Joss Whedon's Dollhouse

"Battlestar Galactica" co-star Tahmoh Penikett, Fran Kranz ("Welcome to the Captain"), Australian Dichen Lachman and Enver Gjokaj have moved into Joss Whedon's "Dollhouse." The four join Eliza Dushku on the 20th Century Fox TV-produced drama, which received a seven-episode order shortly before the strike.

"Dollhouse" revolves around a group of young men and women, aka "Dolls," who are imprinted with different personalities for different assignments. They have no memories of their previous lives, until Echo (Dushku) begins to try to find out who she was.

Penikett will play Paul Smith, an FBI field agent obsessed with the urban myth of Dollhouse and a twisted romantic foil for Echo. Kranz will play Topher Brink, a twentysomething genius programr responsible for imprinting the dolls. Lachman will play Sierra, a doll like Echo and her friend, who has every personality in the world but her own. Gjokaj will play Victor, also a doll and a friend of Echo's, who is childlike when he's inactive, and everything from Errol Flynn to young DeNiro when he's active.

Basic premises never sound that great when they're boiled down to one paragraph.  With Whedon at the helm, I'm hoping for something a little awesome.  And Dichen Lachman is very attractive...   :)

She'd have to be, to continue being successful with a name like that. ;)

I adore Joss Whedon. If anyone can take a stupid premise and make it awesome, he can. I have high hopes for this show and I hope he and Fox can get continue to get along.

It's Joe 90 sexed up.

I bet the theme tune won't be as fab, or F.A.B.

I'll be watching it., for sure.

I'm curious to see which writers from Team Joss will show up in this project.

Let me venture a guess.  All the assignments will require all the female Dolls to dress up like hookers a la Alias.
I'm all out for kicks...and every inch of me spells EXCITEMENT!

While I've liked pretty much everything Tim Minear's done, he's the kiss of death for new TV series of late.  ;)

it doesn't sound like a stupid premise to me.  Programmable assassins?  Lotsa hawt women?  Joss Whedon at the helm?  What's not to like?

It's not that I thought it was stupid. It just confused me. :P I'll give it the benefit of the doubt.

Yeah, I'm not all up in the "Joss is perfect" camp but he's really good at TV so I'll give anything he has a hand in a look.
