Even though her fun-loving housewife pilot for 20th Century Fox was nixed, Deadline reports that the studio wanted to keep Sarah Michelle Gellar around. They've cast her as Robin Williams's daughter in a new CBS comedy pilot called Crazy Ones. All we know about the show so far is that it's written and produced by Ally McBeal creator David E. Kelley and focuses on the ad industry. So, Buffy meets Mork & Mindy meets Mad Men until further notice.
