Sarah Michelle Gellar's pilot moves to The CW

The CWRingers, a pilot starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, has been picked up but not by CBS as it was originally intended but by The CW instead.

The hotly anticipated Ringers stars Gellar in a dual role; playing two twins. Gellar plays Bridget, a young woman on the run from The Mob who decides to pose as her wealthy twin Siobhan but discovers she has a bounty on her life as well. Ringers also stars Kristoffer Polaha, Ioan Gruffudd and Nestor Carbonell.

Ringers has been given the greenlight for the Autumn season but not on CBS. Instead new CW entertainment president Mark Pedowitz has picked up the series, reports TVLine. That’s because The CW is partly owned by CBS so the fellow network was able to acquire the series of its parent company.
