HBO Lures Sarah Michelle Gellar Back to TV

How do you get Sarah Michelle Gellar back on TV? Apparently, you write an intriguing script for HBO — with her in mind from the start.

That's how writer Charles Randolph wooed Gellar to HBO for a pilot called The Wonderful Maladys. The half-hour show centers on three siblings living in New York who lost their parents at a young age. Gellar's character is described as having "a kind of zealous immaturity — like a drug addict with a to-do list."

Randolph also wrote The Interpreter and The Life of David Gale, and Gellar called the chance to work with him and HBO "a terrific next chapter for me." HBO is looking to shoot the pilot early next year, and if the show goes forward, Gellar would also be an executive producer.

Are you ready to see Gellar back on TV? Is this the kind of role you pictured for her?

She was made for TV. I don't know what to expect from this show other than YET another program obsessed with New York City...a lovely place true, but an also-overly done place! However I'll give any series with her a shot. AMC was great with her Buffy is simply a remarkable part of my entertainment life 2 for 2 deserves a 3

I agree! It's about time she gets back on TV. Her recent movies haven't really been up to par... I still miss BtVS, so it's definitely great to see her again!

We need the TV SMG back! Her film career sucks. Buffy was where it was at! Plus, it's HBO!

when i heard about the project i was actually a little intrigued. i actually like SMG and i can't wait to see what she can bring to this project. it's always flattering to have a show written with you in mind - so i'm sure that she's going to go into this full speed ahead..

I love that picture of her! I wish my self-done french braids looked that cute. Good for her on this show, seems like ages since she was on tv, she seems nice and normal, I like that.

This is very exciting news. I love Smidge but her movie career has been less than stellar. Maybe she'll have better luck on TV.
