TV Land better invest in a really good bleep button: The saucy women of Hot in Cleveland will go live in an episode set for next summer. The "super-sized" live episode will launch Hot in Cleveland's summer season on Wednesday, June 19 at 10/9c.
Hot in Cleveland, which stars Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick and Betty White, already tapes in front of a live studio, but this episode represents the first time the show has done a live episode on air.
"This is going to be big," says TV Land president Larry W. Jones. "It's exhilarating because you just never know what might happen. We've got true sitcom veterans with the cast of Hot in Cleveland and I can't wait to see what unfolds."
Hot in Cleveland is currently shooting its fourth season. New episodes of the sitcom return to TV Land on Wednesday, November 28 at 10/9c.
Hot in Cleveland's producers are still determining how long the "super-size" live episode will be, but confirm that it will be longer than a traditional 22-minute episode. The live show will tape on Hot in Cleveland's normal stage at CBS Studio Center in Studio City, Calif. Hot in Cleveland won't perform a second live episode for the West Coast; instead, the live episode will repeat on tape for the Pacific Time zone.
