It's been 8 years (!!!) since Buffy the Vampire Slayer wrapped and, since then, Sarah Michelle Gellar has commited full time to the big screen. Now the Scooby Doo star is ready for a comeback to TV as the star of a drama titled Ringer, for CBS.
According to Deadline, the premise of the pilot revolves around a young woman on the run from the mob. While on the run, she inhabits the life of her wealthy twin sister, until she learns that her twin’s life has a bounty on it as well.
Gellar has been heavily pursued by the broadcast networks since then end of the Buffy days, but her only TV work was a pilot for HBO called The Wonderful Maladys which was never picked up.
Personally, I would love to see Sarah return to TV (it`s been a really long time) but she deserves better than this. I would rather watch her star in the new Charlie's Angels for ABC as she needs a big budget show where she can kick some ass as well as showcase her comedic and dramatic skills.
What do you say? Does the premise of Ringer sound good to you? Are you happy to see Gellar return to TV?
