The project in question is titled Sometimes I Lie and will be based on the novel of the same name which was penned by Alice Feeney. 

It is being developed by Ellen DeGeneres' A Very Good Production and Warner Bros. TV, but no network is attached at this moment in time.

With Gellar attached, it sure sounds like the project that will start a bidding war, but time will tell. 

Gellar stars as Amber Reynolds on the series, a woman who awakes in a hospital, unable to move, speak or open her eyes.

While she's able to hear everyone around her, the others are not aware of this fact. With no idea what paved the way for her to end up in such a dire situation, Amber suspects her husband could have something to do with it.

The timeline fluctuates between "her paralyzed present, the week before her accident, and a series of childhood diaries from 20 years ago."

"How exciting is this?!? I read this book in one sitting, and just knew, I had to make this," Gellar gushed about the project on her Facebook account, adding:

"And how lucky that @theellenshow agreed with me. #SometimesILie ..... but not about this."

Gellar was propelled to stardom for her role as Buffy Summers on The WB/UPN series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. 

Her most recent regular TV gig was on CBS comedy series, The Crazy Ones, but the series was canceled after just one season in 2014. 

Before that, Gellar starred on the failed CW drama series, Ringer in which she played a set of twins who seemingly hated one another.
