Whedonverse Track...

Whedonverse Track...
« on: April 21, 2017, 09:18:24 AM »
Okay, so I've been trying to find out exactly what the deal is for the Whedon Universe Track.  I had so much fun at the
hootenanny last year and the "Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog" sing-along was a blast--One of the highlights of my trip.  My questions is: Which track will absorb my obsession with everything Whedon, especially with Nathan Fillion on the guest list
*swoon*?
Billy, you're driving a spork into your leg.

Well, my days of not taking you seriously are certainly coming to a middle.

As the old joke goes with con, nothing is official until the event is over...  ;D and who knows when we'll get any update from the tracks. BUT, my best guess is Firefly-related content will get absorbed by the American Sci-fi Classics track. With Nathan being only there for one day, he may also just be thrown into a Main Programming panel in a big ball room.

I understand, but alas poor "Dr. Horrible"...
Thanks for the info!

Hope we can get into Nathan's panel (assuming he is having one).  And *swoon* is right!

Going forward the Whedon shows are being split up between several tracks.

Firefly is now covered by the new Military SciFi Media Track.  They have a Facebook discussion group here...

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1701370370114274/

Buffy and Angel are now covered by the Urban Fantasy track.  For information about their plans the best place to follow them is on their Facebook page here...

https://www.facebook.com/DCUrbanFantasy/

Previously the Whedon track used to alternate between doing Dr. Horrible one year and the Buffy Horror Picture Show the next year.  No official word yet on their plans for 2017.

The folks from the Whedon track are planning to do a social event for this year.  They have said that they will be posting details on the old track Facebook page...

I haven't heard anything official on where the other properties are going but as soon as I hear anything I'll post it in this thread.


Take care,

Kevin

Thanks, KB!
"You and I remember Budapest very differently."

"I like feet."

"Am I being tangible? ...Gary?"

"How quickly can we buy this building?"

"More drinking. Less feeling."

"Whatever just happened, blame it on the pig."

there's apparently unofficial word out there that it's Buffy this year
"You and I remember Budapest very differently."

"I like feet."

"Am I being tangible? ...Gary?"

"How quickly can we buy this building?"

"More drinking. Less feeling."

"Whatever just happened, blame it on the pig."

P.S. While I'm not officially a track volunteer I do help Carol out with some of the track's social media accounts so I tend to be up to speed on things.

the single show/fandom tracks are essentially a thing of the past. Excluding Trek and Star Wars they have almost (or maybe all) evolved into genre tracks or been split up.

I think part of the reason why is because there is now SO much genre TV content.

There will be over 500 scripted shows on TV/streaming this year.
