First Look At CW’s ‘Ringer’ Starring Sarah Michelle Gellar

Sarah Michelle Gellar has found her way back to the little screen. She’ll star in CW’s Ringer which will premiere this fall at 9pm on Tuesday nights after 90210. Off the bat, it seems like an interesting time slot for this show. It doesn’t exactly seem like the right audience for a series like this, but that being said must of the other mystery/action shows already have perfect partners. Ideally, we would have matched this one up with Nikita.

Regardless of the lead-in show, we’re excited to see Gellar returning to television! We have a sneak peek look at the new series below! Be sure to sound off with your thoughts at the bottom of the page – we want to know what you think about Ringer!

Official Description:
Sarah Michelle Gellar stars as a woman who, after witnessing a murder, goes on the run, hiding out by assuming the life of her wealthy identical twin sister – only to learn that her sister’s seemingly idyllic life is just as complicated and dangerous as the one she’s trying to leave behind. Bridget is six months sober and starting to turn her life around when she is the sole witness to a professional hit. Despite the assurances of her FBI protector, Agent Victor Machado, Bridget knows her life is on the line. She flees to New York, telling no one, not even her Narcotics Anonymous sponsor, Malcolm. In New York, Bridget reunites with her estranged twin, Siobhan. Wealthy, pampered and married to the strikingly handsome Andrew Martin, Siobhan lives what appears to be a fairy tale life – a life where no one knows that Bridget exists. The sisters seem to be mending their frayed relationship, until Siobhan disappears overboard during a boat trip, and Bridget makes the split decision to take on her sister’s identity. She discovers shocking secrets, not only about her sister and her marriage, but also about Siobhan’s best friend, Gemma, and Gemma’s husband, Henry. And when someone tries to kill Bridget in her sister’s penthouse, she realizes she is no safer as Siobhan than she is as herself.

The series stars Sarah Michelle Gellar as Bridget and Siobhan, Kristoffer Polaha as Henry, Ioan Gruffudd as Andrew Martin, Nestor Carbonell as Agent Victor Machado and Tara Summers as Gemma.

RINGER is produced by CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Television in association with ABC Television Studios and Brillstein Entertainment with executive producers Pam Veasey (“CSI, NY,” “The District”), Peter Traugott (“Samantha Who?”) and Emmy Award-winner Richard Shepard (“Ugly Betty”). The pilot was directed by Richard Shepard.

  1. I’m disappointed that CBS passed on their own show. I hope it makes it on The CW given when its on and who its paired with. This is the one Fall show that grabbed my attention right off the bat.

  2. I honestly think Tuesday night is a horrible mistake for this – even if it is a good show. A lead in from 90210 doesn’t work for this. I understand you want to pair new shows with older shows so it’s not a completely new night – but this isn’t going to be the same fanbase as 90210. I firmly believe it should be paired with Nikita.

  3. It is a bad mistake, but probably better then putting it on Friday. I’m happy CW picked it up since CBS passed. But if CW couldn’t put it on a good night and with a good partner, maybe they should have passed to. I feel like its setup for failure before it even starts. Part of me thinks why waste everyones time then? In any case I will be watching and hope everyone from Buffy-verse does as well. 🙂

  4. Yeah… I mean I guess there’s just not enough room – I don’t think Nikita should be on Friday either. I think Nikita would be much better paired with this than Supernatural. That being said 90210 and Supernatural wouldn’t be a good match either. haha 🙂
