Sarah Michelle Gellar got her roots on television, playing Buffy the Vampire Slayer for years. And now she’s heading back to small screen with a new role. But rather than kicking butt and taking names, she’ll be playing a normal young woman in the show The Wonderful Maladys.
This is no campy WB show either. It’ll be on HBO, which is so exciting, because after the finales of both Sopranos and Six Feet Under, we’ve been dying for a new series! And this one sounds pretty promising.
The show centers around three adult siblings who lead rather dysfunctional lives after their parents die when they’re very young. Not exactly uplifting material, but that’s what HBO is known for!
Nate Corddry, who currently is in United States of Tara, and Molly Parker from the HBO show Deadwood have also been cast. The show is in pre-production, and will reportedly air next Fall.
