Seinfeld Reunion on Kirstie Alley TV Land Sitcom This Fall; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of June 17, 2013)

Kirstie

Looks like we have a Seinfeld mini-reunion on TV Land this fall. 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 (formerly titled Kirstie's New Show) in a guest starring role. Set to tape later this month, the episode reunites Alexander with his former Seinfeld co-star Michael Richards who plays Alley's eccentric driver in the new comedy. The sitcom already was going to be a Cheers reunion since Alley and former Cheers co-star Rhea Perlman are in the main cast. Kirstie revolves around Madison "Maddie" Banks (Kirstie Alley, Cheers), a renowned Broadway star who finds her life turned upside down when Arlo (Eric Petersen), the son she gave up at birth, suddenly appears hoping to connect after his adoptive parents have died. However, Maddie doesn't exactly see nerdy and schlubby Arlo fitting in with her luxurious lifestyle. But when Maddie's assistant and best friend, Thelma (Rhea Perlman, Cheers), and outlandish driver Frank (Michael Richards, Seinfeld) encourage her to give Arlo a chance, Maddie is shocked to find that perhaps she has motherly instincts after all.

TV Land has ordered 12 episodes of the sitcom. We will have a premiere date very soon. In other TV Land news, just the other day we mentioned 'Til Death is coming to TV Land and we mentioned it would just be airing on Saturdays...but now it will be airing more. The sitcom will also air weekdays 7-8pm as well as the previously announced Saturday block from 5-8pm. The weekday block will lead-in to Everybody Loves Raymond, which also stars Brad Garrett. As a reminder, TV Land launches Friends tonight. Friends will also be part of the "Summer of Sitcoms Marathons," a four-nights-per-week extravaganza every Thursday through Sunday starting at 10pm ET/PT beginning June 20. TV Land has Doug and Carrie heading up Thursday nights on King of Queens, a super Friends Friday, Ray and his crazy (but loveable) family on Everybody Loves Raymond on Saturday, and your favorite seniors on The Golden Girls on Sunday. And finally, as we mentioned Three's Company is back on weekday mornings from 5-6am but it will also air Sunday mornings from 6am-10am starting June 30.


It's Friday, so it is time for "Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows" for the coming week. This is where we list what sitcom stars are appearing on talk shows for the coming week, the stars are both current and past sitcom stars, so this is for all sitcom fans of all eras!
