Slayathon barred from airing BtVS episodes by Fox. Due to ongoing litigation, Fox will not allow the Slayathon charity event to show any episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer at this year's fundraiser. However, they will consent to let them show episodes of Angel. This is the 7th year for the Slayathon, which raises money for Make-A-Wish.
Because of Fox's ongoing copyright litigation surrounding "Buffy," they cannot grant us permission to show episodes of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" at the 2008 Slay-A-Thon. However, they can allow us to show "Angel" episodes.
We are "revamping" our 2008 event and will show "Angel" exclusively this year. While we are disappointed, we appreciate Fox's willingness to compromise and continue their support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Please remember the most important part of Slay-A-Thon is the wishes we are able to grant for children with life-threatening medical conditions.
