George Segal's going on '35' for TV Land

New sitcom pilot follows yuppie's move-in with father

"Just Shoot Me" alum George Segal is returning to the multicamera comedy genre with a starring role on TV Land’s half-hour pilot "Retired at 35."

The project follows a successful young businessman who decides to leave the New York rat race behind and move into his father's Florida retirement home. Segal will play the father, a former insurance executive who loves his new lifestyle of fun and partying.

"Retired" and another sitcom pilot, "Hot in Cleveland," mark TV Land's first foray into original scripted series and are targeted for the network's primetime block TV Land Prime.

ICM-repped Segal, who starred in the NBC ensemble comedy "Just Shoot Me" for seven seasons, recently recurred on HBO's "Entourage" and is onscreen in "2012."
