First Look: FOX’s DOLLHOUSE – Pictures & Videos

Dollhouse - Cast

It’s time to take a closer look at FOX’s new shows on its 2008-09 primetime schedule. First up, DOLLHOUSE.

I have two words for you, Joss Whedon. That’s pretty much all I need to hear to let me know that I need to check out this show. After watching the promo and preview clip below, I am intrigued and excited to watch the first episode. So far Joss Whedon has never disappointed me and I hope this show is another genius move from his part. Also, how exciting is it that Eliza Dushku and Tahmoh Penikett are part of the cast? They are actually both featured in the preview clip.

Make sure you keep an eye out for Dollhouse this Fall.

Synopsis: ECHO (Eliza 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 (Dichen Lachman) and VICTOR (Enver Gjokaj) carry out engagements assigned by ADELLE (Olivia Williams), 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 (Harry Lennix, “Commander in Chief,” 24), returns to the mysterious Dollhouse where her thoughts, feelings and experiences are erased by TOPHER (Fran Kranz), 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) pieces together clues that lead him closer to the Dollhouse, while 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. But with each new engagement, comes a new memory and increased danger inside and outside the Dollhouse.
