“The Crazy Ones” marks Robin Williams’ return to series TV, his first regular gig since “Mork & Mindy” in the late 1970s. The new CBS series also marks Sarah Michelle Gellar’s first half-hour TV comedy. The two are joined by co-stars James Wolk, Hamish Linklater, Amanda Setton and Kelly Clarkson appears in the pilot episode.
“The girl can act,” Gellar said of Clarkson on CBS’s Upfront 2013 red carpet.
“The group of people we have on this show is pretty wild … They can go one-on-one so it’s not like all you riffing. There’s a lot of people doing great stuff backing it up. The writing is really great,” Williams said.
In the series from David E. Kelley (“Chicago Hope,” “The Practice” & “Ally McBeal”), Williams plays ad executive Simon Roberts, who’s known for his unique way of thinking. Gellar plays his daughter, Sydney, a fellow executive at the firm.
What drew you to “The Crazy Ones” as your return to TV?
Robin Williams: Initially the script, and then all the people. Working with the people has been amazing.
Sarah Michelle Gellar: I get to be on television with Robin freaking Williams. I mean, hello! I didn’t need anything else. And they pay me too, which is great.
Williams: Yeah, and the checks will clear because it’s CBS.
Gellar: Yes, exactly!
Sarah, had you been looking for a comedy?
Gellar: Ultimately that is what I wanted to do. To me, some of the greatest parts of “Buffy” were the funny moments. You get to a point where it’s like, “You know what? I’ve cried a lot. I’m ready to be funny.”
Why are Sydney and Simon “The Crazy Ones”?
Williams: Literally, it’s based on an Apple ad [from] years ago, the one that said, “Here’s to the crazy ones.” They didn’t even have a product. They were just selling the idea of innovation and that’s kind of the idea [of the show]. I’m kind of [playing] the idea guy. He’s been on everything but skates. He’s kind of crazy. When I watched a documentary about [ad] guys — a lot of them, they live on the edge. All their ideas are outside the envelope, but at the same time, they get the simplest, purest image you can and go primal and in many cases, can go right for our consciousness. So that’s what they’re doing. [Gellar's] character is basically there to draw the line [while] I’ll cross the line.
Sarah, are you the straight man in this dynamic duo?
Williams: Not at all.
Gellar: Hey, you know what? I would be the straight man to him any day. And I would be honored.
Williams: That’s a loaded question.
Gellar: Yeah, sorry, I didn’t get –
Williams: No, no. It’s too late.
Gellar: Too far?
Williams: It’s too late. That’s the next movie.
Gellar: Just don’t tell my husband, OK?
Robin, I loved your Kim Kardashian tweet.
Williams: Thank you! It was literally a response. A friend sent this picture and I said I did [think Mrs. Doubtfire wore it better].
Gellar: I say Robin.
Williams: It’s really interesting to wear a couch. When I saw that floral pattern I said, “WOW!” [In "Mrs. Doubtfire" voice] Oh dear, I would know.
Gellar: Was it scotch-guarded too?
Williams: No. Oh God, it was scary. The number of tweets that hit after that and it was just me responding.
Did you like that it was single camera?
Williams: I love that it’s a single camera.
Gellar: Well, there’s a single camera, which is the Robin camera.
Williams: I have my own.
Gellar: Then there’s the camera getting everyone else.
Williams: At home too. It’s this weird thing — it’s mounted right here. [Motions to chest.] What is this? Me? The me network?
Gellar: I would watch it, by the way.
Williams: It’d be way beyond an upfront.

The Crazy Ones will be airing every Thursday at 9 pm on CBS.
Academy Award winner Robin Williams returns to series television in THE CRAZY ONES, a single-camera workplace comedy about a larger-than-life advertising genius whose unorthodox methods and unpredictable behavior would get him fired… if he weren’t the boss. Simon Roberts (Williams) is the head of a powerful agency, with the biggest clients and brands in the world, but even more important to him is that his daughter Sydney (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is by his side. As his partner, Sydney is Simon’s exact opposite – focused, organized and eager to make a name for herself, but also too busy parenting her father, which she’d resent if he wasn’t so brilliant at what he does. Joining them in the firm are the dashing and talented Zach (James Wolk); art director Andrew (Hamish Linklater), who’s as hard-working as he is neurotic; and the beautiful and deceptively smart assistant Lauren (Amanda Setton). With his team and his daughter behind him, Simon continues to set the advertising world on fire, and it looks like they are definitely buying what these crazy ones are selling. Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner David E. Kelley (“Ally McBeal” and “The Practice”), Bill D’Elia, Emmy Award winner Jason Winer (“Modern Family”), Dean Lorey, John Montgomery and Mark Teitelbaum are executive producers for Twentieth Century Fox Television. Jason Winer directed the pilot.

Do CBS executives want another Chuck Lorre sitcom on their schedule next season?
Of course they do!
The network has given Lorre’s Mom pilot a series order, along with three other shows. Mom follows a newly sober single mom (Anna Faris) tries to pull her life together in Napa Valley with help from her mom (Allison Janney).
Given that Lorre produces CBS hits Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men and Mike & Molly, his new project getting an order was considered one of the safest pilot season bets (along with ABC’s TV-sized Avengers-verse show from Joss Whedon, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.).
CBS also picked up:
– The Millers, starring Will Arnett, about a divorced guy whose life gets more complicated when his parents have marital problems.
– Crazy Ones, starring Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar in a father daughter workplace comedy set in the world of advertising.
– We Are Men, about a young guy finds camaraderie living among the more experienced guys he meets in a short-term rental complex. This one stars Chris Smith, Kal Penn, Tony Shalhoub and Jerry O’Connell.

Ready for some EXTREMELY exciting news, fellow Sarah Michelle Gellar fans?? According to various online sources, Sarah has just been cast to star as the female lead in a new CBS comedy pilot, called Crazy ones! I have attached an article from Deadline.com below, and you can also browse through a bunch of other articles on the new project here. We here at Sassy would like to congratulate Sarah on the new lead role! Let’s all cross our fingers and hope that the series will be picked up – we sure miss having her on our TV screens…
Buffy The Vampire Slayer alumna Sarah Michelle Gellar has been tapped as the female lead opposite Robin Williams in David E. Kelley’s CBS comedy pilot Crazy Ones. Written/exec produced by Kelley and directed/exec produced by Jason Winer, Crazy Ones is set in the world of advertising and stars Williams as Simon (Williams), the brilliant head of an ad agency working alongside his daughter Sydney (Gellar), the agency’s creative director. 20th Century TV is producing.
Gellar was recently attached to a 20th TV comedy spec, and I hear that the studio wanted to stay in business with her after that spec didn’t go. This marks the first live-action comedy series gig for Gellar, who starred in the CW drama Ringer last season. She is repped by ICM Partners and Brillstein Entertainment.
