Joss Whedon Returns To TV

with Eliza Dushku, no less.
Dushku will star in the Whedon-penned series "Dollhouse," which has been given a seven-episode order by Fox. News came as an extra-big Halloween treat for Whedon fans, considered some of the most passionate in all of TV. ... "Dollhouse" follows a top-secret world of people programmed with different personalities, abilities and memories depending on their mission.

After each assignment -- which can be physical, romantic or even illegal -- the characters have their memories wiped clean, and are sent back to a lab (dubbed the "Dollhouse"). Show centers on Dushku's character, Echo, as she slowly begins to develop some self-awareness, which impacts her missions.

Whedon has already hammered out the basic outline for all seven segs. Barring a strike, Fox hopes to have the show in production by spring, giving the net an opportunity to be so far ahead of schedule by fall that it could potentially air a full season uninterrupted by breaks..
Squee! (This was unexpected!)

I'll be keeping an eye out for that one, thanks for the heads up. Knowing Australian programming however, it will probably be three years before it is shown here, they'll screen it at a different time every week in the wee small hours of the morning, episodes will be out of order and they'll fail to screen the final. Ah thank you jebus for dvds
