TV Lands HOT IN CLEVELAND, SOUL MAN to Premiere with Live Episodes 3/26

TVLand announces a LIVE television event: one hilarious hour with two LIVE back-to-back season premieres of original sitcoms - "Hot inCleveland" and "TheSoulMan." "Hot in Cleveland" will go LIVE on Wednesday, March 26 that 10pmET, and "The Soul Man" will follow at 10:30pmET.

"The Soul Man," a spin-off of "Hot In Cleveland," stars Cedric "The Entertainer" as Reverend Boyce Ballentine, a character that originated as Elka Ostrovsky's (Betty White, "Hot In Cleveland") pastor. Their characters will again cross over into each other's worlds during the live shows. The West Coast will get the live-to-tape versions beginning at 10pm PT.

"We shoot in front of a live studio audience every week, but nothing is more exciting than working without a net," said Larry W. Jones, President, TV Land. "The thrill of knowing that viewers at home are seeing exactly what's happening live on stage really amps up the pressure and makes the energy on set electrifying."

"Hot In Cleveland" premiered their last season with a live episode on June 19, 2013. Guest stars in this episode included Brian Baumgartner ("The Office"), Danny Pudi ("Community"), Shirley Jones ("The Partridge Family") and "Star Trek" legend William Shatner, and the episode averaged 2.7 million total viewers (Source: Nielsen, L+7).

"Hot In Cleveland" revolves around three fabulous best friends from LA - Melanie Moretti (Valerie Bertinelli), Joy Scroggs (Jane Leeves) and Victoria Chase (Wendie Malick) - who find their lives changed forever when their plane, headed for Paris, makes an emergency landing in Cleveland. When the friends discover that life is better in Cleveland, they decide to stay. Starting over together, they rent a house that happens to come with a very opinioned caretaker, Elka Ostrovsky (White).
"The Soul Man" follows R&B superstar-turned-minister Reverend Boyce "The Voice" Ballentine (Cedric) after he relocated from Las Vegas to St. Louis with his wife Lolli (Niecy Nash).

While learning to adjust to their new humble life, they have plenty of obstacles in their way. One of these is Boyce's brother Stamps (Wesley Jonathan), who seems to have taken up permanent residence in their house - and that's only made worse when Stamps sparks a new relationship with Lolli's sister (Kellee Stewart).
