Betty White scored a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series for her role on TV Land’s “Hot in Cleveland” for the upcoming 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards; it was announced this morning from the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood. ‘Hot in Cleveland’ also stars beloved actresses Valerie Bertinelli (‘One Day at a Time’), Jane Leeves (‘Frasier’) and Wendie Malick (‘Just Shoot Me’). White won the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor in a Comedy Series last year for the same role.
“We are so proud to have Betty recognized again for her role on ‘Hot in Cleveland,’” stated Larry W. Jones, President, TV Land. “It’s such an honor for us to work with her. She is a true legend and the chemistry between the four women is amazing – they are television all-stars.”
‘Hot in Cleveland’ revolves around three fabulous best friends from LA – novelist Melanie Moretti (Valerie Bertinelli), eye-brow archer to the stars Joy Scroggs (Jane Leeves) and former soap star Victoria Chase (Wendie Malick) – who find their lives changed forever when their plane, headed for Paris, makes an unexpected landing. When the friends discover that life is better for them and that they are hot in Cleveland, they decide to stay. Starting over together, they rent a house that happens to come with a very opinionated caretaker (Betty White). The show is currently in its third season and airs Wednesdays at 10pm on TV Land.
Filmed in front of a live audience, ‘Hot in Cleveland’ is executive-produced by Emmy Award-winner Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner of Hazy Mills Productions and is helmed by Emmy-Award winning Suzanne Martin (‘Frasier,’ ‘Ellen’) serving as executive producer, show runner and writer. Lynda Obst also serves as executive producer, and Larry W. Jones and Keith Cox are executive producers for TV Land.
’Hot in Cleveland’ is currently seen around the world in over 165 countries.
