Kirstie Alley may have a prime-time show after all, though not the HBO or TV Land one she said she was destined for: ABC is "finalizing deals" for a pilot order on a multi-camera family sitcom, according to Deadline. The Manzanis follows a "very opinionated wife/mother" whose family moves to an uptight town. ABC continues its search for a companion series to The Middle and Modern Family! Alley's stint on Dancing With the Stars put her back in the national spotlight, but it's her truly amazing Twitter feed that keeps her there. Ask her about her lemurs. [Deadline]
