CBS TV Distribution to handle sales

CBS Television Distribution will handle syndication sales for the TV Land series “Hot in Cleveland,” the companies announced Thursday.

“Cleveland,” which recently launched its third season, sparked a lineup of original half-hours for the Viacom-owned cabler. The comedy stars Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick and Betty White.

“In a marketplace where the sitcom pipeline is dry, there is a pent-up demand by stations for a big, broad-skewing sitcom like this,” said CTD president Scott Koondel. “It will seamlessly slip into any TV station’s lineup.”

Executive producers of “Cleveland” are Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner of Hazy Mills Prods, Lynda Obst and Suzanne Martin who is also showrunner and writer.
