Cheers stars Rhea Perlman and Kirstie Alley have teamed up again to record a TV pilot.

They pledged to reunite for another sitcom when Cheers ended in 1993, it may have taken them 20 years, but long time friends Perlman and Alley have finally done it.

Alley and Perlman will play best friends in a new sitcom Giant Baby. The two stars have said that working together again is simply “the best”.

Alley says, "We were planning this when we were doing Cheers. We said, 'When Cheers isn't on the air we'll do a show together.'"
