Showtime Creating 'Dexter' Prequel as Animated Webisodes Live Feed blog

Showtime is creating 12 animated webisodes that will be a prequel to "Dexter," according to James Hibberd of The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed blog.

Michael C. Hall, who plays the title character on the series, will do his character's voice on the episodes, which are called "Earl's Cuts." The webisodes will explore how Dexter "honed his killing craft," Hibberd says, and are expected to be online this fall.

Some of the show's cast and crew spoke about the project at Comic-Con in San Diego yesterday.
