Kirstie Alley is gearing up to document her weight struggles in front of the nation with a new reality series for A&E.
Alley, 58, has signed on for 10-episode series which will follow her as she works hard to get back in shape while raising two teenagers in Hollywood, according to People magazine.
In May, the former “Cheers” star admitted she had gained 83 pounds after trimming down to 145 pounds with Jennie Craig in previous years.
The move to reality television seems a likely next step for Alley, who has become best known for her up and down struggles with weight.
Robert Sharenow, a VP for A&E, said it is precisely Alley’s willingness to share her story that makes her “exactly the kind of star” the network is drawn to.
“Her personal life has been playing out in the media for years, but this will be the first time she’ll be opening up her home to reveal her real life for the cameras,” Sharenow told People.
The still untitled show is set to debut in 2010.
