Yes, I know that’s redundant since The Golden Girls is really gay. But I’m talking about a version of the Golden Girls starring gay men, and no, it’s not called Golden Gays. It’s called Silver Foxes. I can already see Anderson Cooper rolling his eyeballs over them stealing his nickname!
As HuffPo points out, the producing and writing team of James Berg and Stan Zimmerman, who wrote episodes of The Golden Girls and Roseanne as well as A Very Brady Sequel, were on the podcast Party Foul Radio with Pollo & Pearl to talk about stuff. James and Stan said that after watching the documentary Before You Know It, which is about the struggles of elder-gays, they got the idea to do a show about four older gay men. So they wrote the pilot for Silver Foxes and last year they did a table reading of the script with George Takei, Bruce Vilanch, Leslie Jordan, Todd Sherry, Cheri Oteri and more!
Stan said this about the read:
“When they got the script, it was just hysterical. It was a pretty classic afternoon in my house. I hope to share that with the rest of the world on a real TV show. I think it could be so great.”
James and Stan are currently shopping the show to the networks, Hulu and Netflix. The cast that did the table read is attached to do the show if it gets bought.
Like a virgin bottom christening his hole with a 9″ burrito dick, I’m torn. On one hand, a gay man Golden Girls sounds like a gay gift wrapped with a gay bow from gay heaven. But on the other hand – Oh, who am I fooling? I’m using both hands (I’m typing this with my nose) to praise gay Jesus for the possibility that soon I may be able to watch a scene where hilarity ensues when Gay Blanche (Leslie Jordan?) and Gay Dorothy (George Takei?) accidentally meet for a hook-up after using Grindr for the first time. Or maybe Bruce Vilanch is the Gay Dorothy? He does have the voice. Actually they both do.
