Sarah Michelle Gellar in CBS Pilot ‘Ringer’

Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Sarah Michelle Gellar may be making her way back to TV. CBS has ordered a pilot for a new show starring Gellar called Ringer. The show is 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.

Based on that description, it sounds kind of boring. Not to mention I can’t see how long that story line can play out. Some more details were revealed to EW about what the show is exactly.

“It’s a thriller, for sure,” Producer Peter Traugott explains. “It’s 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.”

Yeah, still sounds pretty bad. SMG will also be playing both sisters. Yeah, that makes it sound even worse. Sorry, but this one will stay off my watch radar.
