Entertainment Weekly has just released the promo art and three pictures for The CW’s new show Ringer staring Sarah Michelle Gellar and she looks absolutely stunning.Â The show will also star Ioan Gruffudd: Mr Fantastic himself from the Fantastic Four films.
Here is the synopsis from the CW website:
‘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 â€“ 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 â€“ 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.’
Wow talk about a tangled web! Sounds a bit Mills and Boon but we’ll wait and see if they can pull it off. The show is the latest creation from Eric C. Charmelo and Nicole Snyder who worked together writing episodes of Supernatural and Love You to Death so all signs seem like they’re pointing to a hit.
Plus take a look at the first released pictures below. The film will premiere in the US on the 13th of September. Hopefully it will hit Australian shores not long after that!
