Ok, this could be awesome.
The last I heard, the Buffy reboot was in the hands of the people who brought us the movie. Which has it’s charms, but wasn’t quite in the same league as the series.
And Monica Owusu-Breen has serious genre TV skills, from being one of the better Alias and Lost writers, to Revolution, Agents of SHIELD and Fringe. Bringing in somebody who actually likes genre TV and characters is a good plan.
(Yes, I’m a fanboy throwing a little shade at Marti Noxon. Not because she’s a woman but because she has flat-out said she hated writing stories with fantastic elements in them and wanted to strip out a lot of what made the original series good in her short stint as showrunner.)
