HEATHER LOCKLEAR, REGIS PHILBIN, JAY HARRINGTON, GEORGIA ENGEL AND MICHAEL MCMILLIAN TO APPEAR ON SEASON FOUR OF TV LAND'S "HOT IN CLEVELAND"

Production Begins August 27 With Season Premiere Set For Wednesday, November 28 At 10PM ET/PT

August 10, 2012 - Los Angeles, CA - The 'Cleveland' ladies are back and hotter than ever! Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick and Betty White return for the fourth season of TV Land's hit sitcom "Hot in Cleveland," taping in front of a live studio audience on Friday, August 31, and premiering Wednesday, November 28 at 10pm ET/PT. TV bombshell Heather Locklear ("Dynasty," "Melrose Place," "Spin City") and Jay Harrington ("Better Off Ted") will both be in multi-episode arcs, and Regis Philbin returns for the season premiere. Additionally, Georgia Engel ("The Mary Tyler Moore Show") and Michael McMillian ("True Blood") will reprise their roles - Engel as Mamie, who has a love/hate friendship with Elka (White), and McMillian as Owen, the long-lost son that Joy (Leeves) gave up for adoption.

In last season finale's shocking cliffhanger, Melanie (Bertinelli), Victoria (Malick), Joy and Elka discovered a baby on their doorstep, with no idea as to whose it is and why they left it there. Meanwhile, Elka had just gotten together with long-time hairdresser Pierre (Regis Philbin) after discovering that he was, in fact, NOT gay, as she had long suspected. And in the season premiere, it is revealed that Pierre has an unspoken connection with the new baby.

Locklear will debut as Chloe Summerlin, a former Miss Ohio who is now the founder and owner of Cleveland's number one public relations agency, which she runs with her ex-husband, Alec (Harrington). Melanie gets a job at the PR firm and sees sparks fly with Alec, not knowing that he's the ex of her no-nonsense boss.

"Over the past three seasons, we have seen some astounding guest stars stop by the show," said Larry W. Jones, president of TV Land. "This season is sure to please the fans as even more storylines develop and new characters emerge. We've got an irresistible combination on our hands with our four favorite Clevelanders, a baby and Heather Locklear - it's sitcom magic."

Since its debut, "Hot in Cleveland" has won several awards and accolades, including a recent Gracie Award for Outstanding Comedy Series and a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Individual Episode. In addition, Betty White won her second consecutive Screen Actors Guild Award(R) for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series for her role as Elka, and was nominated for an Emmy(R) Award in 2011 for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. The entire cast was also nominated in 2011 for a SAG Award(R) for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.

The series has also been sold into syndication in more than 65% of the US Market by CBS Television Distribution for a 2014 debut.

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

"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, and Larry W. Jones and Keith Cox are executive producers for TV Land. "Hot in Cleveland" is filmed in front of a live studio audience and is currently seen around the world in over 165 countries.
