Joss Whedon does Dollhouse

This is the big news in TV today...

Joss Whedon is tapping Eliza Dushku for a new TV series called Dollhouse. What is it about? TV Guide sums it up:

1. It's a one-hour drama produced by Twentieth Century Fox to air on Fox. The first of the seven episodes to which the network has committed could premiere as early as spring.

2. It's called Dollhouse because that's the nickname of the high-tech lab where a group of human chalkboards are kept between assignments.

3. Human chalkboards?! Yes! What else would you call characters like Dushku's Echo who can be given new memories, skills and even personalities, then stripped of them just as quickly, leaving them virtual children?

Incidentally, Joss Whedon is directing tonight's episode of The Office.
