A reunion of Cheers stars Rhea Perlman and Kirstie Alley is in the works for a new TV pilot! 

TV Land announced Thursday that the pilot -- called Giant Baby -- will tell the story of a Broadway star (Alley) who finds her life turned upside down when her long-lost son turns up to establish a relationship after his adopted mother dies.

Perlman will play Alley's long-suffering assistant and best friend who encourages her boss to connect with her son.

"We've hit the jackpot getting Kirstie and Rhea back together," said Keith Cox, TV Land's EVP of development and original programming. "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," he added.
