Coming to a computer near you

Writer/director Joss Whedon has released the schedule for his Internet miniseries event Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, featuring Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day.

Act one will go up Tuesday July 15th.
Act two will go up Thursday July 17th.
Act three will go up Saturday July 19th.
All acts will stay up until midnight on Sunday July 20th.

Then, Whedon says, "they will vanish into the night, like a phantom (but not THE Phantom – that's still playing. Like, everywhere.)" The entire show will be available for download and, eventually on DVD "with the finest and bravest extras in the land."

Whedon, the creator of television series like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Firefly, says he came up with the idea for the musical in a moment of frustration at a lack of momentum during last fall's writers' strike.

"I finally decided to do something very ambitious, very exciting, very mid-life-crisisy,'' he said. "Aided only by everyone I had worked with, was related to or had ever met, I single-handedly created this unique little epic. A supervillain musical, of which, as we all know, there are far too few."
