TV Land's Legendary "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" Reunion On "Hot In Cleveland" Airs Next Week Featuring Mary Tyler Moore, Valerie Harper, Cloris Leachman, Georgia Engel And Betty White

NEW YORK, Aug. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TV Land's historic reunion of the female cast of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" on the network's original sitcom, "Hot in Cleveland," is here! Next Wednesday, September 4 th at 10pm ET/PT, TV Land brings together Mary Tyler Moore, Valerie Harper, Cloris Leachman, Georgia Engel and "Hot in Cleveland" regular Betty White for an unprecedented reunion of one of the most revered TV casts of all time. This is the first time in over 30 years that the five former castmates have gotten together for a sitcom. 

In the episode, Elka (White), Melanie ( Valerie Bertinelli) Joy ( Jane Leeves) and Victoria ( Wendie Malick) are getting ready for their "birthdates" – their annual birthday tradition of setting each other up for dates – but choose to shake things up a bit this year. Elka and Mamie Sue (Engel) decide they want to get their bowling team back together, aptly named GLOB: the Gorgeous Ladies of Bowling. The team, which includes Elka, Mamie Sue, Diane (Moore), Peg (Leachman) and Angie (Harper), had a falling out decades ago after their championship season went to their heads. Meanwhile, Victoria meets with the indie director she idolizes ( Jesse Tyler Ferguson ) and is surprised to find that he has a very unique trait; Joy can't believe that her date ( George Hamilton ) has a more "mature" taste in women; and Melanie is psyched that her set-up is a plastic surgeon...until she isn't anymore. The season finale of "Hot in Cleveland" airs right after this amazing reunion at 10:30pm ET/PT – with special guest star Craig Ferguson .

"The Mary Tyler Moore Show" centered around Mary Richards ( Mary Tyler Moore), an ambitious, young and single assistant producer, and her career at the fictional WJM-TV News. With her best friend Rhoda Morgenstern ( Valerie Harper) and resident busy-body Phyllis Lindstrom ( Cloris Leachman), Mary tackled the stereotypes of being an independent working woman in what was typically a "man's world."  The show also starred Ed Asner as Mary's tough-love boss, station producer Lou Grant; Gavin MacLeod as cynical head news writer Murray Slaughter; Betty White as the man-crazy "Happy Homemaker" Sue Ann Nivens; Ted Knight as the dim-witted anchorman Ted Baxter; and Georgia Engel as Georgette Baxter, Ted's wife. Moore's company, MTM Enterprises, produced the series for CBS.

"Hot in Cleveland" is executive produced by Emmy® Award-winner Sean Hayes ("Will and Grace") and Todd Milliner of Hazy Mills Productions ("Grimm") and is helmed by Emmy® Award-winning Suzanne Martin ("Frasier," "Ellen") who serves as executive producer, show runner and head writer. Lynda Obst also serves as executive producer, and Larry W. Jones and Keith Cox are executive producers for TV Land. "Hot in Cleveland" is currently seen around the world in over 190 countries.
