LOS ANGELES, March 15 (UPI) -- TV Land says it will honor comedians Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner, as well as the cast of "Everybody Loves Raymond" at its awards ceremony in California.

Also to be recognized at the event will be "Charlie's Angels" stars Cheryl Ladd and Jaclyn Smith, and "Glee" cast members Jane Lynch, Dianna Agron, Jayma Mays, Jessalyn Gilsig and Kevin McHale, the network announced Monday.

The 8th annual TV Land Awards gala is scheduled to be taped April 17 on the Sony Lot in Culver City, Calif. The show is to premiere April 25.

"The entire cast of 'Everybody Loves Raymond' (including Ray Romano, Patricia Heaton, Doris Roberts and Brad Garrett) will reunite for the first time since the death of fellow cast member Peter Boyle to receive the Impact Award at this year's show," TV Land said in a news release. Boyle died in 2006 at the age of 71.

The sitcom ran on CBS for nine seasons and is to join the TV Land lineup Thursday.

This year's Future Classic Award will be bestowed upon Fox's music-themed hit, "Glee" and stars of the 1970s TV phenomenon "Charlie's Angels" will be on hand to receive the Pop Culture Award and to pay tribute to cast member Farrah Fawcett, who died of cancer last June.
