Fox is developing what could be Sarah Michelle Gellar‘s next TV series.
The network has given a script commitment to “Other People’s Houses,” a project Gellar is attached to star in and executive produce, Variety reports. “Ringer” creators Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder are on board as writers, and they’ll serve as executive producers alongside Gellar, Neil Meron, and Mark Nicholson.
The project is a suburban dramedy based on Abbi Waxman’s novel of the same name. The book follows four families in the same neighborhood carpool and how an affair changes everything. The potential series is described as being “somewhere between ‘Big Little Lies’ and ‘Catastrophe,'” as it looks at nine people in Los Angeles’ Larchmont Village who are going through emotional ups and downs. Gellar’s character is Anne Porter, a social media influencer and mom.
Over the years, Gellar has had many memorable roles. She notably played the titular character in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and starred in films like “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” “Cruel Intentions,” and “The Grudge.” More recently, she starred in the shows “Ringer” and “The Crazy Ones.”
There are still more steps between now and “Other People’s Houses” getting a greenlight, but we’re interested to see where this project goes.
