This must-see event will lead into the brand new seasons of "The Exes" and "The Soul Man."

Boldly going where few sitcoms have gone before, the special live episode of "Hot in Cleveland" will guest star William Shatner ("Star Trek"), Brian Baumgartner ("The Office"), Danny Pudi ("Community"), Georgia Engel ("The Mary Tyler Moore Show") and Shirley Jones ("The Partridge Family").

The episode by the numbers:

From 8-10pm ET Wednesday night, fans can tweet with the hashtag #BreakALeg and #HOTLive to send well-wishes to the cast that will run on TV Land.

The LIVE season premiere will pick up where the finale left off - Joy (Leeves) discovers what Elka (White) and Mamie (Engel) have been up to, and it's illegal and dangerous and they are in way over their heads, cutting into the business of some very scary locals. Melanie (Bertinelli), Victoria (Malick) and Joy try to step in to "help." There will be mobsters, mistaken identities, special guest stars, and twists and turns - all LIVE, when anything can happen.

Immediately following "Hot in Cleveland" is "The Exes" at 10:30pm ET/PT. In the sexy season premiere of "The Exes," Phil (Donald Faison), Haskell (Wayne Knight) and Stuart (David Alan Basche) find Holly's (Kristen Johnston) "female massager," only to accidentally break it, causing more trouble than they ever anticipated. Now, Holly's potentially on the hook for an apartment mishap and Eden (Kelly Stables) is forced to prep her for the impending investigation by the board.

Then, in "The Soul Man" at 11pm ET/PT, Boyce Ballentine (Cedric "The Entertainer") and his wife Lolli (Niecy Nash) are still adjusting to their new lives in St. Louis as things take a turn for the worse when a female doctor played by guest star Kim Wayans gives Boyce the "oh so dreaded" prostate exam. The episode ends with a new special featurette - a two-minute Q&A with Cedric and the studio audience!

It all starts LIVE on Wednesday, June 19th at 10pm ET on TV Land - don't miss it!!
