SHARE Trailer out for new Joss Whedon series, ‘Dollhouse’

More midseason TV to look forward to: It’s the new show from Joss Whedon (creator of “Buffy” and “Firefly”), “Dollhouse”!

The show stars Eliza Dushku with a completely mutable personality …

Explanations from the Sci Fi Channel:

“Dushku (Buffy’s Faith) plays Echo, an ‘Active,’ or member of a highly illegal and underground group of individuals who have had their personalities wiped clean so they can be imprinted with any number of new personas. Hired by the wealthy, powerful and connected, the Actives don’t just perform their hired roles, they wholly become them — with mind, personality and physiology — to do whatever a client wants or needs. Whether imprinted to be a lover, an assassin, a corporate negotiator or a best friend, the Actives know no other life than the specific engagements they are in at that time.

“Confined between missions to a secret facility known as the “Dollhouse,” Echo and the other Actives — including Sierra (Dichen Lachman) and Victor (Enver Gjokaj) — are assigned engagements by Adelle (Olivia Williams), one of the Dollhouse leaders. After each scenario, Echo, always under the watchful eye of her handler Boyd (Harry Lennix), returns to the mysterious Dollhouse where her thoughts, feelings, experiences and knowledge are erased by Topher (Fran Kranz), the Dollhouse’s genius programmer. But is Echo acquiring a memory of her own? Dollhouse is slated to air in January.”
