Buffy The Vampire Slayer alumna Sarah Michelle Gellar has been tapped as the female lead opposite Robin Williams in David E. Kelley’s comedy pilot Crazy Ones. Written by Kelley and directed by Jason Winer, Crazy Ones is set in the world of advertising and stars Williams as a brilliant ad executive working alongside his daughter. 20th Century TV is producing.
Gellar was recently attached to a 20th TV comedy spec which didn’t land and I hear that the studio wanted to stay in business with her after the spec didn’t go. She’s repped by ICM Partners and Brillstein Entertainment.
