Paramount Network
We've been waiting for someone to hand Alicia Silverstone a meaty, Cher Horowitz-level role for a while now, and we're crossing our fingers that this is the one.

She also gets a taste of the decade's "new freedoms" – drugs! swingers' parties! second-wave feminism! – alongside friends played by American Pie/American Beauty actress Mena Suvari (we're sensing a theme here) and UCB alumna Jennifer Bartels. Yes, the hair is Farrah Fawcett-feathered; yes, the Guess Who song does show up on the soundtrack. DF
