Dollhouse began filming yesterday in downtown LA, as the official "Future on Fox" blog reports:
Joss started directing Dollhouse this morning. While the cool-ass sets are housed on the Fox lot, today they are shooting in downtown Los Angeles.dollhousetvforum.com recently posted an exclusive interview with two of the Dollhouse staff writers Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain. The spoiler-free interview is an excellent behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming series.
Is the plan to lean towards "adventure of the week" or with a more "arc" approach?Read the full interview.
The show will be episodic and serialized-- meaning every week we'll be telling a story with a beginning, middle, and end, but every week we'll also be weaving in the serialized elements of the Big Story. Sometimes that'll be in smaller, subtle ways, other times those elements will be front and center.
It's interesting you bring up the whole 7 episode thing. We're all so into the show that we're not thinking about 7 as a possible stopping point (although it is gonna be a pretty damn cool ep, as only those Minear episodes can be). We're just rolling right along. Jed and Maurissa are breaking episode 8 as we write these words. We're not stopping, dammit! We're going for 100! More!
When will we start seeing things like promo shoots, an official website, TV/Web advertisements e.t.c?
Joss starts shooting the pilot on April 23rd, and there's a promo shoot coming up a few days later, so there should be stuff to see in the not-too-distant future. We're all working with 20th and Fox on the web presence of the show now. Exactly what that's going to look like we can't say-- because we don't yet know-- but summer is probably a safe bet. Everyone's trying to get things rolling sooner rather than later.
