The WB returns in dot com form

Michigan J. Frog, we missed ya!

Buffy's back on WB's webRemember The WB? 

Okay, so it wasn’t that long ago that the netlet partnered up with its baby brother UPN to create The CW. Still, I miss the days of the dancing frog, the fun network promos and the whole young and quirky feel of The WB. Apparently, I’m not alone in that since Warner Brothers Television is about to launch — an online version of the old network. will feature full-length streaming episodes of those TV shows that put the network on the map, from “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” to “Roswell,” “Smallville” and even other Warner properties such as “Friends.” 

The site will be designed to be interactive, allowing users to clip their favorite scenes, create mash-ups and send bits of video to their friends. 

In addition to the old programming, will offer several new interactive features created especially for the site. These include “Sorority Forever,” a mystery from “Charlie’s Angels” director McG, “Chadam,” a 3D animation project, a role reversal series from the creator of “Laguna Beach” and a serialized thriller called “Lockdown.”

For the youngsters in the house (and those young at heart), Warner Brothers will also be launching a companion site,, which will feature videos from the enormous library of Looney Tunes, Hanna-Barbera and D.C. Comic cartoons.

Look for to beta launch in May and to launch in August.
