Hot in ClevelandFour TV vets have just inked deals to star in the new TV Land comedy pilot 'Hot in Cleveland.' Among those joining the show are Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick and 'Frasier''s Jane Leeves as three best friends from Los Angeles who get trapped in Cleveland, then decide to stay when they realize the locals think they're hot. Also on board is Emmy winner Betty White, who will play the trio's "grumpy" and "opinionated" neighbor (how very Sophia Petrillo of her). In the meantime, this marks the second pilot order from the network, after 'Retired at 35,' starring George Segal. No word yet on a premiere date.
