Twentieth Century Fox TV and Fox have sealed a talent deal with “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” alum Eliza Dushku to star in a new project for the studio and network.
Dushku last toplined Fox’s “Tru Calling,” which was produced by 20th. Both sides remain enamored of the actress, who most recently starred in the Fox pilot “Nurses” (also from 20th).
The studio is now starting to integrate Dushku in the development process, giving her a chance to familiarize herself with some of the writers who have deals at 20th.
Both Fox and 20th said they were impressed by Dushku’s versatility, given the thesp’s experience in comedy (the feature Bring It On), action and drama.
