John Travolta has signed up for a TV gig that will reunite him with his "Look Who's Talking" co-star Kirstie Alley. The "Pulp Fiction" actor is slated to guest star on TV Land's new original sitcom "Kirstie".
"I'm excited about working with Kirstie again, in addition to such terrific talent on the show," the Daniel "Danny" Zuko of "Grease" says in a press release. "It's always a treat to be surrounded by people you respect so much both personally and professionally."
The equally excited Alley tweets, "John Travolta is gonna be on our new show KIRSTIE!!!!!! SOOO excited to work together again!!! We are gonna have a BALL!! @tvland !!"
Alley stars in and executive produces "Kirstie", which centers on her character Madison Banks, a Broadway star whose life is turned upside-down when Arlo (Eric Petersen), the son she gave up at birth, suddenly appears in her life, hoping to connect after his adoptive parents have died. Also featuring Rhea Perlman and Michael Richards, the comedy will premiere Wednesday, December 4.
Travolta will play a stagehand on the Broadway show that stars Maddie. He will shoot his part later this month and his episode will air sometime in the season. The role marks the "Saturday Night Fever" star's first TV gig since he took a main role on 1970s "Welcome Back, Kotter".
Alley and Travolta played a couple who met by a chance in 1989's romantic comedy movie "Look Who's Talking". They reprised their roles in the two sequels, "Look Who's Talking Too" (1990) and "Look Who's Talking Now" (1993).
