  • Episode Description
  • The cast and creative team of Dollhouse discuss the show's difficult "birthing process" and other topics. This William S. Paley Television Festival evening honors Dollhouse, a drama series about an organization that erases the identities of its workers – known as "dolls" – and reprograms them for clients' specific needs. Matt Roush (TV Guide) moderates the following panelists: series creator/executive producer/writer/director Joss Whedon; co-executive producer/writer Elizabeth Craft; co-executive producer Sarah Fain; and cast members Eliza Dushku (Echo), Fran Kranz (Topher), Dichen Lachman (Sierra), and Miracle Laurie (Mellie). Joss Whedon's new Fox series Dollhouse reunites him with erstwhile bad-girl Slayer and redoubtable butt-kicker Eliza Dushku, this time playing Echo, an "active"-an identity-less, programmable super-agent-in the employ of the mysterious Dollhouse organization. Dark, disturbing, and spiked with unexpected humor and pathos, Dollhouse recalls Whedon's previous classic series while carving out a distinctively mesmerizing, unsettling atmosphere all its own. Panelists touch on such topics as: the show's difficult "birthing process"; the challenge for Dushku and fellow "dolls" of playing a different personality each week while projecting the same core character; why Dollhouse is the most "dangerous" show that Whedon has produced; and if having female writers negates criticism that the show objectifies women.moreless
