Dollhouse Reaps What It Sows

News of a change of creative direction for Dollhouse, as Reaper creators Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters join the series:

“Fazekas and Butters are in D-house and they’re awesome.” I checked with 20th Century Fox and confirmed that Tancharoen was not just hinting that the duo had stopped by for a scone at the Dollhouse writing office, and that they have indeed joined the series.

Fazekas and Butters recently signed an exclusive deal with 20th Century Fox – the same studio that produces Dollhouse. While that deal involves developing new projects, it’s not unusual for writer/producers to first take a job at a pre-existing series when they sign new deals of this sort. Similarly, Bryan Fuller returned to Heroes when he signed his recent deal with NBC Universal, though he also will be working on new projects too.

I discovered that Fazekas and Butters have taken the slots vacated by Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain. Craft and Fain, another writing duo, left Dollhouse at the end of Season 1 to join Lie to Me, where they will be reunited with new showrunner Shawn Ryan, creator of The Shield. Craft and Fain worked on The Shield after their stint on Whedon’s Angel.

I’m not sure what to think of this. It might be a good thing. I guess we’ll find out in the fall.

Yeah, I think it’s a wait and see on this one. I’m interested to see what they bring to the table – some new perspectives and creative energy might help.
