The 'Retired at 35' Cast Previews Their New Show (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jan 19th 2011 6:15PM
Retired at 35Once a place to catch reruns of your favorite classics, TV Land is now asserting itself as a network for original programming. They're following the first season success of 'Hot In Cleveland' with another sitcom shot in front of a studio audience, 'Retired at 35' (premieres Wed., Jan. 19, 10:30PM ET).

'Retired' follows David Robbins (Johnathan McClain), a young businessman who decides he'd much rather retire than work his way further up the corporate ladder. So he moves to Florida to crash with his dad (George Segal) and mom (Jessica Walter), in turn shaking things up for them as well.

I visited the set to hear all about the very esteemed cast, to bring the hilarious Segal up to speed on modern technology and the Internet ("Wait a second -- this whole thing is being conducted on a telephone?") and to hear why retiring at 35 isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Casey Wilson ('Saturday Night Live'), Jessica Walter ('Arrested Development') and Tony winner Christine Ebersole co-star as Segal's character's daughter, ex-wife and potential love interest, respectively.

'Hot in Cleveland,' starring Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and Wendie Malick as best friends from Los Angeles whose flight to Paris makes an unscheduled landing in Ohio, has gotten a 10-episode order from TV Land. The 40-something ladies, who are all at a crossroads in their lives, end up staying when they discover how glamorous the Cleveland citizenry finds them.

The legendary Betty White plays the brassy, one-liner-prone owner of the property that the ladies rent. The show will begin airing this June.

TV Land taps television's vintage hottie vault for new sitcom

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 12th 2010 3:30PM

TV Land has officially jumped into the cable sitcom party, even if they showed up just as the hangovers are starting to set in. And for their first venture, they have enlisted the help of some of television's tastiest babes.

Valerie Bertinelli (One Day at a Time), Jane Leeves (Frasier), Wendy Malick (Just Shoot Me) and Betty White (The Golden Girls) have been brought on board to star in Hot for Cleveland, the second sitcom project approved by the cable network. That's right, Betty White is a TV hottie. I will fight ANYONE who makes fun of me for it.

The other show commissioned by TV Land is Retired at 35, and has lined up actor George Segal, Christine Ebersole and SNL alum Casey Wilson, her first role since she was abruptly pumped from the sketch show. Given TV Land's horrible choices in making their own reality shows, do these even have a chance of being a hit?

George Segal Heads to TV Land's 'Retired at 35'

George SegalAt an age when many actors would be thinking about slowing down, George Segal continues to set the bar high in both TV and film. The 'Just Shoot Me' alum is returning to the small screen in a starring role on TV Land's half-hour pilot, 'Retired at 35.'

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story follows a successful young businessman who decides to leave the New York fast lane and move into his father's Florida retirement home. Don't look for Segal's character, the father, to be sitting around playing Canasta, though. He'll play a former insurance executive who's all about partying and having fun.

George Segal joins the cast of Entourage

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 2nd 2009 6:06PM
EntourageDid you like Just Shoot Me? It was one of those shows I didn't really watch when it was on NBC but later caught in syndicated reruns, and it was really an underrated sitcom. It was actually quite funny and had a great cast. When people talk about the great NBC sitcoms over the years they always talk about Seinfeld, NewsRadio, and Friends, and while Just Shoot Me wasn't up to the greatness of those shows, it was good and funny. Now one of the stars is joining HBO's Entourage.

George Segal will play a veteran manager/agent who Kevin Connolly's character looks up to and seeks for advice. It doesn't look like a permanent gig (The Hollywood Reporter describes his stint as a "multi-episode arc"), but I think he'll be a great addition. It might even make me get back to the show. I loved the first few seasons but it kinda lost me a couple of seasons ago.

But isn't that great casting? You can just picture Segal getting all loud and chomping on a cigar.

John Schneider in odd new show

by Brett Love, posted Jun 26th 2008 9:05AM

John Schneider - twentysixmilesJohn Schneider could be back on our television screens soon, if someone will buy the show. The odd part about this one isn't the content, but rather the production. Schneider is starring in twentysixmiles -- a reference to Catalina Island, where the show is being shot -- which is an independently funded production. Executive producer Rob Miller is spending some $5.5 million to shoot six episodes of the show that can serve as a launch to the series, or a trio of movies.

And he's doing the whole thing with no deal in place for broadcast. Ballsy. Despite the lack of a studio deal, they have managed to land some pretty big names to join Schneider. George Segal (Just Shoot Me), Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development), and James Denton (Desperate Housewives) are all set to make cameos while Jessica Tuck (Judging Amy), Eric Lange, and Daniel Quinn will be part of the regular cast. Schneider's character is a high powered executive who moves to Catalina Island after his wife divorces him in order to be closer to his children.

Boston Legal: The Gods Must Be Crazy

Shatner on BL(S04E19) It wasn't until I saw George Segal that I realized how much I missed seeing him on TV. It made me long for the days when he and Finch made me laugh out loud and lament the fact that David Spade hasn't done anything funny since.

While the thought of Denny Crane being President of the United States is certainly funny, the idea that he would be chosen for his electability is ludicrous. Aside from the more obvious problems, the Republicans would never nominate a single man with multiple divorces and an embarrassing arrest record. Let's be honest.
