Joss Whedon Rearranges Dollhouse Schedule

Eliza DushkuAlthough we still have months to go before the premiere of , Joss Whedon followers may already have a reason to be worried. The show’s creator has just announced that he’ll be shooting a whole new pilot for his FOX show.

Dollhouse, the second Whedon creation for that network (he was also the man behind Firefly), stars Buffy vet as one of several agents for hire. Their abilities and memories, which are specifically crafted for each client, are immediately erased after an assignment is completed.

After showing Episode #1 to FOX execs - and even friend David Lynch - it was agreed that series could start off on a better note. In fact, some apparently found the segment confusing. To remedy the situation, Whedon is crafting a prequel that will air just before the pilot episode. He believes this will help introduce the characters better.

Fox Hypes Up Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse

Cast of Joss Whedon's Dollhouse

Feeling quite guilty that I haven’t come across the Dollhouse trailer until now, I felt like I should make up for it by doing Fox a favor and spreading the love!

The trailer for this fall’s sci-fi drama (which you can check out after the jump) has been out and about on YouTube and select TV spots, getting many pretty excited about its premiere. After all, it is  Joss Whedon’s first series since Firefly, which went off the air back in 2003 (surprisingly with the same network his new show is on).

Dollhouse, starring former Buffy the Vampire Slayer (BTVS) favorite Eliza Dushku, focuses on a clandestine, illegal operation carried out by agents who have their memories and personalities completely erased after each mission. Dushku plays Echo, one operative who slowly starts to learn more and more about where she works over time—she becomes a known flaw in the system, if you will.

The series premieres in January on Fox, right before 24 in the Monday 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT spot.

Long-Awaited Buffy the Vampire Slayer Reunion

BTVS Reunion

It has been nearly five years since that fateful May night when BTVS fans witnessed the end of their beloved TV series. The following years, fans have intently watched as their favorite characters have branched off to new projects, leaving little hope of a BTVS movie, which so many “Buffy” lovers have longed and hoped for. Unfortunately, there are still no concrete plans of a movie, but fans have the Paley Center for Media (formerly the Museum of Television and Radio) to be eternally grateful to—they have announced a reunion on Thursday, March 20th at the historic Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, CA!

‘Buffy’ Star On Board For Celebrity Apprentice

Charisma CarpenterWhile it’s doubtful a retooling of could bring back Season One ratings, NBC keeps plugging away on next season’s production.  As reported, will be pulling a stunt out of the bag of tricks for his next outing. This time around, the apprentice pool will be comprised of camera-desperate celebrities.  (What exactly would they win anyway? The chance to stay for free at his next hotel?)

For fans, this ratings ploy may give them at least one thing to care about:  Charisma Carpenter.  According to TV Guide, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer star will be competing to get in Trump’s good graces.  Given Donald’s inappropriate tendency to comment on his ‘attractive’ candidates, Carpenter (also a former Playboy subject) could make it far in the competition.  But I’m just hoping her inner-Cordelia will surface to kick monster butt the next time he makes a creepy remark about his daughter.
