TV Land Picks Up Original Sitcom Hot in Cleveland for 10 Episodes Starting In June; Dancing with the Stars Season 10 Cast and Pairings

TV Land has announced it has greenlit 10 episodes of the original comedy sitcom Hot in Cleveland, starring a sensational veteran cast of Valerie Bertinelli (One Day at a Time), Wendie Malick (Just Shoot Me!) and Jane Leeves (Frasier) with the legendary Betty White (The Golden Girls, Mary Tyler Moore Show) in the pilot episode.
Hot in Cleveland is written by Emmy Award-winning Suzanne Martin (Frasier, Ellen) and is produced by Emmy Award-winner Sean Hayes (Will & Grace) and Todd Milliner of Hazy Mills Productions.
Hot in Cleveland is a TV Land PRIME original production and is the network's first venture into scripted comedy series. The series is scheduled to air starting in June 2010. Stay with us for a premiere date and more soon.
Hot in Cleveland revolves around three fabulous, LA women of a certain age and best friends (Bertinelli, Leeves and Malick). Their lives are changed forever when their plane - headed for Paris - unexpectedly lands in Cleveland and they soon rediscover themselves in this new "promised land." Loving their new home, the women find themselves living under one roof and battling the sassy caretaker of the property they have rented, played by Betty White.
See a video clip from the pilot episode:



Last night during the finale of The Bachelor: On The Wings of Love, ABC announced an all-new lineup of eleven stars for the tenth edition of Dancing with the Stars -- including a Baywatch babe, a legendary astronaut, a Bachelor, an Olympic gold medalist, a Bengal, an ESPN Reporter, a pop singer, an original 90210 alum, an actor, a comedienne and a reality television star who is the mother of eight -- will strut their stuff on the dance floor in the highly anticipated two-hour season premiere of Dancing with the Stars on Monday, March 22 from 8:00-10:00 p.m., ET/PT on ABC.
All eleven couples will dance for the first time on live national television on Monday, March 22, with couples either performing the Viennese Waltz or Cha Cha. In week two, all of the couples will return to dance their second routines in a two-hour show, Monday, March 29 from 8:00-10:00 p.m., ET/PT. The couple with the lowest combined judges' scores and viewer votes for both performances will be sent home on Tuesday, March 30 from 8:00-9:00 p.m., ET/PT in the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars: The Results, at a new time.

And now it is time to announce the celebrities and their professional partners!
1. Astronaut Buzz Aldrin will be paired with Ashly Costa (formerly DelGrosso), who returns for her fourth season and returns for the first time since season three.
2. Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson will be paired with newcomer Damian Whitewood.
3. Sexy ESPN reporter Erin Andrews will be paired with Maksim Chmerkoviskiy, who returns for his eighth season.
4. TV icon Shannen Doherty will be paired with Mark Ballas, who returns for his sixth season.
5. Reality TV mom Kate Gosselin will be paired with Tony Dovolani, who returns for his ninth straight season.
6. World Figure Skating champion Evan Lysacek will be paired with Anna Trebunskya, who returns for her fifth season.
7. Comedienne and sitcom star Niecy Nash will be paired with Louis Van Amstel, who returns for his sixth season.
8. NFL wide receiver Chad Ochocinco will be paired with Cheryl Burke, who returns for her ninth straight season.
9. The Bachelor star Jake Pavelka will be paired with Chelsie Hightower, who returns for her third season.
10. Pussycat Doll bombshell Nicole Scherzinger will be paired with Derek Hough, who returns for his sixth season.
11. And finally soap heartthrob Aiden Turner will be paired with Edyta Sliwinska, who has appeared in all ten seasons and the only one to do so.
Because the pairings goes from 16 last season to 11 this season, and that two pros are new from last season (one brand new), this means 7 professionals from last season will not be on this season. Fan favorite Lacey Schwimmer, last season's champion Kym Johnson, last season's runner-up Dmitry Chaplin, first season champ Alec Mazo, last season's newcomer Anna Demidova, veteran Jonathan Roberts, and the controversial Karina Smirnoff will not be on this season. They can turn up on Results Shows of course in performances. But hopefully they return in future seasons in actual pairings, especially fan fave Lacey and Dmitry.
