The first image of Betty White and her co-stars from the new sitcom, Hot In Cleveland, have hit the web, reinforcing the comedienne’s current reign as the queen of pop culture.
TV Land announced yesterday that the former Golden Girls actress had signed on to Hot in Cleveland, which is expected to premiere in June. She’ll be playing the snarky yet adorable Elka Ostrovsky, who works as a property caretaker of the home being rented by three L.A. women of a certain age.
“The talented Betty White is the finishing touch to this outstanding sitcom ensemble,” TV Land president Larry W. Jones said in a statement. “Betty’s illustrious career spans more than 60 years and makes her one of Hollywood’s most iconic and sought after actresses in television today. Her lively role as Elka in Hot in Cleveland is what viewers love to see from her – an amazing sense of timing and fantastic comedy genius. We are confident audiences will love her in this project, TV Land’s first foray into scripted television.”
The sitcom also stars three other TV veterans, Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and Wendie Malick.
Last night, White appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno where the actress, who is always a good sport, “showered” with Hugh Jackman for the show’s opening.
