Kirstie centered on Madison Banks (Cheers alum Alley), a Broadway star who finds her life turned upside down when her son (Eric Petersen) turns up looking to reconnect with his biological mother after his adopted mom dies. The series boasted an all-star cast including Rhea Perlman and Seinfeld's Michael Richards. (Perlman has already lined up a new gig with an arc on Fox's The Mindy Project.)

The news comes after Kirstie creator and showrunner Marco Pennette exited the series at the conclusion of the 12-episode first season, which concluded in February.

TV Land, meanwhile, has a roster of originals including Darren Starr's Younger, Jennifer Falls, The Soul Man, The Exes and veteran Hot in Cleveland. The cabler is also in talks to pick up Jim Gaffigan's CBS family comedy and has pilot Teachers in the works.
