Alicia Silverstone to Star as Free-Wheeling HR Boss in Long-Gestating Lifetime Pilot
Formerly Clueless one Alicia Silverstone has signed on to headline the Lifetime pilot HR, lifting a cast contingency on the project and allowing it to move forward with production, our sister site Deadline reports.
Silverstone will play the Director of Human Resources for an international conglom who, after suffering a brain injury, adopts a less-rigid and more bold approach to her job.
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.
Silverstone’s TV credits include a Season 1 arc on Clueless co-star Jeremy Sisto’s Suburgatory, a Childrens Hospital appearance and the ill-fated 2006 NBC sitcom The Singles Table.
