TV LAND GIVES SERIES PICK-UP TO ALICIA SILVERSTONE-ANCHORED "AMERICAN WOMAN"

THE SERIES FROM EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS JOHN WELLS AND JOHN RIGGI, AND WARNER HORIZON TELEVISION WILL DEBUT IN 2017

New York, NY - November 7, 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. With the help of her two best friends, Kathleen (Suvari) and Diana (Bartels), these three women will each discover their own brand of independence in a world reluctant to give it.

"We feel very lucky to be working with John Riggi and John Wells on this fantastic series that is not only beautifully written and directed, but has a stellar cast that portrays the themes of the '70s in a way that is still relevant today," said Keith Cox, President of Development and Original Programming for TV Land.
