‘Buffy’ creator’s Faith in TV restored by ‘Tru’ star?

elizaangel.jpgJoss Whedon is heading back to television – and Fox, no less – even after the disaster that network made of his Firefly series a few years back (he describes it as a “massacre”).

The Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator is teaming up with Tru Calling star and Buffy nemesis/sidekick Eliza Dushku for a new series called Dollhouse.

Dushku will produce and star in the series, which is about a group of men and women who can be imprinted with different “personality packages” to suit specific missions.

Dushku’s Buffy character, the rogue Slayer called Faith, was one of the highlights of that show and its spinoff, Angel (pictured). Whedon is known for creating and supporting strong female lead characters (Dushku calls him “the ultimate feminist male writer”), and this show looks like it will uphold that legacy.
