Joss and Summer on their next project 'The Serving Girl'. Find out if it will ever come to fruition.

I can't hurry up and wait any faster than I already have been.
Seems like the situation's the same as it ever was, sadly. Whenever they both have time, they'll do it. Busy busy people.
Nice to know it's still coming along.
Clone AlisonSummer, bicks.
I want to see her dance on IMAX. Because ballet should be life-sized or bigger. Or much bigger. As one who's never seen one.
This is so exciting =D
It's news like these that make me go crazy and wish for another strike…
"It's news like these that make me go crazy and wish for another strike…"

It's so ironic that they do their jobs best when they're on strike, in that they [writers] are paid to be creative, and yet they're at their most creative when they're not being paid, but just have time to think instead.

Not that it's a good thing not being paid . . .

Anyway, perhaps they can do it in between seasons? I'm not sure if that qualifies as "free time" or not.

That's what Summer means by "the next hiatus" I think (that's what those in "the biz" call the summer break between seasons).
In case anyone is wondering, if it does get greenlit a category will be created for it.
I just checked and there doesn't appear to be a domain regged for it. Hiatus can also means when a show shuts production, but I think I'll get stoned (and I'll stone myself) if that conversation starts again.
Hah, gossi, I checked too.

But I'm broke, and tired from all the ELE stuff anyway.

So you're saying there's cause for panic gossi ? Aaaaaaargghhh ! Whedon Alert Level - Mahogany with Pine detailing !

I think it's sometimes used euphemistically to mean when a show shuts production (i've seen cancellation referred to as "permanent hiatus" e.g. on TWOP) in the same way you might see "they've chosen not to renew the show" instead of "it's cancelled" but it actually means "a gap".
That article suggested that "The Serving Girl" should be released on the web, just like Dr. Horrible. Before that, why not send it to the Oscars? Maybe a film of the ballet might get a nomination for Live Action Short Subject.
Didn't Firefly take a hiatus in December 2002? She's on a long gap year, that show. Bugger the Oscars, I say.

Yeah that'd be that "permanent hiatus" I mentioned.

Funnily enough I put 'firefly hiatus' (sans quotes) into Google and guess what came up second. Caroline's comment pretty much sums it up. You may not ever come back off hiatus but that doesn't make it the same as cancellation. Here, for instance, is an article about what ASH did during one Buffy hiatus.
Well, I'll be very happy when this comes about. And I want them to release it just like Dr. Horrible. Because that was fun.
I honestly don't care how they release it as long as it gets released.
You'd actually be surprised how many times I search Google for something and end up back at Whedonesque. It's like being Neo at The Train Station, I swear. "Shit!".
It's like Whedonesque is some sort of information spider sitting in the middle of the web, gathering links unto its unholy bosom so that eventually all human knowledge will be contained within. Or maybe it's Skynet or something. Hopefully membership will have some perks if and when it becomes sentient.
Interesting. Not many people do classical ballet; it might open up the genre to a whole new audience. I used to go watch "Swan Lake" with my mom as a kid, and my cousin danced in the "Nutcracker" with Michael Barishnakov (she was one of the rats & sugar plum fairies.) It was fantastic. You kind of have to know the story before you go in, mostly, to understand what's going on - but even if you don't know anything about it, a good ballet is gorgeous.
I made Google do all the work for me - I set up these little automatic reports that it e-mails to me every time "Doctor Horrible" or "Doctor Who" is mentioned on the web. A lot of it's crap, but there's only a few articles to ignore every day - and every week or so something awesome comes in with the crap.

It's easy to set up - do a news search on something nifty, then look at the bottom of the page where it asks if you want an automatic report on this search. Click on that.
Im just happy that joss is still planning little projects~
It sounds as if Joss has already written the music, so we should have another soundtrack to look forward to when this is done. Can't wait.
When Joss finishes with one of the clipboard items, does he put something new on the clipboard? Or does the clipboard just stay empty for a while? Why do I think there were 12 of them?
Because at Comic-Con 2007, he said there were 12 of them.
Thank you B!x,

I was worried that I was just thinking up a number and not remembering a number.

...story of my life.
This makes me insanely happy. Love ballet, love Summer, love Joss. There is no bad.
"I want to see her dance on IMAX. Because ballet should be life-sized or bigger. Or much bigger. As one who's never seen one."

Pointy, go see one. Fall/winter is ballet season in most big cities. Ticket prices are comparable to live theater or medium-famous rock bands. If you have a small child who is a relative, take them to the Nutcracker around Christmas time. Swan Lake has beautiful music by Tchaikovsky. I see those are also the two ballets Bookwench mentioned, maybe because they are among the most popular. Not being a huge dance fan myself, I would recommend not starting with Les Sylphides.
Yea for ballet. But this isn't really news. Did I miss anything in the 3 weeks I was gone? Besides the ELE? Seems pretty mellow, but I may be looking in the wrong place.

3 months til Dollhouse!
It's news that (1) they haven't forgotten about the project and (2) there's a possibility of using hiatus to do it.
Like we would allow them to forget about a project? *chuckles* If it's one thing whe-persons have, it's memory.
It's like being Neo at The Train Station, I swear. "Shit!".


Tickets, please!

Or maybe it's Skynet or something. Hopefully membership will have some perks if and when it becomes sentient.


You get your own personal Cameron to program any way you want! Er, lets keep it clean, people.
10 DONT TERMINATE SAJE
20 GOTO 10

I dunno, she's probably already pretty decent at 'Call of Duty 4' and chess, seems like there might not be much need for programming. I could teach "her" tic-tac-toe for the sake of tradition I suppose.
