More Dollhouse Details
Kristin over at E! Online has even more details and semi-SPOILERS about Joss Whedon’s new TV series for FOX, the Eliza Dushku (pictured, left) starrer Dollhouse. We’ve already reported extensively on the new show, and buy now you pretty much know all you need to know. But just in case you don’t, here are the breakdowns: the first episode, the pilot, will be called “Echo”, which is the name of Eliza Dushku’s character; BSG’s Tahmoh Penikett plays an FBI agent and Echo’s eventual love interest; and Olivia Williams plays Adelle Dewitt, the head of the Dollhouse, where the “dolls” are kept until they’re needed for a mission.
The logline don’t lie: “Echo (Eliza Dushku) is a young woman who is literally everybody’s fantasy. She is one of a group of men and women who can be imprinted with personality packages, including memories, skills, language—even muscle memory—for different assignments. The assignments can be romantic, adventurous, outlandish, uplifting, sexual and/or very illegal. When not imprinted with a personality package, Echo and the others are basically mind-wiped, living like children in a futuristic dorm/lab dubbed the Dollhouse, with no memory of their assignments—or of much else. The show revolves around the childlike Echo’s burgeoning self-awareness, and her desire to know who she was before, a desire that begins to seep into her various imprinted personalities and puts her in danger both in the field and in the closely monitored confines of the Dollhouse.”
