DOLLHOUSE
SEASON ONE

Eliza Dushku Stars In Joss Whedon’s Thrilling New Fantasy Drama
Arriving On Blu-ray And DVD July 28
From Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment

Loaded With Bonus Materials Including The Never-Before-Seen Episode
“Epitaph One” And The Original Unaired Pilot “Echo”

CENTURY CITY, Calif. – In a city of millions, many souls get lost… Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment presents a glimpse into a world where the wealthy, powerful and connected come to play when “Dollhouse” Season One becomes “active” on Blu-ray and DVD July 28. From the mind of Joss Whedon, the creator of groundbreaking cult favorites “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” and “Firefly,” “Dollhouse” stars Eliza Dushku (“Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” “Tru Calling“) as Echo, just one member working for an illegal underground organization that implants employees with false memories and skills in order to perform various missions and dangerous tasks. These “dolls” can become anything that anyone desires; a lover, a fighter, an assassin, even a best friend. Once their assignment is complete, their memories are wiped clean and they are released back into the “Dollhouse” to cohabitate with their fellow colleagues under the watchful eye of those in charge. But Echo is slowly starting to become aware of herself and her surroundings…and one outsider will stop at nothing to bring the entire “Dollhouse” down.

“Dollhouse” Season One includes intense and stunning supporting performances from Olivia Williams (The Sixth Sense, Rushmore), Harry Lennix (State of Play, Across The Universe), Amy Acker (“Angel“), and Tahmoh Penikett (“Battlestar Galactica“). The Blu-ray and DVD includes all 12 original episodes and tons of bonus features including the never-before-seen standalone episode “Epitaph One,” the original unaired pilot “Echo,” deleted scenes and seven making-of featurettes. The Blu-ray will be available for a suggested retail price of $69.99 U.S. / $89.99 Canada and the DVD will be available for $49.98 U.S. / $69.98 Canada.

Series Synopsis:
From Joss Whedon, the creative mastermind behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, comes the provocative Dollhouse, a sexy, suspenseful thriller starring the stunningly talented Eliza Dushku. As an “Active,” the mysterious Echo (Dushku) serves as an unwitting agent of Dollhouse, an illegal underground organization that provides its elite clientele with programmable human beings. Actives receive personality imprints, allowing them to temporarily become anyone or anything-the perfect burglar, lover, spy, or assassin. Now, with the FBI and her own shadowy past closing in, Echo must face a rogue Active who will stop at nothing to bring Dollhouse down-forever.
