With guest stars including Emmy-nominated Max Greenfield, The Office's Angela Kinsey, Kirstie Alley from TV Land's new original sitcom Kirstie and returning guest stars Jennifer Love Hewitt, Craig Ferguson and more, Hot in Cleveland is getting even hotter as it nears 100 episodes.
Guest star Max Greenfield, well-known as the obnoxious Schmidt on New Girl, plays a charming con man who poses as a pet adoption consultant, while Angela Kinsey portrays an Admissions Counselor for a pre-school that Joy (Jane Leeves) wants her grandson Wilbur to attend.
Hot in Cleveland is also welcoming back some favourites from past seasons, including Jennifer Love Hewitt (The Client List); Craig Ferguson (The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson); John Mahoney (Frasier); Michael McMillian (True Blood); Jay Harrington (Better Off Ted); Dave Foley (The Kids in the Hall); and Georgia Engel (The Mary Tyler Moore Show) as Elka's (Betty White) BFF, Mamie Sue.
When the fifth season begins, Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli) will deal with the aftermath of the shocking news she received in the season four finale: she's pregnant.
The season will have some more surprises in store for Melanie as she starts to date one of her favourite singers. However, when the relationship goes south and he catches her in a lie, she gets Taylor Swift-ed and becomes the target of his latest hit song.
This season will also include a crossover between Hot in Cleveland and Kirstie, TV Land's newest original sitcom. The ladies travel to New York City, and in order to improve her Oscar karma, Victoria (Wendie Malick) confesses an old betrayal to her ex-roommate, Broadway star Maddie Banks (Kirstie Alley).
Hot in Cleveland is executive produced by Emmy Award-winner Sean Hayes (Will & Grace) 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.
