TV Land gave Betty White an early birthday present late last week. The cable channel renewed her current sitcom — Hot in Cleveland — for a fourth season of 24 episodes. Starring White, Jane Leeves, Wendi Malick, and Valerie Bertinelli, the TV series has been a big help to TV Land as they continue to launch their own sitcoms like Happily Divorced, Retired at 35, and The Exes.
TV Land has also announced that they’ve ordered their fifth new sitcom — Have Faith. Starring Cedric “The Entertainer” and Niecy Nash, the show revolves around a former R&B artist who takes over as preacher of his dad’s church. The cable channel has ordered a dozen episodes and they’re expected to start running in June.
Here’s the press release from TV Land:
