Great news for television – it looks like Darren Star (the great Aaron Spelling’s protegé, and the creator, writer and executice producer behind hit shows like Sex And The City, Beverly Hills 90210, and Melrose Place) is coming back to the small screen.
Deadline.com is reporting that Star is being tipped to direct the pilot episode of Alicia Silverstone’s new show, HR.
According to Deadline.com, “HR (which, the cable network, Lifetime says is a working title), focuses on the professional and personal changes Silverstone’s Ellen Bell, the uptight Director of Human Resources for a multinational corporation, goes through after suffering a head injury”.
Star and Silverstone have worked together before on the sitcom 2003 Miss Match (ran for one season).
HR is only at pilot stage, so there is no guarantee that it will get picked up for a full season. However, with Darren Star behind the scenes and Alicia Silverstone heading up the team on screen, hopefully this will be some fabulous Aaron Spelling type TV, 21st century style!
