Alicia Silverstone, 'Bad Mother's Handbook'( Glenn Campbell / NBC )
'Bad Mother's Handbook'
Who's in it and where youve seen them: Miss "Clueless" herself, Alicia Silverstone. Silverstone, who also starred in television's "Miss Match," plays a young mother to a 16-year-old, played by Alia Shawkat, whom you'll remember as Maeby, the "Arrested Development" cousin who put Michael Cera's character in a constant state of confusion.
Whos behind it: ABC, home of female-driven comedies like "Ugly Betty," and creators Jennifer Konner and Alexandra Rushfield, the executive producers behind "Help Me Help You."
Why youll watch: Alicia Silverstone is old enough to play a mom? Raising her teen in the shadow of her own 48-year-old mother, Silverstone will be caught in the intergenerational game of women, which, if it's anything like "Gilmore Girls," will provide plenty of drama and comedy for many a season. And anything that brings "Arrested" alumni back into our living rooms is a bonus.
