“We wanted to give our loyal ‘Hot in Cleveland’ fans an early holiday treat,” states Larry W. Jones, president of TV Land. “We think they will really enjoy hearing from the ladies about their experience working together and their immediate family-like chemistry on screen and off with this exclusive look at the magic behind-the-scenes.”
“Hot in Cleveland” revolves around three fabulous best friends from Los Angeles – novelist Melanie Moretti (Valerie Bertinelli), eye-brow archer to the stars Joy Scroggs (Jane Leeves) and former soap star Victoria Chase (Wendie Malick) – who find their lives changed forever when their plane, headed for Paris, makes an unexpected landing. When the friends discover that life is better for them since they are hot in Cleveland, they decide to stay. Starting over together, they rent a house that happens to come with a very opinionated caretaker (Betty White).
