Sarah Michelle Gellar: 'The Ringer' Details Revealed!
The show’s producer Peter Traugott explained to EW that the show is about revenge.
“It’s an edgy thriller about redemption and about revenge. There’s a point of view of two twin sisters who grew apart over a tragedy in their past. 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. She’s living the life of her more successful sister only to come to find out that her life is equally as fraught with danger and complication. Her sister dies in a boating accident. The other sister takes on her persona, only to come to find out that they have a hit out on her.”
Sarah will play both Bridget, the sister who takes over Siobhan’s life, as well as Siobhan, the other sister. Siobhan will appear in the series via flashbacks a la the show Damages.
