LIFETIME ORDERS SCRIPTED PILOT HR (working title)
LOS ANGELES, CA (July 30, 2012) – Lifetime has ordered the scripted pilot HR (working title) for 2013, it was announced today by Rob Sharenow, Executive Vice President, Programming, of Lifetime Networks.
In HR, after a head injury alters her outlook on life, the uptight Director of Human Resources for a global company throws standard corporate practices out the window and inspires the business to strive for new ambitions and profits. Her newly liberated managerial style and untraditional female point-of-view in a predominately male company is a welcome relief to some, while others see it as a threat to their power and position within the corporate structure — testing the workplace relationships inside and out of this seemingly traditional office. Written by Glenn Porter (I Melt with You), HR will be executive produced by Aaron Kaplan and Kapital Entertainment (Terra Nova, The Neighbors, GCB) and co-executive produced by Porter and Michael Lohmann.
HR joins the recently announced pilot orders for Cinnamon Girl, The Secret Lives of Wives (working title) and Witches of East End.
Lifetime’s current scripted slate includes The Client List, starring and executive produced by Jennifer Love Hewitt, which wrapped its first season in June; season six of the hit drama Army Wives; Drop Dead Diva, currently in its fourth season; and the recently picked up drama Devious Maids.
