Lifetime has ordered the scripted pilot HR (working title) for 2013, adding to recent orders for pilots of Cinnamon Girl, The Secret Lives of Wives (w.t.) and Witches of East End.
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, the network said. 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 and co-executive produced by Porter and Michael Lohmann.
