Looks like Kirstie Alley and Rhea Perlman get to rub elbows again...
Perlman has closed a deal to co-star opposite Alley in Alley’s ABC pilot The Manzanis. The family comedy, written by sitcom veterans Marco Pennette and Dave Flebotte, stars Alley as Angela Manzani, an opinionated wife/mother who, along with her Italian-American family, moves to a quiet New Jersey neighborhood where they clash with their new, WASPy neighbors. Perlman will play Angela’s mother in law Camille Manzani.
They were hilarious together on Cheers, so I imagine having them play mother and daughter should be a big ole "What's a matta wit'choo?" hoot.
