The series centers on three has-been entertainment industry veterans (Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, and Wendie Malick) from Los Angeles who find a more welcoming and less shallow and youth-obsessed community in Cleveland, Ohio, where, as seen in the pilot episode, their plane makes an emergency landing. They lease a home with a sassy caretaker (Betty White).

Cast and characters

Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick, Jane Leeves, and Betty White in August 2012

Main cast

  • Valerie Bertinelli as Melanie Hope Moretti, a writer and mother of college-age kids Will and Jenna. Depressed by her divorce, she boards a plane to Paris in the pilot episode to find love. However, when the plane makes an emergency landing in Cleveland, Melanie loves the city and its people so much that she decides to stay. Melanie discovers she is pregnant at the end of season 4 with Alec's baby; however, it turns out that she has brain cancer, which caused symptoms that affected her pregnancy test.[5][6]
  • Jane Leeves as Rejoyla "Joy" Scroggs, a never-married beautician, known as the "Eyebrow Queen of Beverly Hills", who counts among her clients stars such as Oprah Winfrey and Ryan Seacrest.[5] Joy's mother, who lives in England, is highly critical of her.[5][6] She had a son, Owen, when she was 15, but put him up for adoption.[7] In the first season finale, Joy receives a message from her son, but a tornado prevents her from contacting him.[8] Her son finally comes to visit her in Season 2, with disastrous results. At the end of season 3 a baby is left on the women's door-step. This baby is revealed in season 4 as Joy's grandson Wilbur. At the end of season 4, Joy's "Baby-Daddy" Simon shows up and wants to get back together with Joy.
  • Wendie Malick as Victoria Chase, a six-time-divorced, Emmy and Oscar Award-winning[9] soap opera star whose 27-year running show, Edge of Tomorrow, was recently canceled, leaving her to lament that her only career opportunities are playing Megan Fox's grandmother[5][6] and Melanie Griffith's mother[10] (in separate projects), and promoting adult underpants in Japan.[11] Her jobs in Cleveland have included high school drama teacher and reporter for Oh Hi, Ohio, a local news magazine program. In Season 4, she stars in a fictional Woody Allen movie, later marrying her co-star Emmett Lawson in prison. She has two daughters, Emmy (an actress) and Oscar (a journalist), and one son named Tony (a software developer). She is sworn enemies with Susan Lucci and has fought Melanie Griffith.
  • Betty White as Elka Ostrovsky, an elderly Polish caretaker whose judgmental retorts to the other women in the pilot reveal an astringent demeanor and allude to a storied life, including escaping from the Nazis, an active sex life, heavy drinking, and possible marijuana use.[6] It is revealed in the first season finale that her late husband had mob connections, and that the smell of marijuana came from the polish of his stolen goods. In the season 2 finale her "dead" husband surprisingly shows up at her wedding to Fred. White was only expected to have a guest role in the pilot episode, but her performance was so well-received that the producers decided to make her a regular.[12]

Development and production

Hot in Cleveland is TV Land's first attempt at a first-run scripted comedy (the channel has rerun other sitcoms since its debut) and is produced by Sean Hayes's Hazy Mills Productions and written by Suzanne Martin, who also serves as the showrunner.[1][22] It is shot with a multicamera setup in front of a live studio audience at the CBS Studio Center production studios.[23][24]

TV Land announced that the show was renewed for a second season on July 7, 2010. The 20-episode second season began production on November 1, 2010, and premiered January 19, 2011.[25][26][27] On February 28, 2011, TV Land renewed the show for a third season to consist of 22 episodes.[28] On March 21, 2011, TV Land announced that the third season order was increased to 24 episodes.[29] On January 12, 2012, TV Land renewed the series for a fourth season.[30]

Betty White was only meant to appear in the pilot of the show but was asked to stay on for the entire series.[31] She is reportedly earning $75,000 per episode for the series.[32]

Spin-off series and crossovers

On April 18, 2011, It was announced that Cedric the Entertainer would guest star in a season 2 episode as a minister that gets caught up in the girls' problems.[33] The episode served as a backdoor pilot for a spin-off series to star Cedric. The episode entitled "Bridezelka"[34] was written by Hot in Cleveland creator Suzanne Martin[35] and aired on August 24, 2011.[36]

The spin-off series centers on Reverend Boyce (Cedric) as he moves from Cleveland to St. Louis and has to balance his wild past as an R&B singer with the expectations of his congregation and his family.[37] On January 12, 2012, TV Land officially picked up the pilot to series, under the title Have Faith; with the first season set to have 12 episodes.[38] On March 11, 2012, it was announced that the series' title was changed from Have Faith to The Soul Man. The series premiered on June 20, 2012. In the March 27, 2014 premiere of Hot in Cleveland, Cedric the Entertainer reprises his role as Reverend Boyce; however, he doesn't appear to recognize the characters from his appearance in Season 2 of Hot in Cleveland. Betty White also reprises her role as Elka on The Soul Man.

In the second season of Hot in Cleveland, the show crossed over with daytime soap opera All My Children, in the two-part episode 'I Love Lucci'. Wendie Malick appeared on All My Children, where she was credited as Victoria Chase, while Susan Lucci appears as herself on Hot in Cleveland.

The fifth season of Hot in Cleveland featured a crossover with the television show Kirstie, which also aired on TV Land in 2013-14.[39]

Critical reception

The show has received positive reviews from critics. Wendie Malick and Betty White have both received extensive praise for their performances. The first season scored a 65 out of 100 on Metacritic.[40]

Comparisons with The Golden Girls

Hot in Cleveland has been referred to as a modern spin on the classic 1980s television series The Golden Girls in which actress Betty White played a starring role. Craig Berman of Today stated that the show is "as close as we're likely to get to a repeat of White's 1980s ensemble comedy hit, The Golden Girls ... [TV Land] the network known as the refuge for people looking to fall asleep to reruns of shows from their childhood has made its first scripted program a modern version of the classic sitcom premise."[41] Alessandra Stanley of The New York Times commented: "This is the first original scripted comedy on TV Land, a network that was founded on reruns. So not surprisingly, Hot in Cleveland is a pastiche of classics – a little bit Cheers and Frasier, a little bit The Golden Girls."[42] Michael Musto of The Village Voice wrote: "Wendy [sic] Malick is basically the modern-day Bea Arthur. Sweet-faced Valerie Bertinelli is the new Betty White. Been-around Jane Leeves is the nouveau Rue McClanahan. And witheringly sarcastic Golden Girl Betty White has turned into Estelle Getty."[43]

Awards and nominations

Betty White received a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for her role as Elka Ostrovsky, and went on to win the award. The cast received a nomination for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.

On May 17, 2011, TV Land entered the show in the race for the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards. The show submitted for Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for all four leading women, to reinforce the idea of an ensemble cast. The show also submitted in technical categories.[44]

On July 14, 2011, the show received two Primetime Emmy nominations, including Betty White getting nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series.[45]

In December 2011, Betty White received her second consecutive SAG nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series. She went on to win it.[46]

In 2012 Hot in Cleveland received 2 more Emmy nominations.
