Angel Doubtful For UPN
Joss Whedon, co-creator of The WB’s canceled vampire series Angel, told TV Guide Online that he doubts the series could move to UPN next year, much as its predecessor show Buffy the Vampire Slayer did after the frog network staked it. "We’ve talked about the possibility, but it’s a long shot," Whedon told the site. A UPN spokeswoman had no comment for TV Guide, but an Angel insider told the site that executives at Angel’s production studio Twentieth Century Fox are putting together a proposal for UPN.
Whedon, meanwhile, reiterated that he’d love to have Buffy star Sarah Michelle Gellar make a guest appearance in the Angel series finale, though Gellar has already said she’s not interested in appearing on Angel this season. "We’ll put out some feelers [again] to see if there’s some interest there," Whedon told the site. "We’d certainly love to have her." Gellar is currently in Tokyo shooting The Grudge, a supernatural horror film.
