A Midsummer Night's Ramble
Yup. You've managed to reach the news area of chosentwo.com. Here you can see some of the interesting
tidbits of news regarding Buffy and Angel, brought to you by Anna,
Kristina, and Little Willow.
Lots and lots of news to report since we missed quite a bit with the site being down! Not quite sure what to start with, so I'll just jump into it with this TV Guide Online interview with Joss about life after BtVS ends. Read that right here.
Next up... it looks like we won't see a spin-off from Buffy just yet. There were talks of a Faith spin-off, but Eliza Dushku has signed on to do a pilot for Fox next fall. You can read the details of that one over here. And some BtVS stars talk about why another spin-off probably won't happen right away in this article from Sci Fi Wire.
Speaking of new projects... lots of BtVS folks are picking up jobs for next season at various other shows, etc. Here's a few articles/tidbits about some of them:
Nicholas Brendon has signed on for Fox comedy pilot entitled "The Pool at Maddy Breakers." More info.
Writer/Executive Producer Marti Noxon is executive producing another Fox show, "Still Life," a supernatural family drama. More info.
And writer Jane Espenson has quite a few projects on her plate. This info comes from janeespenson.com:
"Buffy is ending this season, but we'll still be able to get our Jane fix. This spring she'll be working on a new Warner Brothers series for FOX, called "The O.C." about teenagers in Orange County. Nothing's definite, but hopefully it'll be picked up for the summer season. Then come fall, Jane will be doing double duty, working on the yet-to-be-named Gilmore Girls spinoff, and as Consulting Producer for Gilmore Girls."
Moving on... an article
about Nathan Fillion guesting on BtVS (he began his arc tonight in "Dirty Girls"). Kinda fun with some nice Joss quotage about Nathan.
And some more articles from Sci Fi Wire
: first one
has some quotes from David Greenwalt about the end of BtVS, second
is about Seth Green taking a part in the Scooby-Doo sequel (which happens to co-star SMG!), and the last article
is about the final episodes of BtVS, including airdates.
