"Hot in Cleveland" revolves around three fabulous best friends from Los Angeles - novelist Melanie Moretti, eye-brow archer to the stars Joy Scroggs and former soap star Victoria Chase - who find their lives changed forever when their plane, headed for Paris, makes an unexpected landing. When the friends discover that life is better for them since they are hot in Cleveland, they decide to stay. Starting over together, they rent a house that happens to come with a very opinionated caretaker.

Filmed in front of a live studio audience, "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. Lynda Obst also serves as executive producer.

Earlier this year, the show was distributed by Endemol in Australia, Canada, Germany, Turkey and the UK among others.

Season one of "Hot in Cleveland" will be available on DVD on January 11, 2011 just in time to relive all ten hilarious episodes from the first season before the second season kicks off. The two-disc set is loaded with uproarious bonus material including: the original full-length pilot, bloopers, wardrobe featurette, we love our age featurette, a set tour, Victoria's full-length Japanese "Lady Pants" commercial and more.
