KIRSTIE ALLEY TO STAR IN NEW SITCOM

Kirstie Alley is set to star in a US version of hit British comedy 'The Vicar of Dibley'.The former 'Cheers' actress, 56, will star in 'The Minister of Divine' as a preacher who returns to the small town where she was once a teenage rebel. Fox TV will make a pilot episode of the new comedy, co-produced by 'Vicar' creator Richard Curtis, before deciding whether to go ahead with a complete series. British comedienne Dawn French has played the lead role in 'The Vicar of Dibley' since it began in 1994. Since 'Cheers' ended in 1993, Kirstie has had roles in several comedy sitcoms including 'Veronica's Closet' and 'Fat Actress', which mocked her real-life battle with obesity. In November 2006 she appeared on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' in a bikini to show off her new figure, having lost a total of 75lb.
