"We Were Never Going to Be Desperate About It". In the upcoming return of Dollhouse to Sci Fi, Joss and Eliza talk about the origins of Dollhouse and the risks involved.

I wonder how long ago this was filmed. Is it recent?

Obviously if you're a Joss fan, the soundbite you want to take from this is "If people show up, we're glad. If they don't, we'll make the next thing we believe in."

I absolutely love Dollhouse to death, but it's over. It's nice to know that Joss isn't tired of creating. Bring on the next mind-bending thing!

I absolutely agree - that is exactly how I feel. I only hope that is true for the next TV exec who may be more concerned about the bottom line since I need more Joss on the box.
But you just know it's going to be several years. Bah. Time to start hibernating again.
All good things come to those who wait.
Joss told we'd know details of his next project by the time the last episode of Dollhouse airs. That's this month (obviously), so our wait won't be too long.
Surely Dr. Horrible 2 is on the horizon?
... and my bet on what his next project is = the Summer Glau dance piece. Joss and Summer are both available / between projects so it seems the perfect time to get this out.
There is the (very) off chance that Fox announce a new Joss show at the TCA winter press tour.
The TCA tour is going on right now, right?
How come the people most informed about what's happening in California live in the UK?! (Love you guys... but jealous!)
It doesn't start until 9.45AM PT. There's a 45 minute sesh at 12PM PT which may contain some Dollhouse thoughts from the execs.

Alright so much for my composure for the next few hours.
Well then, I'm only a little bit excited.
Very interested in the Dollhouse comments. I'm sure it'll be something like "Love the show, but it just wasn't pulling the numbers".

And if they announce Epitaph, taking place in the post apocalyptic future of Dollhouse starring Felicia Day, Zack Ward, Adair Tishler and others I'll be pretty ecstatic.

Yes, I know that's not going to happen.
I would imagine it will be something like:

Q) Do you regret bringing back Dollhouse?
A) No, it was worth a shot. It just didn't have the numbers we would like. We would love to work with Joss again [on something easily sellable PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD].
Q) Do you regret bringing back Dollhouse?

A) No, our work placement students got to do the PR.
Simon, I think that's unfair to the work placement students.

You know what would be super-cool? put the two together!
I can see it now...

Still fresh from his glorious entry into the Evil League of Evil, Dr. Horrible (Neil Patrick Harris) finds himself unable to enjoy the fruits of his foul deeds as he pines over the death of his true love Penny (Felicia Day.) In an effort to raise the poor (horrible) Doctor's spirits, his best friend Moist (Simon Helberg) coaxes him into spending a night on the town worthy of an ELE card-carrying supervillain. After sampling the many social pleasures reserved for the villainous elite and surviving the attentions of the infamous villainess night-club owner Marla, the One Who Speaks Through Interpretive Dance (Summer Glau ala Cyd Charisse) and her goons, Dr. Horrible forsakes the celebrity side of super-villainy and instead devotes himself to the totally-uncool-in-a-villainous-way zombie resurrection of his beloved Penny.
Will he succeed? Or will his arch-nemesis Captain Hammer inexplicably appear to foil his plans? Find out next...


...or something like that.


ETA: Forgot the goons. Also the night club sequence would culminate in an MGM style dance number.

Naughty liljemsey, making me think Dollhose got picked up by a new network. Now I's all sad and stuff. :: Snif! ::

BTW: Don't forget, brinderwalt, that the resurrected Penny would be a twisted, evil version called Bad Penny. Oh, and Marla's goons would be statuesque showgirls (which possibly means they'd be men) named Busby and Berkley.
So, no news then via the TCA Winter Press Tour? I looked but found nothing...

But of course. :)
But we wouldn't find that out until Dr. Horrible 3.
