Tim Minear - Bbc.co.uk (about Faith Spin-Off)

Tuesday 15 April 2003, by Webmaster

Angel producer Tim Minear has revealed details of the aborted Faith spin-off series planned by Mutant Enemy.

"The show was basically going to be Faith Meets Kung Fu," Minear told Femme Fatale magazine. "It would have been Faith, probably on a motorcycle, crossing the Earth, trying to find her place in the world.

"I’m sure it would get an arc at some point, but the idea of her rooted somewhere seemed wrong to me. The idea of her constantly on the move seemed right. And she broke out of prison (on Angel) so there would have been some people after her."

Sadly, due to Dushku’s commitment to new Fox pilot Heroine, the spin-off was not to be. "Eliza was gracious, kind and wonderful, but she felt like she wanted to do something new," said Tim."

"I feel kind of bad," Eliza commented, "but I also need to get something else going. We created this character five years ago, and it’s the kind of thing where I want to be standing on my own two feet a little bit - and not be following in Buffy’s footsteps."
