Beverly Hills, California – Joss Whedon’s acclaimed Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, which first aired in 2008 hosted on the Hulu player via the official Dr. Horrible website, will make its television debut on October 9 on The CW.

Created as a three-part online musical by Whedon (The Avengers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), the series stars Neil Patrick Harris as Billy, A.K.A. Dr. Horrible, a budding super villain whose plans for world domination continually go awry. His two goals: getting accepted into the Evil League of Evil, and working up the guts to speak to his laundromat crush Penny (Felicia Day). The only thing standing in Billy’s way is his superhero arch nemesis, Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion).
