TV LAND INKS DEAL WITH TELEVISION, STAGE AND FILM STAR GEORGE SEGAL TO STAR IN SITCOM PILOT "RETIRED AT 35"

Oscar-Nominated Star To Portray Retired And Free-wheeling Dad

New York, NY, November 16, 2009 � TV Land announced today that George Segal � esteemed comedy and drama actor on TV, stage and film - has been tapped to star in the network's sitcom pilot "Retired at 35." The sitcom, which was previously announced in October along with comedy pilot "Hot in Cleveland," is TV Land's first foray into scripted comedy series and is being developed for TV Land PRIME.

"Retired at 35" follows a successful businessman who decides to leave the rat race of New York City behind and move into his parents' Florida retirement home to reconnect with them, reevaluate his life and live the dream of retirement that so many are working towards. Segal will play the role of the father, who bonds with his son while showing him the glories of his newfound and liberated lifestyle.

Recently seen on the popular HBO series "Entourage," and in ABC's "Pushing Daisies," Segal starred for seven seasons as Jack Gallo in the NBC ensemble comedy "Just Shoot Me." On the big screen, he was an Oscar-nominee for "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" and also starred in "A Touch of Class," "The Owl and The Pussycat" with Barbra Streisand and "Fun with Dick and Jane" with Jane Fonda. He also starred on Broadway in "Art," "Rattle of a Simple Man" and "Gideon."

Chris Case ("Reba," "Spin City") is the writer for "Retired at 35" and Michael Hanel and Mindy Schultheis ("Rita Rocks," "Reba," "Titus") are the executive producers.

"Retired at 35" and "Hot in Cleveland" are in development for 2010 for TV Land PRIME along with the premieres of "Everybody Loves Raymond" and the reality series "High School Reunion," "First Love, Second Chance" and "She's Got the Look." TV Land PRIME is the network's primetime programming block designed to appeal to the attitudes, life stage and interests of people in their 40s.
