Encore episode tonight 10/9C on TV Land
“Hot in Cleveland” begins production today on its fifth season, which will premiere in spring 2014! Season five gets even hotter with amazing guest stars including Emmy®-nominated Max Greenfield from ‘New Girl’, “The Office’s” Angela Kinsey, Kirstie Alley from TV Land’s new original sitcom “Kirstie,” returning guest stars Jennifer Love Hewitt, Craig Ferguson and more, as ‘Hot in Cleveland' nears 100 episodes.
Guest star Max Greenfield, well-known as the hilariously obnoxious Schmidt on “New Girl,” will play a charming con man who poses as a pet adoption consultant, while Angela Kinsey will portray an Admissions Counselor for a pre-school that Joy (Jane Leeves) wants her grandson Wilbur to attend. “Hot in Cleveland” is also welcoming back some favorites from past seasons, including Jennifer Love Hewitt (“The Client List”); Craig Ferguson (“The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”); John Mahoney (“Frasier”); Michael McMillian (“True Blood”); Jay Harrington (“Better Off Ted”); Dave Foley (“The Kids in the Hall”); and Georgia Engel (“The Mary Tyler Moore Show”) as Elka’s (Betty White) BFF, Mamie Sue.
When the fifth season begins, Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli) will deal with the aftermath of the shocking news she received in the season four finale: she’s pregnant. The season will have some more surprises in store for Melanie as she starts to date one of her favorite singers. However, when the relationship goes south and he catches her in a lie, she gets “Taylor Swift-ed” and becomes the target of his latest hit song. This season will also include a crossover between “Hot in Cleveland” and “Kirstie,” TV Land’s newest original sitcom! The ladies travel to New York City, and in order to improve her “Oscar karma,” Victoria (Wendie Malick) confesses an old betrayal to her ex-roommate, Broadway star Maddie Banks (Kirstie Alley).
“100 episodes is a huge accomplishment for any TV show,” said Larry W. Jones, President, TV Land. “We’re so proud of the cast and crew, and we’re looking forward to another fantastic season with new twists and turns in every episode.”
