HOT IN CLEVELAND got off to a sizzling start when it premiered last week on TV Land in the US. Attracting 4.75 million viewers, the critically-acclaimed debut was the most-watched telecast in the network's history.
The 10-part series revolves around three fabulous best friends from LA - novelist Melanie Moretti (Bertinelli), eye-brow archer to the stars Joy Scroggs (Leeves) and former soap star Victoria Chase (Malick) - who find their lives changed forever when their plane, headed for Paris, makes an unexpected landing in Cleveland.
When the friends discover that their personal currency has risen and that they are actually "hot" in Cleveland, they decide to stay. Starting over, they rent a house that happens to come with a very feisty caretaker, Elka Ostrovsky (White).
