Pilot Scoop: Sarah Michelle Gellar to Star in CBS' David E. Kelley Comedy Crazy Ones
Crazy Ones is bringing in a ringer.
Sarah Michelle Gellar has joined David E. Kelley’s CBS comedy pilot, TVline has learned.
Crazy Ones, from David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal), is a father/daughter workplace comedy set in the world of advertising. Mork & Mindy alum Robin Williams will play Gellar’s character’s dad, and Political Animals‘ James Wolk has signed on as an office hottie (and potential love interest?).
Jason Winer (Modern Family) will direct the pilot.
If the project goes to series, it will be Gellar’s first since The CW cancelled her drama Ringer last year. The actress is, of course, known best for wielding a stake as Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer for seven seasons.Follow @kimroots
