Sarah Michelle Gellar to return to television with a dramedy
Los Angeles: Sarah Michelle Gellar is making a comeback to television with Fox dramedy 'Other People's Houses'.
According to Deadline, the actor will star in and executive produce the show, which is based on a novel by Abbi Waxman.
The project will also reunite Gellar with "Ringer" creators Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder, who are adapting the book.
It is described as a suburban dramedy, "somewhere between 'Big Little Lies' and 'Catastrophe'."
The story focuses on nine people who live in Los Angeles' Larchmont Village neighbourhood. Through the lens of social media, the characters navigate the emotional ups and downs of being parents, partners, neighbours and friends.
If the project gets a series order, it would be Gellar's first regular TV role since the 2013 CBS comedy 'The Crazy Ones'. The project is a co-production between Universal TV and Fox Entertainment.
