A mini-Cheers reunion is on its way!
Former co-stars Kirstie Alley and Rhea Perlman are reuniting on the small screen this fall for Kirstie's New Show. The sitcom, picked up by TV Land, centers on Maddie (Alley), a Broadway star whose life gets turned upside-down when the son (Eric Petersen) she gave up for adoption seeks her out.
"This cast is a TV Land dream team of stars," said network President Larry W. Jones in a statement announcing the newly greenlit series. "Seeing them all together is truly mind-blowing,"
Perlman will play Alley's assistant and best friend, Thelma. Seinfeld star Michael Richards will also co-star.
Kirstie's New Show is slated to air this fall on TV Land.
