LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Fox has given the go-ahead to "Queen B," a comedy pilot starring Alicia Silverstone, who most recently headlined NBC's short-lived "Miss Match."
Silverstone will play Bea, who always has been the Queen Bee of her world and now runs a successful company, surrounded mostly by adoring friends, but realizes she is not perceived in the same way she sees herself. The pilot was written by "Seinfeld" alumna Jennifer Crittenden.
A FOXY DEAL
(Movie Poop Shoot)
Alicia Silverstone has found her match in 20th Century Fox Television.
Silverstone has sealed a one-year talent deal with the studio to develop a new starring vehicle. Thesp most recently starred in NBC's late, lamented "Miss Match," which 20th produced, alongside Imagine TV and Darren Star Prods.
Silverstone played an attorney with a knack for matchmaking in the skein, which drew raves but not ratings. Still, fans of the show were disappointed when NBC opted not to test it on another night after its Friday slot failed to deliver.
Once the Peacock put the show on the back burner, 20th immediately began looking at ways to bring Silverstone back to the small screen.
Hence the deal, which insiders place in the high six-figure range.
"We just fell in love with her in the process of her working on 'Miss Match,' " said 20th Century Fox TV prexy Gary Newman. "We think she is a big TV star... and this is a natural fit. It's one of the most exciting talent deals we've made in some time."
Silverstone will develop either a comedy or drama for the studio, with an emphasis on finding the right multicamera sitcom project.
"We thought her work was great in the drama," Newman said. "But the way she lights up the stage, we think she's going to be a home run in a comedy. We're looking to package her with a great writer."
Besides "Miss Match," Silverstone recently appeared in the feature "Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed." She's still best known for starring turns in features such as "Clueless," "Batman & Robin," "The Babysitter" and "The Crush."
She'll next be seen in Queen Latifah feature "Beauty Shop." (As reported by VARIETY)
No Longer Clueless
by Lynn B. (agirlsworld.com)
Your first glimpse of pretty, blonde Alicia Silverstone might have been of her carrying a load of Rodeo Drive shopping bags in her breakthrough film Clueless. She donned a cape as Batgirl in the blockbuster Batman and Robin and was a modern girlfriend to Brendan Frasers time-warped dude in the comedy Blast from the Past. Alicia is one actress who wants to broaden her horizons. She left mainstream films briefly to star in a musical version of Loves Labours Lost opposite Kenneth Branagh and went on for a Broadway debut as Elaine Robinson in the comedy The Graduate which broke box-office records.
Alicia has guest-starred in classic rockers Aerosmith music videos and has been nominated for a Golden Globe award for her portrayal of Kate Fox, a divorce lawyer who plays cupid for clients in her t.v. series Miss Match. Alicias company First Kiss Productions produces the popular animated series Braceface on the ABC Family Network.
The busy actress was happy to play the fun role of unsavory t.v. reporter Heather Jasper-Howe in the new Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed film. She found a kinship with Sarah Michelle Gellar in that both actresses were huge American Idol fans. Alicia also dished to us about her worst teenage blind date. She looked like the Girl with the Pearl Earring when we chatted in L.A.s Century City. Her hair was swept up and she was wearing large pearl earrings, red blouse and prim black skirt, giving her that on-camera newsperson look.
AGW: Did you base your newswoman character on anyone in particular?
Alicia: No, not really. Newscasters have that certain affected voice that rounds at the end. I had fun playing with that. Sometimes, there will be one thing that I'll pick up in the script, or that I'll just make up and then create the whole thing around it. I just decided that my character, Heather Jasper-Howe, was truly just trying to protect the citizens of Coolsville and, with all her heart, she is so devastated that Mystery Inc., who she was such a fan of, would put her in a position where she has to report (negatively on them) to the public.
AGW: How was it joining a sequel cast who already knew each other well?
Alicia: Well, I was lucky, in that I didn't work every day, so I got lots of time off to do other things and wander around. But, they were so cool, and everybody was really great. I'd worked with Matt Lillard before on Love's Labour's Lost, which was a very different movie, so I felt some kind of excitement to get to see him and work with him again, and see where our lives had taken us. We've both grown up so much since that time, and things have changed so much for us, that it was neat to experience that with him. But, we didn't get to work with each other at all. We were just around each other. It was one of those great jobs where you don't have to work a lot and you still get to be a part of a great thing. I would just wander around Vancouver and go on dates with myself, and enjoy having dinner in a really neat, nice restaurant by myself and watch people and work on my character. I really had a great time there.
AGW: How fun was it to film the cat fight scene between you and Sarah Michelle Gellar?
Alicia: We had one rehearsal, for an hour or something, one day, where we played with it and kind of worked out what we would do a little bit. I'd never met her before. I remember feeling really good about it. But, the funny part was that she and I were obsessed with the American Idol thing that was going on at the time. Every time we were together, that's what we would talk about. And so, I'd be really mean to her, and then in between takes, we'd be like, So, anyway, what do you think about [what happened on American Idol']? It was also hard because I actually felt really bad [being mean to her], even though she knows that I don't mean it. She looked so sweet and adorable when she was looking up at me, and I was just shooting her venom and being so mean. I remember having a thought of, Oh, she's so cute. She's so sweet. [Laughs] I thought, That's good. She's making it hard.
AGW: Is this the kind of movie you would have gone to see as a kid?
Alicia: I don't even remember seeing movies as a kid. [Laughs] When I was a kid, I watched The Three Stooges' and the tape of The Wizard of Oz, over and over and over again. I don't think I went to see movies that much, until I got older, like 13. I went to see plays at the theater a lot with my parents. But, I think it's a fun movie. I got really scared watching this, but kids are more used to that kind of stuff. They watch that stuff all the time, so they're probably a little less scaredy-cat than me. But, that opening title sequence was so exciting. It was neat.
AGW: Is Miss Match coming back?
Alicia: Well, I won't find out until May, when they tell all the shows what happens to them. We'll see. I just finished shooting about two weeks ago.
AGW: What have you enjoyed about having a television series?
Alicia: It's so exciting for so many different reasons. One of the most exciting parts is getting that script every few days. I can't wait to read it to know what's going to happen to me next. With movies, you know exactly what's going to happen to you, from beginning to end. On this, it's like, Where am I going to go? What am I going to do? What's going to happen? I really love working with NBC and all the actors were so great. And, I just loved my character. I've been having so much fun. It's just great all around.
AGW: Do you have any plans if the series doesn't get picked up?
Alicia: Well, I'm on my hiatus now, so I'm probably going to start a movie. I have to pick one in the next week and then I'll probably start on a film in three or four weeks. I'll probably pick the one that I'm most afraid of. That's usually what I do. And then, I guess, if it doesn't get picked up, I'll just do more films, or produce something, whatever is exciting at the time.
AGW: Your Miss Match character is always setting somebody up on a date. Can you remember your worst date?
Alicia: I think I was 15, and I had a crush on this guy in summer school. He was so cute. He came to pick me up to go see a movie and he was completely different from the guy that I was in summer school with. The guy that I was in summer school with was really cute, intelligent, and just seemed really great. But, now, he was acting like he was in the hood. He was acting all gangster-ish. And, he thought that being rude to me would be a really good tactic. At the time, I had lived in this apartment building where the door would swing back, so you'd have to hold the door open for the person behind you. I would do that for anybody, especially your date. And so, he opened it and it slammed back in my face. And then, we got in the car and were driving to see the movie, and he says, You should give me your money for the movie now because you probably don't look old enough for the movie. And, I was like, You're not going to pay for my movie, and you're going to insult me and say that I don't look as old and sophisticated as you do? Eww. I didn't like him.
AGW: Was that before you were recognizable to the public?
Alicia: Yeah, I was 15. It was before I even did my first film. But, he was young and probably just trying to show off. He was probably just scared, or something. But, we didn't go on another date.
AGW: Are you going back to Broadway anytime soon?
Alicia: I hope so. I really hope so, soon.
Silverstone - Blonde
by Karen M. Shelton
October 26, 2003
Alicia Silverstone (A-lee-see-ah) is no longer Clueless. She is also no longer a teenager. The 27 year old bubbly blonde beauty has her life totally together. Things can only get better for this new sweetheart of NBC's Friday night television schedule.
Not only does Alicia have the promising new NBC series on her hands but all indications point to a recent engagement with her longtime squeeze, singer Chris Jarecki. As if a great love and career life weren't enough, the ambitious Alicia, according to very reliable sources. recently shot a new Cosmo cover in the LA area, which will be on the stands in the next few months.
Being a Cosmo cover girls is just one of many accomplishments that Alicia is adding to her list of growing successes.
When it comes to her hair, Alicia is definitely blessed with great hair. Her gorgeous blonde tresses were hotly copied during her years ago movie reign on Clueless.
In her current TV role, Alicia has adopted a shorter, more contemporary style, befitting her attorney, matchmaking character. Maybe Alicia got some great hair tips from her past hairdresser beau (Mozie Chabbouth) before settling down with Jarecki. Or maybe she just has a special talent for making her hair look great. Whatever the reason, she wins top honors for her hair both off and on the MISS Match set.
Alicia is famous for her funny, bubbly persona. She loves to make others in her life happy. Alicia is reported to be a bit of a homebody, when she is not focused on her stellar career. According to media reports she also adores her canine friend, Sampson, whom she rescued some years ago when she was filming True Crime.
It is common knowledge by those in the know that although Alicia is spending a lot of time in Santa Monica on the Miss Match set she is fundamentally an extremely family-oriented person.
Rumor has it that Alicia and Jarecki are rapidly transitioning from two years of living together bliss to the alter.
It is expected that Alicia and Jarecki will marry very soon. Close sources speculate that Alicia has hopes of adding the mom title to her resume very soon.
And speaking of great matches, Alicia is not playing the role of Kate Fox, a divorce lawyer by day, matchmaker by night. Although critics applauded the show with a round of skyward thumbs, the viewers are not showing up as quickly as it was hoped. However, NBC is not giving up the show and have pledged support to give it time to find its audience. To show their commitment to the show, NBC recently changed the show's time to allow for a little racier format than the original earlier time prevented.
When it comes to hair, Libran Alicia is known for having sultry, sensual great strands.
Bursting onto the scene so many years ago as a gorgeous teen beauty in the Aerosmith video, Alicia's second act was the beautiful blonde princess in Clueless. From there is was on to other movies including the much talked about BatGirl.
Even though her role as BatGirl was controversial, her hair was worthy of the best of the crimefighting crowd.
When Alicia returned to the small screen this Fall her hair color was cranked up several notches giving her a radiant sunkissed hue.
Combining a hot multi-layered style with her new ultra blonde color, Alicia is the perfect blonde bombshell. The newly crafted layers give her heavy, thick, straight hair some well-defined sassy movement and style.
Alicia's shoulder skimming style is also very versatile. She can instantly change it around with a variety of different partings. Or she can crank up or tone down the body and movement by the type of styling she does after each shampoo.
If you watch the show on a regular basis (and you should because it is good) you will notice that Alicia's hairstyles are constantly changing and morphing into different looks. Since her new style is long enough to pull back, she has appeared in chic half up/half down styles and messy but polished ponytails. She also alternates between polished straighter looks and messier but sultry waves and curls.
Whether MISSMatch sticks around long term or not, Alicia Silverstone is one beautiful blonde actress whose star is definitely on the rise.

Fox Hangs on to Silverstone
Miss Match star sticks with 20th Century Fox TV in a small screen deal.
By Mark Umbach, filmstew.com
Alicia Silverstone, recently seen on the big screen in Warner Bros.' Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, has signed a one-year talent holding deal with 20th Century Fox Television. Said to be in the high-six figure range, the new deal will have Fox developing a new starring vehicle for the Golden Globe-nominated actress.
On the small screen, Silverstone recently starred in the short-lived NBC series Miss Match, which earned critical raves but never really found its audience. The show, which 20th TV produced with Imagine TV and Darren Star Prods., drew low numbers in its Friday night timeslot, and the network decided to put the project on the shelf without testing it on another night.
When NBC decided not to keep Miss Match on the air, Fox began thinking of a new way to keep Silverstone on the small screen and eventually hatched the new deal. Silverstone, who earned a Globe nod for her role on Miss Match, will now work on developing either a comedy or drama, although the studio is looking to pair her with a comedy writer to develop a new sitcom.
In addition to Scooby 2, Silverstone has been seen on the big screen in films such as The Crush, Clueless and Batman & Robin. Repped by Paradigm, she will next be seen with Queen Latifah in the Barbershop spin-off Beauty Shop.
new drama series on Star World
[Sunday, March 13, 2005 11:51:00 am, Strategiy.com
Firstnet brings an exciting new series, Miss Match on Star World, every Tuesday at 18:00 and 21:30 (UAE) and a repeat telecast on Wednesday 10:00(UAE). Alicia Silverstone stars in this charming drama from Emmy-Award winning executive producer Darren Star and Jeff Rake. Silverstone gained worldwide acclaim as Cher, the quintessential Beverly Hills teenager with a heart of gold in the hit feature film 'Clueless.'
In this exciting dramedy, she plays a sharp divorce attorney in her fathers law firm, Kate Fox (Silverstone) who has a knack for matchmaking, which she considers a hobby until a socialite bride credits Kate for her romantic success in the press and word of her talent spreads. Soon, to the dismay of her father and her reluctant legal partner Nick (David Conrad), Kate is juggling the conflicting worlds of divorce and true love. With her best friend Victoria (Lake Bell) at her side, Kate is determined to bring a little romance into the world, perhaps finding her own true love in the process.
NBC Still Smitten

Dec 15, 2003, 10:15 PM PT, E-Online
Even though Miss Match has yet to find true ratings love, NBC is apparently still willing to play the field.
Despite struggling in its Friday-night slot against the heavenly Nielsens of CBS' new touched-by-a-deity series, Joan of Arcadia, the Alicia Silverstone-fronted sitcom will live on for at least four more episodes this spring on a new day and time.
Miss Match will probably be back on the air "late February or early March," according to an NBC spokeswoman, who confirmed the extension.
The Peacock's pick-up is a vote of confidence for the series, which stars Silverstone as a matrimonial-minded attorney.
"Friday night is not the best night for it," NBC Entertainment chief Jeff Zucker told Daily Variety. "But we believe in [producers] Darren Star and Jeff Rake, and we absolutely believe in Alicia Silverstone. We're committed to letting it continue to find its audience."
The network had yanked Miss Match from its schedule before November sweeps, after it averaged just 6.4 million viewers in its first few weeks on air, and replaced it with Ed.
NBC is showing unusual restraint in giving Miss Match another shot--shows with similarly disappointing numbers are typically blown out with nary a second thought. But given the talent behind the show and its critical acclaim, Miss Match will get a new chance, with a berth on Monday nights in the slot formerly occupied by the relationship-driven reality series Average Joe, which wrapped its run last week. And to help generate extra buzz, the network has tapped a contestant from that matchmaking hit to guest on Miss Match.
With Miss Match's last-minute reprieve, NBC has now officially decided the fate of all its freshman shows except Rob Lowe's little-watched legal drama The Lyon's Den, which is almost certain to get the axe in the coming weeks, joining the previously discarded Coupling and Boomtown on the network scrap heap.
The network has given the green light for a second season of Tuesday comedies Whoopi and Happy Family, which have both performed well despite stiff competition from ABC's 8 Simple Rules and Fox's The Simple Life.
NBC has also reupped its top-rated frosh drama Las Vegas, which delivered big numbers on Mondays airing between Fear Factor and Average Joe. Speaking of Joe, the network has also ordered another installment of that reality romance, premiering from Hawaii on January 5. Also in the pipeline for next month is the much-ballyhooed debut of The Apprentice, a reality competition from Survivor producer Mark Burnett that will follow 16 go-getters vying for a job with Donald Trump. A second helping of The Restaurant is also on the midseason menu.

Alicia Silverstone Keen To Wed Secret Punk Lover
3 October 2003 (WENN)
Clueless actress Alicia Silverstone's reasons for hitting the road with punk stars S.T.U.N. this summer have been revealed - she's secretly planning to wed the group's singer. The movie star shocked many people when she revealed she'd spent much of the summer touring with the group on American TV show The Tonight Show last week, but, when probed, she coyly insisted she was just "a friend of the band." But singer Chris Jarecki has been living with the Miss Match actress for the past two years and friends claim she's now pushing him to put a wedding ring on her finger. A pal says, "Her wedding plans came out of the blue and Chris is still reeling from her proposal. He adores her and I expect they'll walk down the aisle very soon." Sources claim 27-year-old Alicia's wedding plans are being fuelled by her hopes of becoming a mum. One reveals, "Although she's very career driven, Alicia is also very family-orientated."
