This series aired during the 2011-2012 season, and features a twisting film noir story in which pretty much everyone has something to hide. Gellar plays Bridget Kelly, a prostitute who witnesses a mob hit and is the case's only lead. Terrified of being murdered before she can testify, she escapes police custody and meets up with her identical twin sister Siobhan (also Gellar, naturally). They take a boat trip, and Bridget wakes up from a nap to discover Siobhan has vanished. She has no idea what's going on, but knows an opportunity when she sees it and takes over her sister's identity when she returns to shore, helped by the fact that Siobhan never told anyone she had a twin sister.
