NEW GOLDEN GIRLS DOCUMENTARY AIRS THIS WEEKEND ON REELZ
The new documentary Golden Girls: Ageless premieres this Saturday at 8ET/PT on Reelz and reviews are already coming in! Writes author and talk show host Herbie J. Pilato, “Ageless hits its stride right out of the gate. With winning narration provided by actress Valerie Bertinelli, White’s later co-star on TV Land’s Hot in Cleveland hit ( 2010–2015), Ageless voices all the pertinent points of what keeps the senior-geared-sitcom so retro-active and relative today.” Read Mr. Pilato’s full review here.
Golden Girls: Ageless celebrates the iconic show’s perfect cast and ability to take on complex subject matter that was far beyond sitcom fodder at the time, tackling mental health, alcoholism, and homelessness all while never losing its potent and signature sense of humor. The special also examines off screen hurdles including star Estelle Getty’s heartbreaking battle with dementia and the simmering headbutting between stars Bea Arthur and Betty White. Viewers will also learn about incredible fandom surrounding the sitcom that continues to grow like wildfire decades after the show premiered. Sharing their stories of The Golden Girls are its famed director Terry Hughes, writer Stan Zimmerman and Getty’s son Carl Gettleman among others. Golden Girls: Ageless is produced by AMS Pictures.
