Alicia Silverstone to star in Lifetime pilot

Alicia Silverstone is coming to the small screen in a new Lifetime pilot.

Called "HR," the former "Clueless" star will portray an "uptight director of human resources" for a worldwide corporation, Deadline reports.

After suffering a head injury, the character rethinks her life and pushes her company to switch up its business practices to achieve new goals and profits. That description sounds like it could be comedic, but the pilot is described as a drama.

Although Silverstone, 36, is primarily known for her film career, the actress isn't new to TV. She held roles in "Braceface" and "Miss Match" in the early aughts and recently guest-starred on ABC's "Suburgatory" with her former "Clueless" co-star, Jeremy Sisto.
