Dollhouse Fast-tracked Thanks to Writers Strike

Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse gets another mention in the LA Times, as they analyse the new shape of television in the wake of the writers strike:

Great pilots do not, alas, invariably lead to great series. But pilots have been like internal-combustion engines or barrel-loaded muskets — the best bad idea until a better idea came along.

Not this year. Three NBC series — the comedy “Kath & Kim” and the dramas “My Own Worst Enemy” and “The Philanthropist” — were ordered straight to series with no pilot. Writer-producer Joss Whedon of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” fame bypassed the pilot process in winning a midseason 13-episode order from Fox for “Dollhouse,” his latest sci-fi drama.
