Jason Alexander has officially moved on from Vandalay Industries - now he's got a new job as Broadway star Maddie Banks' (Kirstie Alley) agent in TV Land's new sitcom "Kirstie" in a guest starring role. Set to shoot later this month, the show reunites Alexander with his former "Seinfeld" co-star Michael Richards who plays Alley's eccentric driver in the new comedy.

Alexander shared, "It is a strange and wonderful thing to be working on a brand new show yet surrounded by familiar faces and friends. I'm looking forward to a fun and fabulous time."

Jason Alexander starred on Broadway in the original companies of "Merrily We Roll Along;" "The Rink;" "Broadway Bound;" "Accomplice;" and "Jerome Robbins' Broadway," for which he won the Tony, Outer Critics, and Drama Desk Awards as Best Actor in a Musical. He also authored the libretto of the show, which received the Tony Award for Best Musical. On the L.A. stage, Jason has starred in "Give 'Em Hell, Harry;" "Defiled;" the long-running hit "The Producers" with Martin Short and the very first Reprise production, "Promises, Promises." He is best known as the character George Costanza on the long-running NBC sitcom 'Seinfeld.'

The show centers around Broadway star Madison Banks (Kirstie Alley) whose life turns upside down when Arlo (Eric Petersen), the son she gave up at birth, suddenly appears, hoping to connect after his adoptive parents have died. Rhea Perlman ("Cheers") stars as Maddie's assistant and best friend alongside Richards ("Seinfeld") as Maddie's outlandish driver.

"Kirstie" is written and executive produced by Marco Pennette and is also executive produced by Kirstie Alley and Jason Weinberg. Larry W. Jones and Keith Cox serve as executive producers for TV Land.
