'Hot in Cleveland' crosses over with 'All My Children'

The extremely rare cross-network, cross-daypart crossover will take place on two "Hot in Cleveland" episodes, scheduled for on Feb. 16 and 23 on TV Land. Malick (or rather her "HiC" character, Victoria Chase), will then appear on ABC's "All My Children" on Feb. 24.

"Hot in Cleveland" established in its first season that soap actress Victoria considers Lucci her archrival. Lucci and her fellow "AMC" stars Darnell Williams and Michael E. Knight will appear on the sitcom when Victoria and Joy ( Jane Leeves) accompany Melanie ( Valerie Bertinelli) back to L.A. to sell her house.

While they're there Victoria lands a guest role on "All My Children" -- as a maid named Gertie, who gets fired by Erica Kane (Lucci) and then ends up working as a bartender at Confusion.

"We're so happy that Victoria Chase will finally get to show 'All My Children' fans why she is a soap superstar," TV Land president Larry W. Jones says. "We're so excited to partner with 'All My Children' to bring to life this classic TV form when television worlds collide."
