Gellar joins Robin Williams...
The Hollywood Reporter says that Sarah Michelle Gellar has joined the cast of the new workplace comedy pilot Crazy Ones by David E. Kelley. Gellar will portray the daughter of Robin Williams' character.
The pilot is being produced by CBS. The show is described as a "single-camera entry revolves around the dynamics between a father named Simon Roberts (Good Will Hunting Oscar winner Robin Williams) and his daughter and is set in the world of advertising."
Gellar's character is Sydney Roberts. Sydney is described as "intense, driven, organized and burdened with being practical. Sydney is the creative director and life and soul of the Roberts and Roberts Advertising Agency at the center of the comedy. She wants to be her father but is too busy having to parent him."
Kelley wrote the pilot for the show and will serve as executive producer alongside Dean Lorey, Bill D'Elia, John Montgomery, and Mark Teitelbaum. Jason Winer will direct the pilot.
