In RINGER, the new CBS series in which Sarah Michelle Gellar will star as twin sisters, Twin #1, Bridget Cafferty, is a recovering addict about to testify in court against a murderer. The morning of the trial, she slips away and goes on the run from the FBI. With no where else to go, she reaches out to her estranged rich sister, Siobhan (Twin #2 pronounced shah-vahn) who has an Upper West Side apartment and an attractive husband named Andrew.
Soon after Bridget contacts her sister, Siobhan dies, an apparent suicide.
Siobhan’s best friend is Gemma, an architect with a bad marriage. Gemma is married to Henry, who is an alcoholic novelist who has been having an affair with Siobhan. Interestingly, Gemma has a pair of twins of her own.
Bridget’s pursuer is FBI Agent Victor Machado. Bridget will try to stay ahead of Machado and stay sober but her AA sponsor, who is a black community college professor named Malcom Howard, is in Wyoming. There is a hint that there may be something more to that relationship too.
