TV LAND ANNOUNCES SUMMER PREMIERE DATES FOR NEW ORIGINAL COMEDY "JENNIFER FALLS," A SPECIAL ANIMATED EPISODE OF "HOT IN CLEVELAND" AND RETURNING FAVORITE "THE EXES"
New York, NY - March 26, 2014 - TV Land is launching a summer of star-studded programming beginning Wednesday, June 4th at 10:30pm ET/PT, with the all-new single-camera comedy "Jennifer Falls," starring Jaime Pressly, Jessica Walter, Ethan Suplee and Missi Pyle; "Hot in Cleveland" starring Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick and Betty White, with an animated episode airing August 6th; and "The Exes" featuring Donald Faison, Wayne Knight, David Alan Basche, Kelly Stables and Kristen Johnston, returning August 13th.
Check out the schedule below:
Kicking off the summer season will be "Jennifer Falls," the network's brand new original comedy, premiering Wednesday, June 4th at 10:30pm ET/PT. The first-ever single camera comedy for TV Land revolves around Jennifer Doyle (Pressly), a former high-powered executive who has fallen and hit every bump on the way down to rock bottom. With her teenage daughter (Dylan Gelula) in tow, Jennifer moves back in with her mother (Walter) and takes a job in the bar owned by her meek brother (Suplee) and passive-aggressive sister-in-law (Nora Kirkpatrick) as a last resort. There, she reunites with her former best friend (Pyle) who turns out to be holding quite a grudge. But every cloud has a silver lining: there's nowhere to go but up.
Then, on Wednesday, August 6th at 10pm ET/PT, TV Land is in rare form with an animated episode of "Hot in Cleveland." In the aptly titled "The Animated Episode," the "hot" women - Melanie (Bertinelli), Joy (Leeves), Victoria (Malick) and Elka (White) - embark on an around-the-world adventure as cartoon characters, darting through pop culture hits, including scenes with homages to "Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory," "The Walking Dead" and "Frankenstein." "Hot in Cleveland" premieres tonight, March 26th, with a LIVE episode and will continue to air throughout the summer.
Finally, fan favorite "The Exes" returns on Wednesday, August 13th at 10:30pm ET/PT. Last season, Phil (Faison) and Eden (Stables) dated and broke up, Stuart's (Basche) sister Nicki (recurring guest star Leah Remini) came to town and decided to stay - much to the delight of a smitten Haskell (Knight) - and Holly (Johnston), unfortunately, saw a turbulent love life. Though chaos reigns supreme in their lives, the group is able to rely on their own little modern family.
