‘The Crazy Ones’ First Look: Sarah Michelle Gellar and Robin Williams On Set
CBS is going to have a tight window for new series this season given the 18 already renewed in the last few weeks. One of the pilots we hope to see more from is Sarah Michelle Gellar’s first post-‘Ringer’ series with Robin Williams, ‘The Crazy Ones,’ in production now. The premise certainly has us intrigued, but what does the first photo reveal?
‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘ herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar will soon return to TV alongside Robin Williams, at least if CBS can spare the room. Production has begun on the pair’s forthcoming pilot ‘The Crazy Ones,’ as revealed by Williams’ tweets of himself and Gellar filming on the set. The single-camera sitcom sees Gellar and the ‘Good Will Hunting’ Oscar-winner portraying a father-daughter advertising team, in a pilot written by David E. Kelley.
Gellar will play Sydney Roberts, daughter of Simon (Williams), described as pretty, intense, driven, organized and practical. Gellar’s Sydney is the creative director and soul of the Roberts and Roberts Advertising Agency, and wishes to emulate her father but often finds herself too busy having to parent him. Also starring in the series is James Wolk (‘Lone Star’) as copywriter Zach Cropper.
Kelley will also executive produce the pilot alongside Dean Lorey, Bill D’Elia, John Montgomery and Mark Teitelbaum, while Jason Winer (‘Modern Family‘) will direct.
