The young network has announced its pick-ups for the Fall 2011-12 season: “Ringer,” “The Secret Circle” and “Hart of Dixie.”
“Ringer” was originally developed by CBS who then passed it on to its sister network. “Ringer” has been garnering huge buzz as it marks “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” star Sarah Michelle Gellar’s return to television. The series stars Gellar as a woman on the run from the mob who inhabits the life of her twin sister. It turns out the sister is wanted as well. “Life Unexpected’s” Kris Polaha, “Fantastic Four’s” Ioann Gruffudd and “Lost’s” Nestor Carbonell co-star.
“The Secret Circle” comes from “The Vampire Diaries” executive producer Kevin Williamson and Andrew Miller. Based on a book series from “TVD” author L.J. Smith, the series centers on a young girl (“LUX’s” Britt Robertson) who discovers she is part of a coven of witches after moving to a new town. Guess what? She’s also the key to unlocking a centuries-old battle of good vs.evil. Normal teenager problems. Also starring in the series are Thoma Dekker, Phoebe Tonkin, Shelley Hennig and Gale Harold.
“Hart of Dixie” re-teams “The O.C.” creator Josh Schwartz with star Rachel Bilson. Bilson will play a young doctor who moves to a small Southern town full of eccentric people after she inherits a medical practice. “Friday Night Light’s” Scott Porter and Jaime King co-star.
