Production stops for 'Dollhouse,' '24'

Scripts are playing a large role in the production schedule for two anticipated FOX shows, both of which are scheduled to return in January 2009.

Joss Whedon's "Dollhouse," which has garnered some headlines due to the swapping of its first episodes, has halted production for the next two weeks per the creator's request, according to The Hollywood Reporter. This is so that Whedon, who was apparently unhappy with the show's next scripts, could hunker down on the problem and resolve them without worrying about the blocking or lighting for the next scene. The first three episodes have already been shot. Production is set to resume Sept. 25.

Another midseason FOX drama, "24" has also taken the same route, per The Hollywood Reporter, to work on its scripts. Production will start up again after the next two and a half weeks.
