She went from back stabbing as Kendall Hart on All My Children to slaying vampires on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and now Sarah Michelle Gellar is set to be a mommy blogger on Other People's Houses.
Currently in development at Fox, the series -- written and executive produced by Ringer creators Eric Charmelo and Nicol Snyder, and based on the book by Abbi Waxman -- is described as a "suburban dramedy, somewhere between Big Little Lies and Catastrophe," that follows nine people living in the quiet, well-off Larchmont Village neighborhood of Los Angeles. Through the lens of social media, the show's characters "navigate their way through emotional ups and downs, as they try to figure out their lives as partners, parents, friends, and neighbors."
The main characters of the drama, says Variety, are stay-at-home mother Frances Bloom and working mom/social media influencer Anne Porter, the latter of which will be played by Gellar.
"I'm so excited to finally tell everyone, that I am going to be re-teaming with Nicole Snyder and Eric Charmelo (and partnering with the incomparable @neilmeron ) on a new project @foxtv set in (no less) the world of social media," Gellar shares on Instagram. "Big things to come!!"

Gellar made her debut as AMC's Kendall in 1993 and immediately found success in the genre, winning the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress in 1995 -- the same year she left the soap opera. Her credits after daytime include Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Ringer, and The Crazy Ones.
