TV LAND ORDERS FIFTH SEASON OF HIT SITCOM "HOT IN CLEVELAND" STARRING VALERIE BERTINELLI, JANE LEEVES, WENDIE MALICK AND BETTY WHITE

Pick-Up Brings Series Past 100 Episode Mark

New York, NY - March 20, 2013 - TV Land has renewed "Hot in Cleveland" for a fifth season, it was announced today by Larry W. Jones, President, TV Land. The 24-episode order brings the series to a total of 104 episodes. This past January, CBS Television Distribution announced that it has sold "Hot in Cleveland" to TV stations in 92% of the United States for a September 2014 launch. The series stars Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick and Betty White.

"This is an incredible milestone for the show and for TV Land," said Jones. "To have our first scripted sitcom make it to the syndication level is a huge accomplishment. We have a brilliant creative team both in front of and behind the camera. We are so proud to be on this exciting ride with them."

Series to date, "Hot in Cleveland" has averaged 2.8 million total viewers (Nielsen: Live+7, 68 premiere telecasts, 6/16/10-2/13/13). New episodes return on Wednesday, June 19th at 10pm ET with a LIVE telecast of the premiere episode. The fifth season will start shooting this Fall.

In addition to garnering unprecedented ratings for TV Land, "Hot in Cleveland" has been honored with numerous awards and accolades. Betty White recently received her third Screen Actors Guild Award(R) nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series for her performance as Elka Ostrovsky - an award she won two years in a row for the same role. Since its initial premiere, the show has received a People's Choice Award for Favorite Cable TV Comedy, a Gracie Award for Outstanding Comedy Series and a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Individual Episode. The series was also awarded a Creative Arts Emmy(R) Award for Outstanding Art Direction for a Multi-Camera Series (Michael Andrew Hynes and Maralee Zediker). Additionally, White was also nominated for an Emmy(R) Award in 2011 for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for the same role.

"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 (White).

Filmed in front of a live 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.
