(from TV Land's press release, November 2016) TV Land announced today the series pick-up of 1970s period dramedy "American Woman," starring Alicia Silverstone ("Clueless," "Suburgatory"), Mena Suvari ("American Beauty," "Chicago Fire") and Jennifer Bartels ("Broken"). Inspired by the real-life upbringing of co-executive producer Kyle Richards ("The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills"), "American Woman" is written and executive produced by Emmy(R) winner John Riggi ("30 Rock," "The Comeback"), and is executive produced by Emmy(R) winner John Wells ("Shameless," "ER," "The West Wing"). The 12-episode series will be produced by John Wells Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television for TV Land. Alex Hardcastle ("You're the Worst") directed and served as executive producer on the pilot. Set amid the sexual revolution and the rise of second-wave feminism, "American Woman" follows Bonnie (Silverstone), an unconventional mother struggling to raise her two daughters (Makenna James and Lia Ryan McHugh) after leaving her husband.
