Alicia Silverstone will be returning to TV as the lead in Lifetime's "Hr," Deadline reports.
The actress, who most recently visited her "Clueless" co-star Jeremy Sisto for a stint on "Suburgatory," will play "the uptight Director of Human Resources for a global company who, after a head injury alters her outlook on life, throws standard corporate practices out the window and inspires the business to strive for new ambitions and profits."
Deadline reports that although the pilot was initially ordered last year, the pickup was contingent upon casting a recognizable lead, so the network spent time making sure that they'd found the right actress for the job.

On a sultry summer day in Richmond, Va. -- the Confederate capital during the Civil War -- a film crew has gathered at an historic building refitted to look like a telegraph office. The scene being shot features Abraham Lincoln (Billy Campbell) receiving a message and then discussing it with Secretary of War Edwin Stanton (Graham Beckel).
Despite the sweltering heat, the bearded men wear waistcoats and jackets, and the women are decked out in period dresses, with corsets. The only person who seems comfortable is local actor Benjamin Perkinson, with his little suit and slicked-back hair, as Lincoln's young son, Tad.
In production is "Killing Lincoln," set to air Sunday, Feb. 17, on National Geographic Channel, a two-hour mix of drama and documentary based on the best-selling "historical thriller" of the same name by Fox News Channel anchor Bill O'Reilly ("The O'Reilly Factor") and historian/researcher Martin Dugard. Tom Hanks narrates. »

Campbell will play Thomas Fineman in the project, which is set in a world where love is deemed illegal and is able to be eradicated with a special procedure.
Thomas is a wealthy lobbyist who supports the use of the procedure, which leads to a peaceful society free of the ups and downs of romantic entanglement. Despite his good looks and perfect image, though, Campbell’s character can be reduced to unbridled rage during times of trouble.
