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!

That’s Entertainment!

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
