John Travolta To Reunite With Kirstie Alley On Her New TV Land Sitcom
Rhea Pealman also to star, along with a lot of "Cheers" cast, and Jason Alexander...
In a rare TV appearance, John Travolta is set to guest star on TV Land’s new original sitcom Kirstie, reuniting with his Look Who’s Talking co-star Kirstie Alley. Set to shoot early next month, Travolta will play a stagehand on Maddie’s (Alley) Broadway show. After a one-night stand together, Maddie is surprised to find that her fling refuses to be flung. Kirstie, which debuts Dec. 4, centers around Broadway star Madison Banks (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 stars as Maddie’s assistant and best friend alongside Michael Richards as Maddie’s outlandish driver. “I’m excited about working with Kirstie again, in addition to such terrific talent on the show,” Travolta said. “It’s always a treat to be surrounded by people you respect so much both personally and professionally.”

Michael Richards? Really?
I guess they won't have any black people on the show.

How long do you give this trainwreck? 3 months?

It's TV Land, so it'll probably run for a couple of years. They have nothing to lose.

Fresh, original programming with new faces!
What will John and Kirstie's new faces look like?

Anybody watching this? So far I've seen the first two episodes. Pretty much what I expected. Very capable cast with no good stories to work with, just like the other TV Land sitcoms. I probably will occasionally tune in again. The cast looks like it's happy to finally be on TV again and I am content enough watching this unambitious show. I really wish though TV Land let the writers come up with a bit more intelligent stories.

R6, what makes you think TVLand is impeding the writers from writing better stories? I don't work on their shows but anyone who works in television will tell you that the bad writing...? It comes directly from the writers themselves.

No. Can't stand that loud mouth pig Kuntie Alley.

Michael Richards is an absolute deal breaker for me and everybody that I could tell.

Why would anyone want to watch this smug, insane, dishonest, stupid $cio hack parade her fat ass once again in front of the cameras? I can stand a lot of people as performers who I wouldn't like as people, but this bitch has carried water for the cult too publicly and nastily to be tolerable.
Rhea Perlman and Michael Richards sound like they're careers were so far in the crapper that they had to take anything offered. And Travolta's just doing what a closeted $cio does.
LOVE all the stories about Alley's pussy-bumping sessions with Mrs. Travolta/Kelly Preston. Hypocrites. Shills. Losers.

Meanwhile, arch-enemy Leah Remini is guesting on "The Exes." I don't know if the two shows are on the same lot, but if they ever crossed paths ...

I like the show, Zenu help me.

It's so stupid. Kirstie Alley is just completely unlikeable and Michael Richards is playing his "Kramer" act all over again and is about ten times as irritating as he was on Seinfeld.

Bring back Kirstie's series where she owned a lingerie company. I enjoyed that.

Hopefully OnJ will stay away and everyone will live to see tomorrow.

I checked out the first two episodes. It had some amusing lines and Rhea Pearlman is good in her role but I can't watch it anymore because Kirstie Alley just looks so unappealing with that horrendously heavy makeup and giant ass...I thought she was a drag queen.
