Joss Whedon, Eliza Dushku Reunite for Fox Series



Joss Whedon fans, listen up: The man behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel is coming back to television with a a new series for Fox that could premiere as early as this spring.

What's behind Whedon's return? Eliza Dushku, who will star in the series. The actress recently signed a big development deal with Fox and then called up Whedon to talk; while they were at lunch, he hit on the idea for the show.

The series, Dollhouse, focuses on a group of futuristic agents — including Dushku's character, Echo — who are given various personalities and skills in order to complete special assignments; at the end of the mission, their memories are wiped clean. Whedon told TV Week: "It deals with our darkest impulses and our best ones. It deals with all the things I like to deal with — strength, weakness, power and corruption." Fox has already ordered seven episodes of the hourlong drama.

So, Whedon fans, your thoughts? Liking the concept? Worried it might get the Firefly treatment?
