PRODUCTION TO BEGIN MAY 10 ON TV LAND'S FIRST ORIGINAL SITCOM "HOT IN CLEVELAND" STARRING VALERIE BERTINELLI, JANE LEEVES, WENDIE MALICK AND BETTY WHITE

Series Premieres on TV Land on June 16

New York, NY, May 6, 2010 - TV Land announced today that production on the network's first original sitcom, "Hot in Cleveland" starring Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick and Betty White will begin on Monday, May 10. The 10 episode series premieres June 16 at 10pm on TV Land. The sitcom is TV Land's first foray into scripted comedy series and is a TV Land PRIME presentation. "Hot in Cleveland" is executive produced by Emmy(R) Award-winner Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner of Hazy Mills Productions and is helmed by Emmy(R) Award-winning Suzanne Martin ("Frasier," "Ellen") serving as executive producer, show runner and writer.

"Hot In Cleveland" revolves around three fabulous best friends from LA - novelist Melanie Moretti (Bertinelli), eye-brow archer to the stars Joy Scroggs (Leeves) and former soap star Victoria Chase (Malick) - who find their lives changed forever when their plane, headed for Paris, makes an unexpected landing. When the friends discover that they are hot in Cleveland, they decide to stay. Starting over, they rent a house that happens to come with a very feisty caretaker (White).

About the "Hot in Cleveland" cast:

Popular actress Valerie Bertinelli is best-remembered for her role as "Barbara Jean Cooper" on the beloved Norman Lear sitcom "One Day At A Time." She also starred in "Touched By An Angel" for the show's final two seasons. More recently, Bertinelli became a spokesperson for the Jenny Craig weight-loss program and in 2008 she released the autobiography "Losing It: And Gaining My Life Back One Pound At A Time," which discussed her struggles with weight loss. In November 2009, Bertinelli released a fitness DVD called "Losing It and Keeping Fit" and also wrote a follow-up book called "Finding It: And Satisfying My Hunger for Life without Opening the Fridge."

Jane Leeves starred for 11 seasons in the Emmy(R) Award-winning NBC comedy "Frasier" and was also nominated for an Emmy(R) as Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her portrayal as Daphne Moon. More recently, Leeves lent her voice to The Disney Channel's "Phineas and Ferb" and guest-starred in USA Network's "The Starter Wife." Leeves is also known to audiences for playing the memorable character "Marla Penney" in several episodes of "Seinfield."

Wendie Malick was nominated for two Emmy Awards(R) and won a Golden Globe(R) for her role as the hilarious and beautiful fashion editor Nina Van Horn in the NBC ensemble comedy "Just Shoot Me." She appeared as Judith Tupper Stone in the early 1990s in the HBO comedy "Dream On," for which she won four CableACE Awards as Best Actress in a Comedy Series. Malick's work has included roles in the movies "The American President," "Scrooged" and "Bugsy."

One of television's most beloved and talented actresses whose career has spanned over 50 years, Emmy Award(R)-winning actress Betty White is best known for her role in the classic sitcom "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and the beloved series "The Golden Girls." White won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series for the first season of "The Golden Girls" and was nominated every year of the show's run. The series ran from 1985 to 1992 on NBC. White has also guest-starred on a number of television programs including "Ally McBeal," �The Ellen Show," "That 70s Show" and won an Emmy(R) in 1996 for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series, appearing as herself on a memorable episode of "The John Laroquette Show." White had a recurring role in ABC's "Boston Legal" from 2005 to 2008 as the calculating, blackmailing gossip-monger Catherine Piper, a role she originally portrayed as a guest star on "The Practice" in 2004. Most recently, White appeared in the 2009 motion picture, "The Proposal" with Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. In January 2010, White was honored with the Screen Actors Guild(R) Achievement Award.

"Hot in Cleveland" is part of TV Land's foray into scripted comedy series and is one of two sitcoms for the network. The cast of the network's other sitcom, the multi-camera "Retired at 35" was announced with legendary actor George Segal, Johnathan McClain, "Saturday Night Live" alum Casey Wilson and acting veterans Jessica Walter and Christine Ebersole landing starring roles. "Retired at 35" follows a successful businessman (McClain) who decides to chuck the New York City rat race... and retires to Florida, three decades ahead of time! He ends up moving into his parents' Florida condominium, joining his pop (Segal) in a brand new world of sunshine and fun, from slow-moving softball games to really early dinners. Mom (Walter) and a cast of characters look on skeptically as father and son bond again, new-found buddies enjoying the glories of total irresponsibility.
