Entertainment news website TMZ.com report it's no coincidence the actresses got the same great deal--they share the same lawyer.
In the new show, Flockhart will play a right-wing talk show host who is forced to take charge of a family business with her sister and her brothers after the death of their father.
The show is likely to debut alongside hit dramas Lost, Boston Legal and Desperate Housewives on ABC later this year.
Flockhart ended her run as neurotic lawyer Ally McBeal after five years in 2002. The hit show won four Golden Globes. Griffith played Brenda Chenowith in funeral home series Six Feet Under from 2001 until the show ended last year.
