Kirstie Alley has signed a deal with Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Productions to develop television projects -- which could include her own daily show.

"Kirstie is a tremendous talent who is incredibly relatable and a true fan favorite," said Tim Bennett, president of Harpo Productions.

The actress, 57, recently stepped away from her role as an official spokeswoman for Jenny Craig, and announced plans to launch her own weigh-loss brand.



Alley, who notably modeled a bikini The Oprah Winfrey Show after losing 75 lbs., said she hopes her willingness to be honest and open will come together to help her "offer something totally fresh for the television audience.”
