Betty White is going global! Endemol has acquired international distribution rights to TV Land’s first original scripted series, comedy Hot in Cleveland, which stars red-hot sitcom veteran White, along with Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and Wendie Malick. Cleveland‘s debut last week made history for TV Land, drawing the network’s largest audience ever, 5 million viewers. Endemol will take Cleveland to MIPCOM in the fall.
