TV Land said today that it is proceeding with plans for a Hot In Cleveland spinoff starring Cedric the Entertainer. The planted spinoff, starring Cedric as a minister, will be introduced in multiple episodes of Hot In Cleveland’s upcoming season this summer. According to TV Land’s release, “the untitled series is contingent upon the pilot script, which will be co-written by Cedric and (Hot creator/executive producer) Suzanne Martin.” Martin would also serve as executive producer of the new series along with fellow Hot In Cleveland exec producers Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner of Hazy Mills Prods. “Coupling Cedric’s comedic timing with Suzanne’s incredible writing skills will definitely create magic for the network,” said TV Land’s EVP development and original programming Keith Cox. Hot In Cleveland returns with originals June 15.
