From Entertainment Weekly: It's been eight years since Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Sarah Michelle Gellar bid adieu to the show that made her an icon to focus on making movies. After giving birth to her daughter in 2009, she began looking for a TV project that could keep her in Los Angeles, where she makes her home with hsuband freddie Prinze Jr. "At the same time," says Gellar, 34, "I was up against this wall: What do you do after Buffy?" The answer isn't short on ambition. On Ringer, Gellar plays twin sisters: Bridget, an ex-stripper on the run from the Mob, and Siobhan, a high-society snoot with a resentful husband (loan Gruffudd), a possessive lover (Kristoffer Polaha), and many secrets. When Siobhan goes missing, Bridget tries to escape her troubles by taking over her sister's identity. Instead, both their lives become more complex. "It encompasses everything I want, professionally and personally," says Gellar, adding that she enjoys playing opposite herself quite a bit. "My costar? Always knows her lines, always hits her marks, and never gives me attitude. Genius! Every actor should try it." (The CW) Sept. 13, 2011.

January 13, 2011
NEW YORK – January 13, 2011 – Writers Jane Espenson and Drew Z. Greenberg are teaming to pen the script for Syfy’s pilot development project Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) from ITV Studios America. Syfy announced last May that it had acquired the rights to the classic British detective show for development as a potential one-hour series with Howard Braunstein of Jaffe/Braunstein Entertainment (The Memory Keepers Daughter/ Christmas in Canaan) on board as executive producer. Randall and Hopkirk is a co-production between Universal Cable Productions and ITV for Syfy. UCP will be the producing company.
Jane and Drew most recently collaborated on the Syfy original series Caprica, where Espenson served as executive producer and Greenberg as supervising producer. The pair also worked together on genre busting crossover television hit Buffy the Vampire Slayer where Espenson was a writer/producer and Greenberg a writer.
Espenson’s other writing and producing credits include Battlestar Galactica, Gilmore Girls and Dollhouse. Greenberg’s writing and producing credits include Warehouse 13 and Dexter.
Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) is based on the popular British detective series from the late 1960s in which Hopkirk (Kenneth Cope) was murdered while investigating a case. He returned as a ghost, visible only to his former partner, Randall (Mike Pratt), and assisted him in sleuthing from beyond the grave.
ITV Studios America, the U.S. based production entity of ITV plc in the U.K. is one of the largest international producers for the U.S. market and a major force in acquiring, developing and producing reality and scripted programming for US networks.
ITV Studios, Inc., is a world leader in television production and distribution, with international production centers in the UK, Germany, Australia, France, Spain, and Scandinavia as well as America and programs distributed to over 155 territories worldwide.
Universal Cable Productions creates quality content across multiple media platforms for USA, Syfy and other networks. A leader in innovative and critically acclaimed programming, UCP is the studio behind USA's Royal Pains, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Psych, In Plain Sight, Covert Affairs and Fairly Legal, as well as Syfy's Eureka, Warehouse 13 and Alphas . The studio also produced the long-running series Monk and Battlestar Galactica, as well as the series Caprica. UCP is a division of NBC Universal.
Syfy is a media destination for imagination-based entertainment. With year round acclaimed original series, events, blockbuster movies, classic science fiction and fantasy programming, a dynamic Web site (www.Syfy.com), and a portfolio of adjacent business (Syfy Ventures), Syfy is a passport to limitless possibilities. Originally launched in 1992 as SCI FI Channel, and currently in more than 98 million homes, Syfy is a network of NBC Universal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. (Syfy. Imagine greater.)

'Buffy' Alums Join ABC Pilots

Trachtenberg, Rocha sign on to comedies; Penn takes 'Call'

March 8, 2007

Former "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" regular Michelle Trachtenberg will try out her comedy chops at ABC.

The Alphabet has added the actress to its untitled Washington-set comedy, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Another "Buffy" veteran, Kali Rocha, has meanwhile signed onto ABC's "The Call," as has Kal Penn. The network has also added Adam Goldberg to its drama "Marlowe."

Trachtenberg will star opposite Eric Christian Olsen ("The Loop") in the D.C. comedy. She'll be playing the daughter of a lawmaker who falls in love with Olsen's character, who just happens to work for her dad's nemesis across the aisle.

Trachtenberg played Buffy's sister Dawn for three seasons on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." More recently she's starred in the movies "Black Christmas" and "Beautiful Ohio" and made guest appearances on "House" and "Law & Order: SVU."

In "The Call," a comedy about a group of L.A. paramedics, Penn will play a hypochondriac member of the team, while Rocha will play the group's boss. The show's cast also includes Jodi Lyn O'Keefe, John Francis Daley and Danny Comden.

Penn appeared on several episodes of "24" this season; that show's producers are also behind "The Call." Rocha, who had a recurring part as the demon Halfrek on "Buffy," currently plays chipper attending physician Sydney Heron on "Grey's Anatomy."

On the drama side, Goldberg will star opposite Jason O'Mara and Amanda Righetti in "Marlowe," a contemporary take on the Raymond Chandler private eye. He'll play an LAPD detective who occasionally helps Marlowe (O'Mara).

Goldberg is currently on the big screen in "Zodiac." His other credits include FOX's "Head Cases," "Deja Vu" and "Dazed & Confused."

HBO Asks Pollack for 'Recount'
'Buffy,' 'Gilmore' actor Strong wrote script

April 2, 2007

As the 2008 presidential campaign ramps up, HBO is looking back at the last time the United States replaced a two-term president.

The cable network has greenlit "Recount," which will dramatize the events surrounding the hotly contested Florida recount in the 2000 election. Oscar-winning director Sydney Pollack ("Out of Africa," "The Interpreter") has signed on to direct the film, which was written by "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Gilmore Girls" actor Danny Strong.

Casting hasn't begun yet, but HBO is aiming for a spring 2008 airdate, the showbiz trade papers report.

The script is the first by Strong, who currently plays Paris' (Liza Weil) boyfriend Doyle on "Gilmore Girls." He did extensive interviews with people involved in the recount before writing the script, which, both HBO Films chief Colin Callender and producer Paula Weinstein ("Blood Diamond," HBO's "Truman") say, plays things down the middle by focusing on the backstage drama of the recount.

"It's a fascinating look at democracy where the rubber meets the road -- a look at the election process like we've never seen it before," Callender tells The Hollywood Reporter.

Pollack won an Oscar for directing 1985's "Out of Africa," which also earned best picture that year, and was nominated for "Tootsie" a few years earlier. His other credits include "The Firm," "Three Days of the Condor" and the documentary "Sketches of Frank Gehry."
