Jessica Walter, George Segal enjoying ‘Retired at 35’ series

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Jessica Walter reports that she and George Segal are having a blast shooting their forthcoming “Retired at 35″ comedy. The second TV Land original series, it will be paired with the oh-so-hot “Hot In Cleveland” come January.

“Initally, they offered me a guest-starring role as George Segal’s wife, who leaves him. I hoped I’d get back on for an episode or two. But then they came back to me and I”m going to be in all shows produced,” says the actress, who lets us know her new character is not as mean as such well-known Walter women as “Arrested Development’s” Lucille Bluth.

“Retired at 35″ has a New York professional man (Johnathan McClain) becoming so charmed by his parents’ upscale retirement community in Florida, he decides to quit the rat race and move in with them. “Now he’s also dealing with the separation of Mom and Dad, which ups the stakes a little,” says Jessica.
