Throughout seven years of cheesecake, risqué quips and massive laughs, The Golden Girls was TV’s unlikeliest smash hit. Pairing three seasoned acting pros and one small-screen newbie with impeccable writing resulted in a sitcom that took the TV world by storm in the late ’80s—shattering senior citizen stereotypes and providing hilarious inspiration and empowerment to generations of viewers. Narrated by Valerie Bertinelli, Golden Girls: Ageless celebrates the iconic show, from its perfect cast to its complex subject matter that went far beyond typical sitcom fodder—tackling issues that included mental health, alcoholism, homelessness and race, all while never losing its potent and signature sense of humor.
