Kirstie Alley is reportedly frustrated with ABC.
The 61-year-old actress is rumoured to be planning on making a huge comeback.
It is said that Kirstie, who has been associated with ABC through reality competition Dancing with the Stars recently, was promised by network executives that she would star in her own show.
That deal fell through and Kirstie is livid.
'ABC led her to believe that she would get her dream show,' a source told Star magazine.
'She’s convinced that this bait-and-switch is a strategy of the network.'
Kirstie has received an Emmy Award and a Golden Globe for her primetime acting on comedy show Cheers.
Kirstie enjoyed portraying character Rebecca Howe for six years from 1987.
'The happiest times of her life were when she was on Cheers, and she is dying to have an opportunity like that again,' the insider said.
'She feels duped by ABC—she truly believed she was heading for a great comeback.'
