TV Week Interviews Joss
TVWeek.com interviewed Joss about Dollhouse and, as always, his answers are genius:
TVWeek: How did this idea come about?
Joss Whedon: Rather suddenly. It just sort of blurted forth. I was having lunch with Eliza and she was talking about wanting to do something and I made up the show. We went to Fox and they said, “Yeeeaeah!”
TVWeek: “Buffy” fans are sure to be excited, too.
Whedon: If they could only see what’s in my head right now…. They should be.
TVWeek: Every “Firefly” fan is going to wonder: Was there any reluctance to return to Fox?
Whedon: It’s a brand new day over there. It’s a completely new bunch of people and they seem really intelligent and supportive. Walking back into the building was a little strange. But no. It was absolutely the last thing I saw coming, but absolutely the right thing to do. It’s like one of those movies where you keep waiting for somebody to fall in love with the hot girl. It was sort of meant to be. … I mean, a network is a network. They have an agenda and it is not yours. And that’s OK, as long as you work hard to make the agendas coincide.
TVWeek: So they’ll air the episodes in sequence this time?
Whedon [laughs]: One can almost guarantee.
