Sarah Michelle Gellar set to star in CBS pilot, 'Ringer'

buffy-finale.jpgJust as god rested after creating the world, Sarah Michelle Gellar has been taking it relatively easy on the TV-front since the 2003 end of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer."

But that may soon change.

Vulture reports that CBS has given a pilot order for "Ringer," a thriller with the 33-year-old actress set to star.

The series follows a young woman on the run from the mob, who tries to lay low by pretending to be her wealthy twin sister -- only to realize that she too has a price on her head. A little convoluted? Yes. But does it really matter when you're talking about a series that would star two Sarah Michelle Gellars? Not in the least.

Gellar serves as co-executive producer on the project, which was created by "Supernatural" scribes Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder.

Though she's mostly focused on film work -- and motherhood -- since departing the tube almost eight years ago, Gellar did star in an unsuccessful pilot for HBO in 2008, "The Wonderful Maladys."
