Peacock picks Cannon for ‘Three Sisters’

Thesp to be mother to Langer, Lewis, LaNasa

NBC’s “Three Sisters” has found its mom: Dyan Cannon.

Oscar-nominated thesp, seen most recently as a recurring guest star on “Ally McBeal,” has joined the cast of the NBC midseason laffer. She’ll play Honey Bernstein-Flynn, a sexy, free-spirited mother who has an unconventional, open and honest relationship with her three grown daughters.

The three sisters will be played by A.J. Langer (“It’s Like, You Know…”), Vicki Lewis (“NewsRadio”) and Katherine LaNasa (“Schizopolis”).

Helmer-thesp Peter Bonerz (“The Bob Newhart Show”) and David Alan Basche (“Oh Grow Up”) also star.

Skein is from NBC Studios and exec producers DeAnn Heline and Eileen Heisler, who both worked on “Ellen,” “Roseanne” and “Murphy Brown.”

Cannon has been a frequent guest star on “Ally,” playing Judge Jennifer “Whipper” Cone. Her role on “Three Sisters” is not expected to prevent her from making continued appearances on “Ally.”

Her supporting role as Alice in the 1969 pic “Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice” earned Canon her Oscar nom. She snagged another nom in 1976 for producing, directing and co-editing the 42-minute pic “Number One,” making her the first femme to be nominated for an Oscar for both onscreen and behind-the-camera work.

Canon earned another supporting-actress Oscar nom for the 1978 Warren Beatty starrer “Heaven Can Wait.” Other credits include “8 Heads in a Duffel Bag,” “That Darn Cat,” “Caddyshack II” and “Deathtrap.”

Deal was brokered by Seven Summits Management and attorney Mike Sherman.
