Thesp seals deal with 20th Century Fox TV

Alicia Silverstone has found her match in 20th Century Fox Television.

Silverstone has sealed a one-year talent deal with the studio to develop a new starring vehicle. Thesp most recently starred in NBC’s late, lamented “Miss Match,” which 20th produced, alongside Imagine TV and Darren Star Prods.

Silverstone played an attorney with a knack for matchmaking in the skein, which drew raves but not ratings. Still, fans of the show were disappointed when NBC opted not to test it on another night after its Friday slot failed to deliver.

Once the Peacock put the show on the back burner, 20th immediately began looking at ways to bring Silverstone back to the small screen.

Hence the deal, which insiders place in the high six-figure range.

“We just fell in love with her in the process of her working on ‘Miss Match,’ ” said 20th Century Fox TV prexy Gary Newman. “We think she is a big TV star… and this is a natural fit. It’s one of the most exciting talent deals we’ve made in some time.”

Silverstone will develop either a comedy or drama for the studio, with an emphasis on finding the right multicamera sitcom project.

“We thought her work was great in the drama,” Newman said. “But the way she lights up the stage, we think she’s going to be a home run in a comedy. We’re looking to package her with a great writer.”

Besides “Miss Match,” Silverstone recently appeared in the feature “Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed.” She’s still best known for starring turns in features such as “Clueless,” “Batman & Robin,” “The Babysitter” and “The Crush.”

She’ll next be seen in Queen Latifah feature “Beauty Shop.”
