Ashley Tisdale and George Wendt to co-star in new sitcom

Ashley Tisdale and George Wendt have been tapped to co-star in a new sitcom created by the team behind Will & Grace.

The High School Musical star and former Cheers actor have been cast in David Kohan and Max Mutchnick's untitled workplace comedy, according to Deadline.com.

The show centers around a group of kids who were in different cliques in high school but all work together in a barbershop as adults.

If the pilot is picked up, it will mark Tisdale's first series role since the cheerleading comedy Hellcats was canceled after just one season in 2011.

Wendt has been guest starring in various TV roles since Cheers ended in 1993, most recently reuniting with his former co-star Kirstie Alley on her new self-titled sitcom in February (14).
