That’s the news: he’s got a contract for a series, according to TV Week. Here’s the pitch:

“Dollhouse” stars Dushku as Echo, one of a group of secret agents living in a futuristic dorm. Each has the ability to be imprinted with custom personalities and abilities for special assignments. When they return, their newly acquired memories are wiped. The show follows Echo as she takes on a variety of assignments—some romantic, some adventurous, some uplifting, some illegal—and gains awareness of her role and confinement.

I don’t know, it all sounds very Aeon Flux. But I never see much in Whedon’s pitches — I was convinced Buffy would flop. It’s all in the execution. Which in his case tends to be brilliant.
