“The Golden Girls” is getting an all Black cast for a one night charitable performance.
According to CNN, Alfre Woodard, Tracee Ellis Ross, Sanaa Lathan, and Regina King will star in the re-imagining of the hit 1980s comedy series “Tuesday for a Zoom Where It Happened” virtual watch party.
The sign up page for the event reads: “In an effort to further engage our community and drive change, all you need to do to enjoy this evening is sign up to receive messages about how you can make a change during this election! This event is in partnership with Zoom, and the first episode is spotlighting and supporting Color of Change – the nation’s largest online racial justice organization.”
According to a post by Ross, the event happens today:
“The Golden Girls” ran on NBC from 1985 to 1992 starring Beatrice Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty as a group of senior citizen roommates living in Miami.
The sitcom is beloved and gained even more popularity in syndication.
