'Community' star Alison Brie to produce TV Land comedy pilot 'Teachers'

Alison Brie may be taking the whole “stay in school” thing a little too seriously.

The Community star is attached to executive produce Teachers, a comedy pilot based on the popular Web series of the same name, for TV Land, EW has confirmed.

“From the second this project came across my desk, I’ve been in love with it,” said TV Land president Larry W. Jones. “The tone of the show is unlike anything we’ve had on TV Land. I’m really excited about the idea of building this unexplored world, where teachers are the eccentric characters you always hoped they weren’t.”

According to the network, Teachers follows six elementary school teachers who try to get their own lives in order while shaping (or destroying) the minds of the American youth. Stalking your ex online is bad enough — don’t get the children involved! Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O’Brien, and Katie Thomas  (a.k.a the Katydids — yes all of their names are some form of Kate) will reprise their roles from the Web series for TV. Brie will executive produce alongside Matt Miller (Chuck) and the producers of the Web series Cap Gun TV.

Betty White wrote a cursive letter to the Internet

Betty White wrote a delightful letter asking fans to watch Wednesday’s live season premiere of Hot in Cleveland. The note begins “Dear Internet” and is basically perfect.

“Who knew at 91 that I would be blessed to work on yet another wonderful and fun sitcom!” White writes. “And boy, do I have a blast. Where else could I get to be a bride, a jailbird, a college freshman, and a fugitive in Amish Country?”

'Forever Young' finale sneak peek: The senior citizens learn how to 'bump and grind' at a night club -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

In an exclusive sneak peek of this Wednesday’s Forever Young finale — the reality show that pairs “juniors” and “seniors” together to live in a house —the young adults take their elderly counterparts out on the town for a night of dancing. Once it’s clarified that they are going to a “club” and not a “disco,” the dance lessons begin. What follows is a little bump and grind, a little shopping cart action and at least one occurrence of a lap dance. By the end of the night, the “lewd dancing” seems to be a hit with everyone.

Kramer's comeback? Michael Richards cast in Kirstie Alley pilot

Kramer’s heading back to TV.

TV Land confirms to EW that Seinfeld star Michael Richards has been cast in the pilot of Giant Baby, a new sitcom starring Kirstie Alley. The pilot tapes next week. Richards hasn’t had a starring role on the small (or big) screen since 2000, when The Michael Richards Show came and went on NBC. (Blame that old Seinfeld curse, or the fact that the series wasn’t funny.) Of course, his career really hit a standstill in 2006, when a vulgar, belligerent clip of the comedian freely spouting the N-word at West Hollywood’s Laugh Factory hit TMZ.

Here’s a series description, courtesy of TV Land. READ FULL STORY

TV Land's 'Happily Divorced': Molly Shannon tapped to guest star -- EXCLUSIVE

Fran Drescher isn’t the only one who will be Happily Divorced come next year: EW has just exclusively learned that SNL alum Molly Shannon will guest on the TV Land sitcom, in an episode set to air not long after the new year.

Shannon is set to play the Maggie, the sister of Peter (John Michael Higgins), the gay guy who used to be married to — and still lives with — florist Fran (Fran Drescher). Like Fran, Shannon’s character is recently divorced and moves to LA to stay with the odd couple. The casting actually pits Shannon against Drescher, as Drescher’s character doesn’t like Shannon’s Maggie because of an infraction that dates back to the wedding day between Fran and Peter. Some new things come to light about that day after Maggie surfaces in LA.

Shannon is set to tape her episode in the coming weeks.

Happily Divorced returns to TV Land with new episodes on Wednesday, Nov. 28, at 10:30 p.m.

Marissa Jaret Winokur talks 'Retired at 35' wedding finale, love triangle complication

,” she says, “and there’s definitely a triangle going on for a little while.”

Winokur admits the season-long tug-of-war between the two guys was even tough for her. “I actually didn’t even know as an actress who I wanted Amy to be with,” she says. “Every week when I’d get a script, I’d wonder which way it was going to go — ‘Is this the week that says [she's] with Brandon, or is the one that says [she's] with Jared?’ … One week, I’d be super-close with Josh and be like, ‘Oh, I hope we’re going to get together this week!’ [Then again] John and I have such great chemistry, too. So even I was wishy-washy with who [Amy] should be with.” READ FULL STORY

'The Exes': Judith Light returns as Kristen Johnston's mother -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Can there ever be too much Judith Light on television? In a word: no. Which is why it’s good that the Who’s the Boss? legend is returning to her guesting gig on TV Land’s sitcom The Exes, where she plays the over-bearing mother to Kristen Johnston’s divorce lawyer character Holly Brooks. EW has an exclusive clip of Light’s reappearance on The Exes in tomorrow night’s new episode, titled “Sister Act,” which also stars Amanda Detmer as Light’s other, more beloved, perfect daughter Jill.

Just like last time, the appearance of Light’s motherly character ruffles Holly’s feathers, largely because she’s so often pushed to the side in favor of her perfect — and married — sister. The full episode apparently finds Holly inventing an alternative lifestyle for herself that spirals out of control (to impress Mommy Dearest maybe?), but until it airs Wednesday evening at 10:30 p.m., whet your appetite with a preview clip of Light’s return — and the fireworks it causes — here:

'The Exes' star Kristen Johnston previews season 2, talks about her return to sitcom life

TV Land’s sitcom The Exes returns for its second season of 12 episodes tonight at 10:30 p.m., so in anticipation of that, EW hopped on the phone with star Kristen Johnston to discuss what fans can expect on the coming episodes of the show. First, let’s start with the photo here, which shows a moment in next week’s episode — the second of the season — when Johnston’s character Holly learns that her client Stuart (David Alan Basche) is extremely well endowed — hence that big baguette.

“I find out he’s well endowed, and I try to insist to myself and everyone else that that matters not even a little bit,” Johnston explains, with a laugh. “Of course, he keeps trying to teach me how to cook and everything he pulls out happens to be a baguette or a giant cucumber, and I have to wash the cucumber. If there was ever a Lucille Ball episode — of me robbing from her — this is it.” READ FULL STORY
