Sci-Fi Slice have claimed that “˜once “Dollhouse” is over, Joss Whedon is leaving TV for good”¦to pursue creating on-line content along the lines of “Dr. Horrible.”’.
Now, there claim has not been sourced, but let’s assume for the moment that it is true: genre television would surely have lost one of its finest writers, and if ever there was to be a tragedy written about the demise of one of television’s talents at the hands of the executives, surely Joss’s battles with FOX would be right up there.
Those unfamiliar with Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog should check its Wikipedia entry for further details, as it does strike me as the sort of thing Joss would be interested in moving towards. Now that he has his fan following, does he really need the pencil-pushing network television executives telling him how to edit his content? No goram way.
Then again, Sci-Fi Slice might not have a source, and might have just made it up. In which case, disregard this post.
