Rhea Perlman And Kirstie Alley Have Mini Cheers Reunion For New Pilot!

| Filed under: TV NewsSilly!Kirstie Alley


TV Land used to be all about showing classic sitcom reruns. It even showed reruns of Cheers.

Now that the channel is dipping its toes into original content, they've decided to stick with the Cheers magic and cast both Rhea Perlman and Kirstie Alley in a new pilot called Giant Baby!

We KNOW you're hoping and praying that it's actually about a mutant giant baby, but we have some bad news for you — it isn't. It's about this:

'Madison “Maddie” Banks (Alley), a Broadway star who finds her life turned upside down when Arlo, her long-lost son, turns up looking to connect after his adopted mother has died. Perlman will play Thelma, Maddie’s long-suffering assistant and best friend, who encourages her boss to form a relationship with her son.'

That sounds good enough for us to nibble a little bit, we'd say!

Here's what the execs said:

“We’ve hit the jackpot getting Kirstie and Rhea back together. It’s a dream to work with such talented comedic actors like these ladies and create a show for them that’s funny and has interesting characters — Giant Baby hits all of those notes.”

Unfortunately for us, there's no word on when we'll get to see it. Also, strangely, the duo were all set to be in an ABC multi-camera sitcom together last year, but nothing came of it.

We bet they'll have better luck on TV Land!

Plus, maybe this will take Rhea's mind off the whole divorce thing!

    Kirstie is so desperate to stay relevant she's resorted to applying so much make-up that she could moonlight as a Ringling Bros. clown….

    Kirstie has a a lot of face work done; she's morphing into that hideous Joan Rivers…
