Dollhouse to be screened at MIPCOM this October. If you're really desperate to see Joss' new show, you'll need to make your way over to Cannes, France and pay around &euro 1300 to become a "participant" at the industry event.

Obviously it would help if you had industry connections.

Anyhow the relevant Wikipedia blurb about MIPCOM can be found here.

In Cannes, really ? I live like 500kms from Cannes, but I could never afford to go there, even less to become a 'participant'.

But does it mean we will have a preair pilot available before january ?
Well...this sounds awesome, but it's on another flippin' continent, so I can't go.
The screening lasts 45 minutes for each show. Shouldn't that mean that the Dollhouse episode is a little truncated?
Maybe Fox has quietly dropped the "longer episode, less ads" approach.
Hmm...hopefully it leaks afterwards. *being ashamed of myself, but hell waiting until January is so hard*
Cannes... well, for once, that's even relatively close. Now I just need to get an extra 1300 euro's. Hmmm. ;)

My guess is rather than putting exact times, they used 45 and 30 minutes as general run times for each show. Do Not Disturb, for example, is given a 30 minutes show time even though the episode will probably be around 21-23 minutes. Life on Mars should run 42-43 minutes rather than 45, etc. I wouldn't read into it too much.

Actually, that's a bit longer in run time with "hour long" episodes today. From what I'm seeing, they're averaging about 41-to-42 minutes. Got to love those commercials!

Yeah, I remember reading that one as well. Kinda' doubt we'll see it though. And, really, this doesn't make any difference to me as long as they give Joss a solid seven episode shot with "Dollhouse".

After "Firefly", they owe it to him.
The media buying agencies I work with are still talking about FOX's plan for fewer spots as they forecast '09 ad pricing, which makes me think dollrific is probably right.
