Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog

This has already been all over the interwebs the last few days, but I'm just back online after a few days of travel, so sue me.

During the recent(ish) writers strike, I wondered what the writers were doing to occupy their time, and exercise their mental muscles. I know that, even if I didn't have any paying writing gigs for a few months' time, I'd have to write something or I'd go nuts. Well, here's the answer for what Joss Whedon, at least, did to keep occupied:

Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog
During the WGA strike Joss Whedon started writing a three part musical series for the internet. Each of the three episodes will be approximately ten minutes each.

Co-writers for the internet feature are Joss’ brothers Zack and Jed and Jed’s Fiancé Maurissa Tancharoen . The writing and shooting have been completed and the series is now in post-production.

“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.” says Whedon.

“Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” will star Neil Patrick Harris as Dr. Horrible, Nathan Fillion as Captain Hammer, Felicia Day as Penny and a cast of dozens.”
And here's the teaser:
