CBS orders pilot starring Sarah Michelle Gellar

Posted on

CBS picked up two drama pilots today, one of which could mark the long-awaited comeback of Sarah Michelle Gellar to primetime if picked up to series. Ringer is from writers Eric Carmelo and Nicole Snyder and 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. It stars Buffy the Vampire Slayer – er, Gellar.

The other pilot is an untitled drama from writer Susannah Grant (The Soloist). It focuses on an ultra-competitive surgeon whose life is changed forever when his ex-wife dies and begins teaching him about life from the hereafter.
