Looking forward to: Dollhouse (from Joss Whedon)

Joss Whedon has done a lot a great things for pop culture in the last 15 or so years - from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Toy Story to Angel to Firefly and a bunch of other geekosphere stuff.

Good news is that he has a new show coming up called Dollhouse, starring Eliza Dushku - Faith from Buffy (you know, the hotter, bad-girl slayer).

This is the gist of it.

In Dollhouse, Dushku plays a young woman named Echo; one of a group of men and women who can be neurally imprinted with "personality packages"; encompassing things such as memory, muscle memory, skills, and language. Sheltered in a secret futuristic dormitory/laboratory named the "Dollhouse"; these individuals are imprinted with customized personas for performing any of a wide variety of assignments—that can be romantic, adventurous, outlandish, illegal, etc.—and mind-wiped into a child-like state with no memories after completing an assignment. The series follows Echo as she begins to develop a persistent memory and self-awareness across imprints and wipes.
