TV Land Cancels Kirstie Alley's Sitcom After Single Season
According to Deadline, TV Land has opted not to renew Kirstie Alley's series, aptly titled KIRSTIE, after a single season. KIRSTIE, which received a luke-warm welcome from critics when it premiered last December, failed to find an audience.
The series centered around Broadway star Madison "Maddie" Banks (Alley) whose life turns upside down when Arlo (Petersen), the son she gave up at birth, suddenly appears hoping to connect. Rhea Perlman ("Cheers") stars as Maddie's BFF/long-suffering assistant Thelma alongside Michael Richards ("Seinfeld") as Maddie's outlandish driver Frank.
"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.
