Dollhouse Production Delayed

Production for Joss Whedon's DOLLHOUSE for FOX has been temporarily shut down, per VARIETY.

Twentieth Century Fox TV shut down the show Wednesday, but plans to resume shooting September 25, giving Whedon his requested time to tweak the show's fourth script. Whedon had been directing the first two episodes, keeping him out of the writer's room. As a consequence, the studio, network and Whedon agreed the show's fourth episode needed re-writing, also allowing the writers to get ahead on the next few scripts.

The show's premiere is in midseason, so the shutdown will not affect the schedule. Whedon has already shot a new series premiere, turning the pilot into the second episode.

Fox also recently temporarily shut down 24, another midseason entry for FOX, to do a similar round of script tweaks.
