Ringer is a mystery crime drama television series created by Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder.

Premise Edit

The show follows Bridget Kelly, a recovering drug addict and stripper in Wyoming. She is under the protection of FBI Agent Victor Machado, having agreed to testify against her employer, local crime boss Bodoway Macswi, whom she witnessed committing murder. Fearing that Macawi, who has already murdered several witnesses linking him to previous crimes, will also kill her, Bridget flees to New York to meet her estranged sister Siobhan.

Soon after Bridget's arrival in New York, Siobhan, who had kept her sister's existence secret from her family, appears to commit suicide by jumping into the ocean. Bridget then assumes Siobhan's identity and tries to fit in among Siobhan's wealthy social circle, including Siobhan's husband Andrew, stepdaughter Juliet, best friend Gemma, and Gemma's husband Henry, with whom Siobhan has been having an affair. The only one who knows that Bridget is passing as Siobhan is Bridget's Narcotics Anonymous sponsor Malcolm. Bridget's life becomes more complicated as she discovers that her sister was hiding secrets of her own and that someone is trying to kill Siobhan as well.

Why It Was Cancelled Edit

The series had a decline in ratings and viewership from the three-month hiatus over the holiday break.
