The show will premiere at the end of this year and will center on Madison Banks (Alley), a Broadway star. Banks' life takes a turn when the son she gave up at birth shows up unexpectedly. Travolta will guest star as a stagehand on Banks' Broadway show. They have a one-night stand, but Travolta's character wants more. Based on how she gave up her son, though, Banks is clearly not one for commitment.
In a TV Land press release, Travolta expressed his enthusiasm for his reunion with Alley. "I'm excited about working with Kirstie again, in addition to such terrific talent on the show," he said. "It's always a treat to be surrounded by people you respect so much both personally and professionally."
And, as if one reunion wasn't enough, Alley's Cheers costar Rhea Perlman will be joining her on Kirstie. Perlman will play Banks' assistant and best friend.
Kirstie premieres on Wednesday, Dec. 4 on TV Land.
