Sarah Michelle Gellar Books CBS Pilot RINGER

Sarah Michelle Gellar

Sarah Michelle Gellar is giving television another shot. Deadline reports the former Buffy the Vampire Slayer star will topline the CBS drama pilot RINGER.

In Ringer, which is CBS’ first greenlighted pilot for the 2011-12 season, Gellar will play a troubled young woman running from the mob who assumes her twin sister’s identity. Unfortunately, that twin sister also has a bounty on her head.

Supernatural writer-producers Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder are the show creators and they wrote the pilot script. Brillstein’s Peter Traugott will executive produce, while Gellar, Charmelo and Snyder will be co-executive producers.

We’ve seen much too little of Gellar since Buffy ended its run in 2003 and her career seemingly stalled after roles in horror remake The Grudge, the Scooby Doo movies and a string of mostly forgettable movies.

Buffy/SMG fans-what do you think of this project? Would you watch?
