Rhea Perlman joins Kirstie Alley's sitcom pilot

It’s a “Cheers” reunion! Deadline reports that Rhea Perlman has joined the cast of Kirstie Alley's potential ABC comedy series “The Manzanis.”

Perlman, 63, will play Alley's mother-in-law on the show’s pilot. (By the way, Rhea is only three years older than Kirstie!)

The multi-camera comedy centers on opinionated Angela Manzani (Alley) and her Italian American family, who move to an uptight neighborhood in New Jersey.

According to Deadline, the sitcom “is described as a new take on ‘Roseanne.’”

Alley and Perlman did six seasons together as Rebecca and Carla on “Cheers,” until the show ended in 1993. In 2005, Rhea made an appearance on Alley’s docu-series “Fat Actress.”

    I always liked Rhea Perlman. I would really like to see a cheers reunion, though. How funny would that be with everyone so much older! Could be a laugh riot!
