Fox has ordered a pilot for a reboot of the 1976-1985 CBS comedy starring Linda Lavin as a widow from New Jersey who starts a new life by working at a roadside dinner in Phoenix, Arizona. Alice was based on the 1974 Martin Scorsese movie Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore. Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody is teaming with former 2 Broke Girls writer Liz Astroff on the reboot, which Deadline says revolves around "Long Island housewife Alice Hyatt, who has finally worked up the courage to leave her cheating husband. She drives cross-country to Arizona with her teenage son Tommy, and gets a job as a waitress at a roadside diner where the staff becomes their new surrogate family." The original Alice won eight Golden Globe awards, including one for best TV series -- comedy or musical and two for Lavin for best actress. Alice was also nominated for eight Emmys.
