HR was initially greenlit as a pilot last summer — along with the Renee Zellweger-produced Cinnamon Girl (recently snuffed), The Secret Lives Of Wives (also snuffed) and Witches Of East End (fully cast and ordered to series) — with a contingency placed on the casting of the lead role.

    And she had the lead in Miss Match, a show that wasn’t a hit, but lasted a season and launched the career of James Roday.

      • I loved the episode where Bradley Cooper played a metrosexual. Also that episode is where I first found out about Mapquest. (Hey, it was 10 years ago!)

  • Random thought but does anyone else think she bears a strong resemblance to Maggie Lawson from Psych? I don’t think they’re related but they really do look alike.

  • This will last a season. If that. I’d rather have had a real, final season of drop dead diva.

  • Sounds kinda like ‘Enlightened’ which I love.
    I do like Alicia, she’s a good actress and I’d love to see this be a success.
