Astonishing interview on Rolling Stone with the maker of Buffy and Firefly who is talking about deserting TV for small-scale web series where he has ultimate control!

In the current issue, Joss Whedon, the George Lucas of television, reveals why working on his triumphant return to the small screen, Dollhouse, has convinced him to abandon TV for good. His alternative medium: Web serials. He began making the sci-fi musical Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (which stars Neil Patrick Harris) during the writers' strike, streamed a few episodes online for free, and struck it big when they went onsale at iTunes.

It sounds incredible but it could be on the cards - I know that my next TV is going to have WiFi connection to the house network for streaming net video

I've been thinking of doing that, for the reasons mentioned. My only problem is how to get the word out there about my magnum opus.
