#CluelessHR to take over US TV screens?
US actress - and star of the eminently quotable film classic Clueless - Alicia Silverstone is about to enter into the world of HR... even if only within the context of a TV show (entitled 'HR'), reports from the US suggest.
So is 2013 the year that HR goes fully mainstream in terms of media representation?
It was only last week that we reported on the fourth series of BBC Radio 4 comedy drama 'HR' hitting the airwaves.
Alicia Silverstone to shoot US TV 'HR' pilot in 2013?
Deadline.com reports that Ms Silverstone has signed up to appear in a pilot episode for a new US TV programme entitled 'HR.'

Deadline provides further details of what we might expect from HR the US TV pilot (and potentially a full series at some future point, all being well):
Written by Glenn Porter (I Melt With You), HR centers on the uptight Director of Human Resources for a global company (Silverstone) 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.Clueless: The HR perspective
