QUICK TAKES

Fox gives 'Dollhouse' a doghouse time slot

November 08, 2008|Maria Elena Fernandez

When Fox President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly first heard Joss Whedon's pitch for a series called "Dollhouse," he was so taken that he later told a reporter, "He had me at 'Hello.' I was kinda drunk with the surprise of it all."

Reilly no longer appears to be in a love-drunk daze about the much-anticipated project, because Fox announced that "Dollhouse" will premiere in one of the worst time slots in all of television: Fridays at 9 p.m., beginning Feb. 13.

"Dollhouse" has had its share of ups and downs in its short life. Whedon, the creator of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," shut down production in September for 2 1/2 weeks to rewrite scripts and wound up shooting the pilot again.

The show stars Eliza Dushku and centers on a group of people who are imprinted with the personalities and abilities they need to carry out specific missions. After they complete their duties, their memories are wiped clean and they live together like children in Dollhouse, a futuristic dormitory and lab.
