    Yes I am really happy that Sarah Michelle Gellar will finally appear in something new. She's one of my favourite actresses so I will definitely tune in to watch this if it's picked up. Can't say I am as excited about the crime drama genre though as it seems to me like she is getting typecast in a particular type of role...
