Alicia Silverstone has landed the lead role in American Woman, TV Land’s pilot about the youth of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Kyle Richards, THR reports. Silverstone will play a character inspired by Richards’s mother, a single mom raising two daughters “amid the sexual revolution and the rise of feminism” in the 1970s. Despite the turbulence of the time, Silverstone’s character is expected to teach her daughters that in Beverly Hills you can be anything, but it’s most important to be yourself.
