The article reports on the plan by Warner Bros. Television to permanently shut down its business operations in September 2006. It will rebroadcast the pilot episodes of several television series, including "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Dawson's Creek." There will also be tributes featuring hundreds of artists who have appeared on Warner Bros.-produced television series over the years. According to some executives, television series such as "Smallville" and "7th Heaven" will remain because they will continue to be aired at CW Network Television.
