“HR” is the working title of Silverstone’s and Starr’s pilot. The story focuses on a character named Ellen Bell, to be played by Silverstone. Shortly after Bell suffers a head injury, she begins to experience professional and personal changes in her life as the formerly uptight director of Human Resources at a multinational corporation.
Star will also serve as an executive producer on the Lifetime pilot, along with Aaron Kaplan. Glenn Porter and Michael Lohmann will be co-executive producers. There is no expected airdate for the project.
This is far from the first TV project for Silverstone, best known for her role in the film, “Clueless.” In 2003, the actress starred in the single-season series, “Miss Match.” Silverstone also had roles in unaired pilots, “Queen B” and “Pink Collar.” Star, who created “Beverly Hills 90210” and “Melrose Place,” was also responsible for “Miss Match.”
Both actress and director are likely hoping for a better outcome this time around.
