CTD acquired the exclusive broadcast domestic distribution rights for HOT IN CLEVELAND from TV Land in September 2011.

The cast of HOT IN CLEVELAND has been honored with numerous awards since its initial premiere including a People's Choice Award for Favorite Cable TV Comedy, a Gracie Award for Outstanding Comedy Series and a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Individual Episode.

White was also nominated for an Emmy(R) Award in 2011 for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for the same role.

HOT IN CLEVELAND revolves around three fabulous best friends from LA - 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 in Cleveland, they decide to stay. Starting over together, they rent a house that happens to come with a very opinionated caretaker, Elka Ostrovsky (White).
