Sarah Michelle Gellar Pilot - CW has picked up the Sarah Michelle Gellar pilot entitled Ringer. It’s a thiller series that will make the 2011-2012 season. Fans can’t wait for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer star to make her return to television.
Granted, Gellar acolytes have been titillated by her possible return before with HBO’s The Wonderful Maladys, only to have the pilot never make it to series. But alas, the potential seems to be there with Ringer. Until now, the show has only been described as a drama about “a troubled young woman on the run who hides out by living the life of her wealthy twin sister, until she learns her sibling’s life has a bounty on it as well.”
The new series has been described as an edgy thriller about redemption and about revenge. There’s a point of view of two twin sisters who grew apart over a tragedy in their past. And one now seeks redemption and the other one seeks revenge.
The sister who is seeking redemption has had a much more troubled life. When her fancy pants sister disappears, she takes over her life. She’s living the life of her more successful sister only to come to find out that her life is equally as fraught with danger and complication.
Her sister dies in a boating accident. The other sister takes on her persona, only to come to find out that they have a hit out on her. It seems like a great series and Gellar is perfect for the part.
