Season 1 Episode Guide

Season 1

12 Episodes 2013 -

Kirstie Alley stars in this TV Land sitcom as Broadway diva Madison "Maddie" Banks, who is floored when a young man named Arlo (Eric Petersen)—the son she gave up for adoption nearly three decades ago—appears at her stage door, but she balks at playing anyone's mother in real life until her assistant, Thelma (Rhea Perlman), and chauffeur, Frank (Michael Richards), convince her that it could be a great career move. Of course, it's all easier said than done, especially when Maddie has a hard time giving up her wild lifestyle for home-cooked meals, birthday parties and Rockwellian Christmases. Fortunately for Maddie, she has plenty to distract her from motherhood when she has to deal with an inept stagehand (John Travolta); an ambitious understudy (Kristin Chenoweth); a worthless agent (Jason Alexander); and a bitter rival (Kristen Johnston) from a long-ago audition. Guest stars include George Wendt, Cloris Leachman, Kathy Griffin, Gilles Marini and Christopher McDonald.
