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.
