Kirstie Alley is headed to Broadway...on TV at least. TV Land has officially granted a series order to the Cheers alum's new comedy pilot about a high-maintenance Broadway star, reports Deadline.com.
The series (originally titled Giant Baby, but set to be renamed) follows Madison “Maddie” Banks, a Broadway diva whose life is flipped upside down when the grown son she gave up for adoption (Peter and the Starcatcher’s Eric Petersen) tries to enter her life after the death of his adoptive mother. Alley and Petersen will star alongside Cheers’ Rhea Perlman and Seinfeld’s Michael Richards.
Alley seems to be incredibly enthusiastic about the news in a just released YouTube in which she hits the streets of Manhattan to celebrate. Check it out below!
