Earlier this week, we brought you the news that 24 had ceased production temporarily to tweak its direction and refine the production of the show.
Now, according to Variety, 20th Century Fox TV have temporarily shut down production on Joss Whedon’s upcoming series Dollhouse with shooting set to resume on Sept. 25.
Supposedly, Whedon’s involvement in directing the opening episodes of the series had kept him out of the writers’ room, and afterwards the studio, network and Whedon himself agreed that the next script (the fourth episode) needed adjustment.

Whedon is also said to have requested this delay to get ahead on the show’s next few scripts.
As with 24, since the air date of the show (early 2009) is so far away, these shutdowns are unlikely to affect either show’s schedule.
Coincidentally, this isn’t the first production upheaval carried out on Dollhouse. Earlier this year, Joss Whedon decided to a new pilot, turning the previous script into the series’ second episode.
