The ‘Cleveland’ ladies are back and hotter than ever! Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick and Betty White return for the fourth season of TV Land’s hit sitcom HOT IN CLEVELAND, taping in front of a live studio audience on Friday, August 31, and premiering Wednesday, November 28 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. TV bombshell Heather Locklear (DYNASTY; MELROSE PLACE) and Jay Harrington (SUMMERLAND) will both be in multi-episode arcs, and Regis Philbin returns for the season premiere. Additionally, Georgia Engel (THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW; PASSIONS) and Michael McMillian (TRUE BLOOD) will reprise their roles – Engel as Mamie, who has a love/hate friendship with Elka (White), and McMillian as Owen, the long-lost son that Joy (Leeves) gave up for adoption.
In last season finale’s shocking cliffhanger, Melanie (Bertinelli), Victoria (Malick), Joy and Elka discovered a baby on their doorstep, with no idea as to whose it is and why they left it there. Meanwhile, Elka had just gotten together with long-time hairdresser Pierre (Regis Philbin) after discovering that he was, in fact, NOT gay, as she had long suspected. And in the season premiere, it is revealed that Pierre has an unspoken connection with the new baby.
Locklear will debut as Chloe Summerlin, a former Miss Ohio who is now the founder and owner of Cleveland’s number one public relations agency, which she runs with her ex-husband, Alec (Harrington). Melanie gets a job at the PR firm and sees sparks fly with Alec, not knowing that he’s the ex of her no-nonsense boss.
“Over the past three seasons, we have seen some astounding guest stars stop by the show,” said Larry W. Jones, president of TV Land. “This season is sure to please the fans as even more storylines develop and new characters emerge. We’ve got an irresistible combination on our hands with our four favorite Clevelanders, a baby and Heather Locklear – it’s sitcom magic.”
