'Golden Girls' Team Developing a Gay Senior Citizen Comedy Series
In a report by Variety, it was announced that a production offshoot of Turner Broadcasting called Super Deluxe is working with writers/creators Stan Zimmerman and James Berg to bring the gay senior citizen comedy Silver Foxes to life.
Netflix and the creators of 'Gilmore Girls' are in preliminary talks to continue the revival.
As for the story, Silver Foxes follows three gay men—two older, one younger—who team up to help out a pal after he is forced back into the closet by his less open-minded assisted living community.
NBC's new series puts seniors into the spotlight. And in this exclusive clip, a young-at-heart dancer gets a surprise from Betty White.
The friends whisk the man away to their Palm Springs estate, where the unlikely group becomes quite tightknit. Zimmerman and Berg came up with the idea after viewing the documentary Gen Silent about LGBTQ seniors living in a world of discrimination within their nursing homes.
Hopefully more details come to light, who knows, maybe they can pop a Betty White cameo in there somewhere!
