FOX's Dollhouse (Trailer & Preview)
What happens when you put together the great mind of Joss Whedon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer") and kick-ass appeal of Buffy alumna Eliza Dushku? One of the most anticipated shows of the 2008-2009 season. FOX's "Dollhouse" premieres in January 2009.
ECHO (Dushku) is an "Active," a member of a highly illegal and underground group who have had their personalities wiped clean so they can be imprinted with any number of new personas.
Confined to a secret facility known as the "Dollhouse," Echo and the other Actives including SIERRA and VICTOR carry out engagements assigned by ADELLE one of the Dollhouse leaders.
The engagements cater to the wealthy, powerful and connected, and require the Actives to immerse themselves in all manner of scenarios romantic, criminal, uplifting, dangerous, comical and the occasional "pro bono" good deed.
After each scenario, Echo, always under the watchful eye of her handler BOYD, returns to the mysterious Dollhouse where her thoughts, feelings and experiences are erased by TOPHER the Dollhouse's genius programmer.
Echo enters the next scenario with no memory of before. Or does she? As the series progresses, FBI Agent PAUL SMITH (Tahmoh Penikett, "Battlestar Galactica") pieces together clues that lead him closer to the Dollhouse.
Meanwhile Echo stops forgetting, her memories begin to return and she slowly pieces together her mysterious past. DOLLHOUSE revolves around Echo's blossoming self-awareness and her desire to discover her true identity.
The show will air on FOX Mondays (at 8/7c) leading into a new season of "24."
