Tell me if this doesn’t make you feel old: Alicia Silverstone, who you loved as the original mean girl on Clueless, is now set to play the mother of a 16 year old on a new TV series, Bad Mother’s Handbook. Hollywood Reporter has the scoop:
The single-camera “Handbook,” from ABC Studios, writers Jennifer Konner and Alexandra Rushfield and director Richard Shepard, centers on Karen (Silverstone), a 32-year-old woman too busy taking care of her 16-year-old daughter (Shawkat) and 48-year-old mother.
Silverstone, who recently starred in David Mamet’s “Speed the Plow” at the Geffen Playhouse, toplined NBC’s 2003 dramedy “Miss Match,” for which she received a Golden Globe nomination. She is repped by UTA and attorneys Harold Brown and Bianca Levin.
