TV Land has renewed a comedy series and ordered a spinoff of the show, Deadline.com reports. The cable network ordered a fourth season of its flagship series, “Hot in Cleveland,” and picked up an untitled spinoff of the show, which will star Cedric the Entertainer, the story reports.
"Hot in Cleveland" is coming off a win in the People’s Choice Awards during the past week as best cable comedy. The spinoff will be written by Cedric and "Cleveland" creator Suzanne Martin.
Reverend Boyce, the character Cedric has played on "Cleveland," will leave Ohio for his hometown of St. Louis, where he balances his work with the church and the congregation with his home life. Niecy Nash will co-star in the show, and Sean Hayes ("Will & Grace") and Todd Milliner are executive producing with Cedric and Martin.
