So, yeah, it's a pretty big deal that Gellar, 42, will be returning to TV next year in not one, but two new shows. PureWow sat down with the actress on behalf of her partnership with Colgate Optic White (and yes, we can confirm that she has a gorgeous set of chompers, even those vampires would be jealous...) to chat about her upcoming projects.
Both shows are based on novels and currently in pre-production. Her first show, Other People's Houses, is set to air on Fox and is based on the Abbi Waxman book about a group of affluent moms in L.A. who discover a juicy secret (veryyy Big Little Lies meets Desperate Housewives).
"I was fascinated by the idea that, through social media, is how we live our lives these days," said Gellar, whose character, Anne Porter, is a mommy blogger in the novel. "We make all of our assumptions about how people are thinking, feeling and how we validate ourselves through the lens of social media. But no one's using that as a storytelling device. Why not?"
"That's sorta the lens we're going to take with the view of these women and their stories," Gellar said, although she refused to "give any clues" about her character, which she said will deviate from the book quite a bit.
