LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Former "Everybody Loves Raymond" co-stars Doris Roberts and Patricia Heaton will reunite on-screen in an episode of Heaton's U.S. sitcom "The Middle," ABC said.

The pair played bickering mother- and daughter-in-law Marie and Debra Barone on "Raymond" for nine seasons.

ABC said Roberts is to guest star on Wednesday's edition of "The Middle" as Ms. Rinsky, the tough third-grade teacher of Heaton's character's youngest child, Brick.
