JASON ALEXANDER SET TO GUEST STAR IN TV LAND'S NEW SITCOM “KIRSTIE” ALONGSIDE SERIES REGULAR AND FELLOW “SEINFELD” ALUM MICHAEL RICHARDS
New York, NY – June 13, 2013 – 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."
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.

    They have a lot of interesting Comedic actors, then again TV LAND is known for producing new comedy shows with solid comedic performers from comedy hits of the 80s and 90s. I will be checking this show out, I like kirstie alley. Maybe they will bring John Travolta in from their movies look who’s talking. I loved the first and second films, the third with dogs was meh..

    Why is it called Kirstie if the main character’s name is Maddie?

    Why was The Cosby Show called The Cosby Show when they were the Huxtables? They want star power and for it to be recognized.
