Los Angeles (USA), Dec.– La En España Cheers is linked to the good memories of the after-dinner meal, at the end of the 80s within the Jesús Hermida program A mi manera. That preferential window in TVE programming, which still only competed with the regional channels, gave greater prominence to the phenomenon that was in the US.

The bar comedy, with Ted Danson and Alley in their sexual tension in each episode, turned Cheers into the outpost of choral sitcoms that had the greatest voltage in their dialogues.

In full success of the television series, Alley also starred in Look Who’s Talking (1989) with John Travolta, the story of a baby raised by a single mother. The boy narrated his experiences in the first person (in Spain the voice was given by the comedian Moncho Borrrajo).

In 1987 she was hired to be part of Cheers, one of the most important comedies on American television in which she played Rebecca Howe, a bar manager who aspires to marry a millionaire man from Boston.
