Betty White also appears in the show's pilot episode. The series is scheduled to start airing in June.
"Hot in Cleveland" is written by Emmy Award-winning Suzanne Martin, whose credits include "Frasier" and "Ellen." It is produced by Emmy Award-winner Sean Hayes, a former co-star of "Will & Grace," and Todd Milliner of Hazy Mills Productions.
"We are thrilled that 'Hot in Cleveland' is TV Land's first original sit-com," Larry W. Jones, president of TV Land, said in a statement Monday. "The talented cast has amazing chemistry and delivers the clever script from a renowned sit-com writer with hilarity and sincerity. This show has enormous potential and we are so excited to be a part of it."
The network describes the series as being about "three fabulous, L.A. women of a certain age and best friends."
"Their lives are changed forever when their plane -- headed for Paris -- unexpectedly lands in Cleveland and they soon rediscover themselves in this new 'promised land,'" TV Land said in a news release. "Loving their new home, the women find themselves living under one roof and battling the sassy caretaker of the property they have rented, played by Betty White."
