Joss Whedon's Dollhouse is probably the most anticipated show of TV's midseason lineup — not just because of the talent involved but also because of the behind-the-scenes drama that's led to the original pilot being discarded (and a healthy amount of speculation that the show might be essentially dead before it even premieres).
But now there's reason to believe the show might see the light of day after all: a new trailer, which more clearly lays out the show's premise than anything we've seen before. In it, we're introduced to Echo (Eliza Dushku), an "active" who can live any life, have any skill, and do anything — a life many of us would dream of, except that she's programmed to do it and has no choice in her role.
It's an intriguing trailer with several gorgeous shots of Dushku (one under water, another inside the pod in which the "actives" sleep), and it seems like it could pair well with Fringe when it premieres. You can check it out if you read more.
