Comedians Shine in ‘Kirstie’

The cast of TV Land’s new original 
sitcom “Kirstie,” premiering Wednesday, 
December 4th at 10pm ET/PT. 
(L-R) Michael Richards, Rhea Perlman,
Kirstie Alley and Eric Petersen

Kirstie Alley has had her ups and downs over the years from her start as a Vulcan in the Star Trek II movie to her most recent stint on Dancing with the Stars where she proved that she is still well-liked. This week she unveils a new character that was tailor-made for the actress in the new sitcom, “Kirstie” which premieres Wednesday, December 4 at 10:00 p.m. on the TVLand network.

The Emmy® Award-winner Alley portrays successful Broadway star Madison Banks who has been in the limelight so long that she doesn’t know how to relate to “everyday” people. That is about to change as she meets Arlo (Eric Petersen), the son she gave up for adoption, for the very first time. Arlo’s adopted mother has recently passed away and he became curious about finding his birth mom. Helping Madison get over this shock is her personal assistant, Thelma (“Cheers” co-star Rhea Perlman) and limo driver Frank (“Seinfeld’s” Michael Richards). In the pilot episode, the cast also featured Gilles Marini as Madison’s personal chef, but must have been dropped after the initial episode as he isn’t seen or mentioned in the subsequent episodes.
