Sarah Michelle Gellar was so infuriated when she learned her husband Freddie Prinze Jr planned to make an hour-long sitcom, she ordered him to slice the episodes in half.

While the former BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER star was happy for her husband of three years to be starring in semi-autobiographical show FREDDIE, she was far from thrilled when she realised how intense his filming schedule would be.

Prinze says, "The original idea for the new show, Freddie, was for an hour-long show, and then Sarah said, 'Are you crazy? You know what kind of hours I worked? You better rework it into a half-hour!'

"So I did! I always listen to my wife. That's why I still have one!"
