The CW has rolled out the official description for the Ringer pilot, airing September 13. Check it out below the jump.
NOTHING IS WHAT IT APPEARS TO BE — Bridget Kelly (Sarah Michelle Gellar, “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”) is six-months sober and starting to turn her life around when she is the sole witness in a murder trial. Despite the assurances of her FBI protector, Agent Victor Machado (Nestor Carbonell,”Lost”), Bridget knows her life is on the line. She flees to New York, telling no one, and reunites with her estranged twin, Siobhan Martin (Sarah Michelle Gellar). Wealthy, pampered and married to the strikingly handsome Andrew Martin (Ioan Gruffudd “Fantastic Four”), Siobhan lives what appears to be a fairy tale life – a life where no one knows that Bridget exists. The sisters seem to be mending their frayed relationship – until Siobhan disappears mysteriously, and Bridget makes the split decision to take on her sister’s identity. She discovers shocking secrets, not only about her sister and her marriage, but also about Siobhan’s best friend, Gemma Butler (Tara Summers, “Boston Legal”) and Gemma’s husband, Henry (Kristoffer Polaha “Life Unexpected”). Mike Colter (“The Good Wife”) and Zoey Deutch (“The Suite Life on Deck”) also star. Richard Shepard directed the episode written by Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder.
