Fans of The OC and Buffy rejoice! Among the CW's fall lineup are two new shows starring former California girl Rachel Bilson and vampire killer Sarah Michelle Gellar.
In Ringer, Gellar stars as Bridget Cafferty, a recovering alcoholic with a troubled past. After witnessing a murder, she flees to New York from the killers who want her dead. There, she reunites with her estranged twin sister Siobhan, a wealthy Manhattanite who is married to the handsome Andrew Martin (Fantastic Four's Ioan Gruffudd). When Siobhan goes missing, Bridget decides to pose as her sister, stepping into her seemingly perfect life to avoid her own troubles. But it doesn't take long before Bridget realizes that Siobhan was hiding secrets and facing even more danger than Bridget could imagine. (Watch a preview above.)
Hart of Dixie stars Bilson as Dr. Zoe Hart, a Manhattan medical school graduate, whose career plans and love life fall apart. Zoe decides to accept an offer from Dr. Harley Wilkes to join his small practice in Bluebell, Ala. But once she arrives, Zoe discovers that Wilkes has died and left her half of his practice. Accustomed to the fast-pace of the city, Zoe is a fish out of water in this small southern town but she also begins to find a side of herself that she didn't know. Along the way she befriends the town's mayor, a bad boy neighbor and a handsome lawyer named George Tucker, who is engaged to a not-so-sweet southern belle named Lemon. (Watch a clip below.)
