TVLine Items: Details On Sarah Michelle Gellar's New Dual Role, and Other TV News to Know
Per EW.com, the upcoming thriller will star not one but two versions of SMG — can I get an Amen?! — as she’ll be portraying twin sisters. Don’t worry, this isn’t some superimposed, Adam and Stuart Chandler, shared-scene kinda thing.
“[Ringer is the] point of view of two twin sisters who grew apart over a tragedy in their past,” pilot producer Peter Traugott reveals. “And one now seeks redemption and the other one seeks revenge. The sister who is seeking redemption has had a much more troubled life. When her fancy pants sister disappears, she takes over her life.” Sounds promising!
