Whedon’s ‘Dollhouse’ To Begin Production in April
space
T.E. Pouncey   |  

Eliiza DushkuEliza Dushku will star as a mind-altered secret agent in Joss Whedon‘s new series Dollhouse .

Joss Whedon‘s obsession with shadowy authority figures and Eliza Dushku continues in his new series Dollhouse for Fox television.

The series, which begins production on April 23 in Los Angeles, stars Dushku as a secret agent whose personality is artificially created each time she is sent on a mission. Many remember Dushku as ‘bad-girl’ Slayer and Buffy nemesis in Whedon’s previous hit TV series Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

In Dollhouse, Dushku is cast as Echo, part of a collective of men and women called “Actives” or “Dolls” who have different personalities imprinted for each mission. The “Actives” can be imprinted with countless different personalities and sent to solve crimes, gather intelligence, and occasionally do good deeds. Between missions, the agents have their memories erased and live in a monitored dormitory called “The Dollhouse.” Although “Actives” are recruited as volunteers, their missions are illegal. The Actives are pursued by both a Government agency and an insane former Active.

Another aspect of the storyline is that Echo is becoming self-aware even in her inactive state when her memories are supposed to be erased.

Other Dollhouse characters include:
* Paul Ballard — a federal agent who will become Echo’s love interest
* Boyd Langton — Echo’s “Handler” at the Dollhouse.
* Sierra – Echo’s gorgeous friend at the Dollhouse.
* Adelle DeWitt — an emotionless woman who runs the Dollhouse.
* Topher Brink — the Active’s programmer who seems to enjoy changing and altering their personalities a little too much.

Whedon is scheduled to write and direct the early episodes. There is no word yet on whether Dollhouse will be on the Fox TV fall schedule or if it will air next January.

  6. I thought that too Dr. Royce but I guess they are the only ones willing to take a chance on the show or they put up the most dollars for the show.

    I would have tried to get CW to take a chance before dealing with fox’s mismanagement hell.
