Rita Moreno has been tapped to co-star in a pilot for NBC called Old Soul!

According to Deadline, Moreno will star opposite Natasha Lyonne from Orange is the New Black in this comedy co-created by the hilarious Amy Poehler.

Old Soul is about former wild child Nadia (played by Lyonne) who runs a business caring for the elderly and is trying to figure out exactly where she fits in among her friends.

The 2013 SAG Lifetime Achievement Award honoree is set to play a character named Rita -- "a sexy old, flamboyant, larger-than-life Broadway vet who has been happily married to her writing partner/husband for over 50 years" -- who is one of Nadia's clients.

A release date has yet to be announced, but we can't wait to see Moreno and Lyonne in action!
