Network Picks Up 10 Episodes To Premiere First Quarter 2011

New York, NY, April 20, 2010 - TV Land announced today that it has greenlit 10 episodes of the original sitcom "Retired At 35" starring esteemed comedy and drama actor George Segal. The sitcom is a TV Land PRIME original production and is the network's second venture into scripted comedy series along with "Hot in Cleveland," which premieres on June 16, 2010. Chris Case ("Reba," "Spin City") is the writer for "Retired at 35" and serves as an executive producer. Michael Hanel and Mindy Schultheis ("Rita Rocks," "Reba," "Titus") are also executive producers.

"It is so exciting for us to announce TV Land's second original sitcom," states Larry W. Jones. "We are thrilled to work with this very talented and funny cast along with a great team of writers and producers. TV Land is committed to bringing funny yet meaningful shows to our audience and "Retired at 35" is the perfect example of that strategy."

In the pilot episode of "Retired at 35", David (McClain), a successful young businessman decides to leave the rat race of New York City behind and move into his parents' (Segal and Walter) Florida retirement home to reconnect with them, re-evaluate his life and live the dream of retirement that so many are working toward. While in Florida, David reunites with his best friend Brandon, (McDermitt) and realizes that his former crush Jessica (Bathe) is still as beautiful and elusive as ever. Living close by is David's sister, Amy (Wilson) who has finally found a boyfriend Paul (Champagne). Other characters include Alan's friend, Richard (Wyner) and David's boss, Donald (Burns).

The "Retired at 35" pick-up comes on the heels of greenlighting TV Land's first original sitcom, "Hot in Cleveland," a series that revolves around three fabulous, LA women of a certain age and best friends (Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and Wendie Malick). Headed for a vacation in Paris, their plane makes an emergency landing in Cleveland where they find themselves in a new "promised land." Loving their new home, they find themselves living under one roof and battling the sassy caretaker of the property they have rented, played by Betty White.

"Hot in Cleveland" is the network's first original sitcom. It premieres on June 16 2010. Other TV Land original programming includes network franchise's "High School Reunion," "She's Got the Look," and "How'd You Get so Rich?" which makes its second season debut on May 5, 2010.

Recently seen on the popular HBO series "Entourage," and in ABC's "Pushing Daisies," Segal starred for seven seasons as Jack Gallo in the NBC ensemble comedy "Just Shoot Me." On the big screen, he was an Oscar-nominee for "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" and also starred in "A Touch of Class," "The Owl and The Pussycat" with Barbra Streisand and "Fun with Dick and Jane" with Jane Fonda. He also starred on Broadway in "Art," "Rattle of a Simple Man" and "Gideon."
