UPDATE: TV Land Presents: The AFI Life Achievement Award Honoring Morgan Freeman will now air on Sunday, June 19th at 9pm ET/PT.

While you’re all likely looking forward to a summer outdoors, after long days in the heat, you’ll need a nice relaxing, air conditioned night in. What to do while you’re recuperating? Perhaps tune into TV Land. The network just released its summer schedule and it’s got a little something for everyone.

Betty White fans will be pleased to know Hot in Cleveland is back on June 15th at 10:00pm ET/PT. When we last left Elka (White), she bolted after being convicted of possessing stolen goods. Now Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli), Victoria (Wendie Malick) and Joy (Jane Leeves) must hit the road to track her down. Unfortunately, Elka didn’t head to Europe, Vegas or a sandy beach, rather Amish country.

If you’re looking for something fresh, you can also catch a brand new show starring Fran Drescher on Wednesday, June 15th at 10:30 ET/PT called Happily Divorced. Drescher stars as, well, Fran, as the story is inspired by Drescher’s own experiences. Not only does Fran’s husband’s (John Michael Higgins) newly announced sexual orientation put an end to their 18-year long marriage, but they’re forced to continue living together as he doesn’t have the cash to get a place of his own. Great way to get back into the dating game, huh?

Last up is a special presentation, TV Land Presents: The AFI Life Achievement Award Honoring Morgan Freeman. This one airs on Sunday, June 26th at 8:00pm ET/PT and is a must-see for any Freeman fan as the iconic actor will be given the 39th AFI Life Achievement award for his work in a slew of films including The Shawshank Redemption, Million Dollar Baby, Driving Miss Daisy and much more.
