TV LAND PICKS UP ORIGINAL SITCOM "THE EXES" FOR FOURTH SEASON
New York, NY - February 3, 2014 - TV Land has picked up its hit original series "The Exes" for a 12-episode fourth season, it was announced today by TV Land President, Larry W. Jones. The series stars critically-acclaimed actors, Donald Faison ("Scrubs"), Wayne Knight ("Seinfeld"), David Alan Basche ("The Starter Wife"), Kelly Stables ("Two and a Half Men") and Kristen Johnston ("3rd Rock From The Sun"), with Leah Remini ("The King of Queens") featured in several of the episodes in season three. The show currently airs on TV Land every Wednesday at 10pm ET/PT with the season finale scheduled for February 26. Season four will debut this summer.
"From the moment we read the very first script for 'The Exes,' we fell in love," said Jones. "This series has a comedy ensemble that's a force to be reckoned with, and it just keeps getting better and better."
"The Exes" revolves around the unlikely trio of Phil (Faison), Haskell (Knight) and Stuart (Basche), three roommates and divorcés who have finally found bromance after initially being forced to live together by their divorce attorney and landlord, Holly (Johnston). Most recently, Leah Remini ("The King of Queens") joined the sitcom in a recurring role, appearing in seven of the 10 episodes this season as Nicki, a tough talking, no-nonsense woman from Staten Island. After discovering that her husband had an affair, she retreats to Manhattan, seeking comfort from her brother Stuart and integrating herself into the lives of his friends.
