TV LAND'S NEWEST SITCOM, "THE EXES," (WORKING TITLE) BEGINS PRODUCTION ON FIRST SEASON

Series By Mark Reisman Stars Television Comedy Vets Donald Faison, Wayne Knight, David Alan Basche, Kelly Stables and Kristen Johnston

Show Premieres Wednesday, November 30 At 10:30 PM ET/PT After Season Three Premiere Of "Hot in Cleveland"

Los Angeles, CA, July 21, 2011 - TV Land announced today that production starts this week on the network's new original sitcom, "The Exes" (working title). The series, which is written by Mark Reisman ("Frasier"), will debut on TV Land on Wednesday, November 30 at 10:30 pm ET/PT immediately following the season three premiere of "Hot in Cleveland." The program stars critically-acclaimed actors Donald Faison ("Scrubs"), Wayne Knight ("Seinfeld," "Hot in Cleveland"), David Alan Basche ("The Starter Wife"), Kelly Stables ("Two and a Half Men") and Emmy(R) Award-winner Kristen Johnston ("3rd Rock From The Sun").

In TV Land's latest sitcom, divorce attorney Holly (Johnston) introduces her newly-single client Stuart (Basche) to his new roommates - ladies' man Phil (Faison) and homebody Haskell (Knight), who share an apartment which Holly owns. Things start off a little shaky when the two bachelors have reservations about living with clingy Stuart, but Holly is right across the hall to help them avoid any catastrophes. To top it all off, Holly's assistant, Eden (Stables), doesn't exactly let her professionalism get in the way of prying into her boss's personal life.

"We are so excited to start production on this sitcom," said Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land. "The comedic talent in this show is a stellar addition to our network as we encourage viewers to 'laugh more.'" Keith Cox, executive vice president, development and original programming, TV Land, adds, "We couldn't ask for anything better than having Mark Reisman on board, a great team of writers and an amazing and hilarious group of actors. We hit the jackpot."

The show is executive produced by Reisman, along with Michael Hanel and Mindy Schultheis ("Reba," "Titus"), and Franco Bario is co-executive producer. Larry W. Jones and Keith Cox will serve as executive producers for TV Land.

The addition of "The Exes" to TV Land's original sitcom roster takes the network to a total of four scripted comedy series with several more in development. The network recently announced that it has picked up Fran Drescher's "Happily Divorced" for a second season with 12 new episodes slated to air in Spring 2012. TV Land's other hit sitcoms, "Hot in Cleveland" and "Retired at 35," have also been picked up for additional seasons.
