We first got excited about BAMF Girl’s Club when we saw the trailer back in July, depicting fictional heroines (and Bella) being awkward on the Comediva reality show. Episode one features Katniss, Bella, Hermione and zombie slayer Michonne, among others.
In this episode, the ladies move into their new home and drama starts right away when Lisbeth Sander attempts to make friends with Hermione. Unfortunately Lisbeth thinks “making friends” means researching all of Hermione’s sordid past actions and reciting them to her (will this come back to haunt the witch?).
Katniss Everdeen is a reality show pro and we’ll have to watch closely to see who she strategically chooses for her alliance (my bet is on Michonne and Buffy).
Then there’s Bella who pretty much gets upset by everything. Team Jacob will surely be shedding tears along with her at the end.
Watch it here:
“Buffy” fans have even more reasons to be excited for Joss Whedon’s return to television: he may be bringing back some more familiar faces.
For his new show, “Dollhouse,” creator Whedon has already cast “Buffy” alum Eliza Dushku as the lead. According to TV Guide, he’s considering some of the other Buffyverse actors to take some of the eight supporting roles.
At the Paley Festival on Thursday, Whedon admitted that “I’ve read a couple of people [from the Buffyverse], but I’m not going to say who.”
Originally however, Whedon said he thought it would be lazy to cast his “Buffy” pals. “It’s not a hard and fast rule,” he told TV Guide in the fall. “I just want to make sure I get the right people. And I don’t want to give the impression that it’s just me and my friends having a party. Some [Buffyverse alums] might work out fine. But I’m not going to just seek out people that I already know are great.
Buffyverse fans never lost their Faith, and now creator Joss Whedon has returned with a new show starring “Buffy” and ‘Angel’ co-star Eliza Dushku.
Entitled “Dollhouse,” it will be just as bizzarre and wonderfully creative as tales of the vampire slayer. This is what Fox has to say on the plot:
“Echo (Dushku) [is] a young woman who is literally everybody’s fantasy. She is one of a group of men and women who can be imprinted with personality packages, including memories, skills, language – even muscle memory – for different assignments. The assignments can be romantic, adventurous, outlandish, uplifting, sexual and/or very illegal. When not imprinted with a personality package, Echo and the others are basically mind-wiped, living like children in a futuristic dorm/lab dubbed the Dollhouse, with no memory of their assignments – or of much else. The show revolves around the childlike Echo’s burgeoning self-awareness, and her desire to know who she was before, a desire that begins to seep into her various imprinted personalities and puts her in danger both in the field and in the closely monitored confines of the Dollhouse.”
Seven episodes have already been ordered. With any luck, the show will take off, unlike Whedon’s previous offering, “Firefly.”
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER creator JOSS WHEDON has quit as writer and director of the forthcoming WONDER WOMAN movie over “creative differences.”
Whedon signed up to adapt the popular comic book and 1970s TV show for the big screen in May, but has severed ties with the project after failing to agree to a script with the film’s producers.
He writes on his website, “You (hopefully) heard it here first: I’m no longer slated to make Wonder Woman…I had a take on the film that, well, nobody liked.
“Let me stress first that everybody at the studio and Silver Pictures were cool and professional. We just saw different movies, and at the price range this kind of movie hangs in, that’s never gonna work. It happens all the time. I don’t think any of us expected it to this time, but it did.”
