Show Summary

Fat Actress, a half-hour hybrid comedy/reality series, stars Emmy-Award winning actress Kirstie Alley, who plays a fictional version of herself: a successful television and movie star whose weight gain has become the subject of every tabloid imaginable as well as the blight of her existence as she tries to find work and true love in an unforgiving Hollywood.

Bravely willing to lampoon the image that has been mercilessly ridiculed over the past few years, Alley will give us a glimpse of the humor and the irony in her battle to lose weight and get back on television in a tough business that prefers the svelte figures seen on the most successful actresses of today.

This irreverent new series is generally unscripted, with each episode emanating from a story outline and the actors largely improvising the dialogue. The show's story-lines will be drawn from a heightened perception of Alley's real-life experiences, and some of Alley's friends have promised to appear as themselves in guest cameos to further blur the lines between truth and fiction.
