Alicia Silverstone is to play a New York lawyer in a new TV series by the creator of Sex And The City.
She will play the lead role in the untitled show which has been created by Darren Star.
Silverstone’s character will act as a matchmaker in the show, but her own love life is less than perfect.
“It’s a wonderful character, but the character is only as good as the actor you get,” Star tells www.variety.com.
“Alicia makes this idea make sense to me. You believe her as someone who believes in other people’s happiness. She has a very empathetic quality and innate sweetness to her.”
So far the show is only at the pilot stage.
