Sarah Michelle Gellar Heads Back to TV
Sarah Michelle Gellar is set to appear in the ensemble drama The Wonderful Maladys for HBO. Written by Charles Rudolph, he said he had the Buffy actress in mind for the series which will be set in New York City.
The half-hour series would involve, according to Variety, about “dysfunctional lives of three adult siblings who lost their parents at a young age.”
Gellar and Randolph would both serve as executive producers and the writer described his leading lady’s character as having "a kind of zealous immaturity — like a drug addict with a to-do list."
"We’re on a fast track," Brillstein Entertainment Partners CEO Jon Liebman told the trade.
The return to television for Gellar is no doubt bittersweet considering her tepid film career since her signature series ended.
The writer’s credits include The Life of David Gale and The Interpreter.
