Sarah Michelle Gellar Drama 'The Ringer' Heading to The CW

Sarah Michelle GellarSarah Michelle Gellar's return to TV won't be on CBS after all -- looks like 'The Ringer' is heading to The CW.

According to Deadline, The CW, which is a sister network to CBS, has picked up 'The Ringer' after CBS passed.

The series stars 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' veteran Gellar as a set of twins, Bridget and Siobhan, who grew apart after a tragedy and couldn't be more different. Bridget, who has had a troubled life, takes over her sisters identity when she goes on the run from the mob. It turns out Siobhan has died in an accident, but she also has a hit out on her.

Gellar is joined by 'Life Unexpected' star Kristoffer Polaha and 'Fantastic Four' actor Ioan Gruffudd.

The series was on track to join CBS's lineup of new fall shows, but in an unexpected twist has landed on The CW. Deadline attributes the move to new CW boss Mark Pedowitz.

'The Ringer' marks Gellar's first regular TV gig since 'Buffy' wrapped, and this is a homecoming of sorts for Gellar. (Viewers will remember The CW was formed after UPN and The WB merged, and 'Buffy' aired on both networks.)

'The Ringer' was written by 'Supernatural' veterans Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder.

Somehow,it makes sense to have SMG comeback to the network that made her a star.
CBS would never have given this show a chance, anyway.
Looking forward to seeing you again,Sarah.
You've never let us down before.
If you could possibly get JLH to guest star sometime,even better.

i really wanted Sarah to have a drama on a major network but then if CBS passed on it then it wouldn't have lasted long even if it had been greenlit.

Bummer. I was interested in this, but since The CW canceled Reaper I'm still boycotting them. It has to be one hell of a pilot in order for me to consider backing off my boycott.
