'Hot in Cleveland' marks Bertinelli's first foray into TV sitcoms since 'One Day at a Time' left in air in 1984 and her first regular TV gig since 'Touched by an Angel' ended its run in 2003. Leeves, of course, starred as Daphne Moon for the 11-year run of 'Frasier.' And Malick, one of TV's busiest actors, appeared on the last few 'Frasier' seasons and starred on 'Just Shoot Me.'

Executive producing 'Hot in Cleveland' is Emmy-winning actor Sean Hayes (currently bound for the Broadway revival of 'Promises, Promises') and Todd Milliner of Hayes' Hazy Mills Productions, and Suzanne Martin, who inked the pilot. The show is also TV Land's first original sitcom.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, one other comedy pilot could be picked up by TV Land: 'Retired at 35,' starring George Segal (Malick's 'Just Shoot Me' costar) and Johnathan McClain.
