LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - A second midseason Fox series, producer Joss Whedon’s new drama “Dollhouse,” has shut down production for a couple of weeks to work on scripts.
Filming on “Dollhouse” stopped Thursday after wrapping episode three. It came at the request of Whedon, who had had spent little time in the writers room lately, busy directing the first two episodes of the series. Not completely happy with the quality of upcoming scripts, he asked producing studio 20th TV for a timeout.
Production on the midseason sci-fi drama starring Eliza Dushku is slated to resume September 25.
Production on another Fox/20th TV midseason drama series, “24,” will be suspended next week for 18 days to do extra work on scripts.
