Buffy may be headed back to her old stomping grounds: The CW (formerly the Warner Bros.-owned WB before it merged with CBS Corp’s UPN) is working on a deal to bring Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar to the fifth place network via Ringer, the drama pilot she made for CBS.

CBS passed on the project — rumor has it the networked loved Gellar but only liked the project — so its sister net is now kicking the Ringer tires. The drama is about a troubled young woman (Gellar) 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.

Gellar starred in Buffy from 1997-2003. The show ran on the WB before it jumped to UPN.
