Lifetime has ordered a new drama pilot: HR. The project joins three other recent pilot orders (Cinnamon Girl, The Secret Lives of Wives and Witches of East End) from the female skewing network which is looking to aggressively expand its scripted line up.
Created by Glenn Porter, HR follows the uptight Director of Human Resources for a global company who suffers a head injury that alters her outlook on life. After the injury she 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. Kapital Entertainment is producing with Aaron Kaplan service as executive producer.
