Can’t believe I missed this….
Right before the writer’s strike hit, Variety reported that Joss Whedon has a seven-episode order from Fox for a new TV series, called “Dollhouse.”
The show will star Eliza Dushku (Faith from Buffy) and follows a top-secret world of people programmed with different personalities, abilities and memories depending on their mission, after which they have their memories wiped clean, and are sent back to a lab (dubbed the “Dollhouse”). The series will supposedly focus on Dushku’s character, Echo, as she slowly begins to develop some self-awareness, which impacts her missions.
The article says that “barring a strike, Fox hopes to have the show in production by spring” — so obviously that’s no longer happening. But the contracts are signed, so once the strike gets resolved, we should be getting new Jossy Goodness — and dealing with Spy Girls, even!
