I saw this story today in the LA Times. While, again, it is someone who has lots of money to invest, it does show somw movement into the new media world by traditional media folks.

Joss Whedon’s ‘Dr. Horrible’ trailer hits the net
11:26 AM PT, Jun 25 2008
Below is a short trailer for “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog,” the much-anticipated three-part musical from “Buffy” creator Joss Whedon.
“Dr. Horrible” stars Neil Patrick Harris, Felicia Day and Nathan Fillion, and Whedon describes it as follows: “It’s the story of a low-rent super-villain, the hero who keeps beating him up, and the cute girl from the laundromat he’s too shy to talk to.”
The series, comprised of three 10-minute episodes, is poised to premiere on the Internet–most likely next month. Whedon began working on it during the writers strike, and it represents his first major experiment with Web-original programming.
