Joss Whedon’s Playing With A Dollhouse!
Joss Whedon’s returning to TV! – WOO and indeed HOOOOO!
As any regular reader will know know, here at Geektown we’re HUGE fans of Joss’s, and we say any news that he’s coming back to the small screen can only be good.
So what is it?
Well, it’s not in the Buffyverse. It does however, star a buffy alumni – The lovely Eliza Dushku.
It’s called ‘Dollhouse‘:
“Dollhouse stars Dushku as Echo, one of a group of secret agents living in a futuristic dorm. Each has the ability to be imprinted with custom personalities and abilities for special assignments. When they return, their newly acquired memories are wiped. The show follows Echo as she takes on a variety of assignmentsâ€”some romantic, some adventurous, some uplifting, some illegalâ€”and gains awareness of her role and confinement.”
Fox has given a seven-episode commitment for the show… Humm… We all know in the past Fox’s idea of commitment has been in the past… Joss says “Itâ€™s a brand new day over there. Itâ€™s a completely new bunch of people and they seem really intelligent and supportive.” I really really really hope your right. I hate to see another Firefly incident…
I’m totally psyched about getting a new Whedon run show (Tim Minear, Joss’s Angel & Firefly partner in crime, has been roped in too). Also happy to see Eliza Dushku in a new Whedon vehicle (happy to see Eliza in most things actually).
