The CW to pick up Sarah Michelle Gellar's 'Ringer'

Deadline reports that Sarah Michelle Gellar's pilot "Ringer" will in fact be picked up for the fall. The series was originally developed by CBS, but in a surprising twist, it is now going to the network's sibling, The CW.

In the project, Gellar plays two characters, twins named Bridget and Siobhan. Bridget is on the run from the mob and inhabits her wealthy sister Siobhan's life after Siobhan's death. Turns out (as it so often does) that her twin sister also has a price on her head. Simple enough, right?

The series also stars "Life Unexpected's" Kris Polaha, Tara Summers and Ioan Gruffudd. Gellar serves as co-executive producer on the project, which was created by "Supernatural" scribes Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder.

It seems fitting that the show will move to The CW as it brings Gellar back to the network that replaced the two networks that originally aired "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" -- The WB and UPN.
