Rhea Perlman, Kirstie Alley to Reunite for TV Land Pilot GIANT BABY

Related: GIANT BABY, TV LAND

Rhea Perlman will reunite with longtime friend and former "Cheers" co-star Kirstie Alley in the pilot "Giant Baby," it was announced today by Keith Cox, executive vice president, development and original programming, TV Land. Perlman will play Thelma, Maddie's (Alley) long-suffering assistant and best friend, who encourages her boss to form a relationship with the son she gave up for adoption, Arlo (previously known as "Owen"). The network originally announced the Alley-headlined project as a presentation last month.

"We've hit the jackpot getting Kirstie and Rhea back together," said Cox. "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."

"Giant Baby" revolves around Madison "Maddie" Banks, a Broadway star who finds her life turned upside down when Arlo, her long-lost son, turns up looking to connect after his adopted mother has died. However, Maddie doesn't exactly see nerdy and schlubby Arlo fitting in with her luxurious lifestyle. When her attempt to change Arlo backfires, Maddie finds that perhaps they both could use a little change in their lives.

"Giant Baby" is written and executive produced by Marco Pennette and is also executive produced by Kirstie Alley and Jason Weinberg. Larry W. Jones and Keith Cox serve as executive producers for TV Land.
