The CW begins its 2011-2012 with CBS Pilot "Ringer"
Deadline is reporting that the pilot Ringer, starring Sarah Michelle Geller, has been picked up to series. The crazy thing is that the network picking it up isn't CBS (which developed it), it's the CW. This is a very interesting move because the pilot was developed at CBS. What probably happened was CBS didn't think it was the right fit for them, so they passed on it, and the CW jumped immediately to pick up the pilot. This should be a great fit for the new network, which is looking to get out of the ratings toilet.
What does everyone else think of this? Excited to see Buffy back on your TVs?
Update: The CW has also picked up the witch drama Secret Circle and the medical drama Hart of Dixie. They also picked up the unscripted series H8R
