Bette is an American television sitcom created by Jeffrey Lane and starring Bette Midler as a fictional version of herself - a "divine celebrity" who is adored by her fans and in which she pokes sharp, satiric fun at her image, her career, her ego and her various roles as diva, wife and mother.

The series aired in the USA on CBS from 11 October, 2000 to 7 March, 2001. There are 18 half-hour episodes in one season.

Synopsis

The incomparable Bette Midler comes to television in Bette, a comedy in which she pokes sharp, satiric fun at her image, her career, her ego and her various roles as diva, wife and mother.

Bette Midler plays herself - a divine celebrity who is adored by her fans. Although she is a celebrity, her family is often ashamed of her - Bette is constantly on diets and far away in dreams - she is everything but a perfect celebrity.

Although her life is a mess, she loves it!

Making up her inner circle are her 13-year-old daughter, Rose (Linsday Lohan in the pilot; thereafter Marina Malota); her best friend and manager, Connie (Joanna Gleason), and her accompanist, Oscar (James Dreyfus).

The series was produced by CBS Productions in association with Columbia TriStar Television.
