*TV Land has announced it’s developing a “Hot in Cleveland” spin-off starring Cedric the Entertainer.
The as-yet-untitled series will focus on a character Cedric will debut on Cleveland’s upcoming third season: a minister who gets involved with the ladies’ adventures.
“We’re definitely going to bring people quality entertainment and laughs with this new show,” Cedric said. “I’m very excited to be working with TV Land and the creative team of Hot in Cleveland.”
The project is contingent upon the pilot script, which will be co-written by Cedric and “Cleveland” creator Suzanne Martin.
“Cedric is hilarious and I’m so happy to do this show with him,” Martin said. “We are going to have a lot of fun developing and exploring his role as a minister.”
“Hot in Cleveland,” starring Betty White, Valerie Bertinelli, Wendy Malick and Jane Leeves, returns on June 15.
