Kirstie Alley gets her own reality series at A&E
The cable network has ordered 10 episodes of the as-yet-untitled show, which will follow Alley's up-and-down journey with weight loss and life as a single mom of two. She last starred in the Showtime comedy series "Fat Actress."
Alley will join A&E's stable of reality celebrities including Dog the Bounty Hunter, Gene Simmons and, this December, Steven Seagal.
According to the network, Alley's show will specifically see the actress "launching a new weight loss program, patenting multiple inventions, working hard to raise two normal Hollywood teenagers, True and Lillie, taking care of eight ringtail lemurs, and on top of everything, looking for love."
The series, which is being produced by FremantleMedia, will air next year.
