over.
You do have to work hard to live in a country as nice as this!
Apparently Star Wars: The Clone Wars has a theatrical released on the 15th of August, it’s the kick-off to to . Maybe it’s because I live in the bubble of Europe, but I have yet to see the animated series on the television. I usually had to download it to see it.
The television industry has yet to catch-up with the movie industry in closing the gaps in worldwide release dates of movies, the internet has forced the hand of the movie industry with downloading. I’m quite happy to life in a country where it’s perfectly legal to download music, movies and television series. The only thing I end up downloading are the television series.
I have noticed that the releasing of television series overseas is starting to come closer to the American release. Where it would certainly take over 4 years this gap has closed to 2 and in some cases 1 year. Heroes is a good example, season 2 first aired in the US in September and it only took 9 or 10 months for it to be Broadcast on Dutch television. Naturally I’d see it already as, apparently, it had been broadcast on a French or French language station. (Which is where my rips came from.)
This morning I am a little late with the first post, and should have really prepared something the evening before. As I walked to the computer I noticed my copy of Global License! lying there and I had been meaning to browse it for the last weeks. It’s good that I did, because I discovered that Mickey Mouse turns 80 this year, and Walt Disney Company turns 85.
