Nostalgia television is back. Recycling the showbiz way: Article discussing the resurgence of classic US TV series on European TV and the trend towards film remakes of classic TV series. Mentions Joss and Wonder Woman as one example.
Interesting article describing how the nostalgia factor and plethora of cable channels is driving the re-release of classic TV series and how some classic TV series get re-released on the coattails of their film remakes. Or how the snake bites itself in the tail.
It also mentions the trend towards film remakes:
The success of such boxoffice remakes as "Charlie's Angels" and "Starsky & Hutch" has itself triggered a slew of retro reinventions, including an upcoming theatrical version of "Dallas," a new NBC Universal formatting of "Kojak" and the forthcoming Joss Whedon-directed project "Wonder Woman."
The whole concept should suit Joss just fine as he is no stranger to recycling from film to series or series to film (and potentially series). This could go on forever.
