Default The Golden Girls Creators On Finding a New Generation of Fans and Giving George Cloon

http://www.vulture.com/2017/03/the-g...-new-fans.html

Quote:
Three decades after its debut, The Golden Girls is still indelible: midnight cheesecake summits in the kitchen, hushed conversations on the “lanai,” snowy memories of St. Olaf, Old World tall tales of Sicily circa 1922, “Pussycat,” and even poor Stan Zbornak are all unmistakably Golden Girls. And with all 180 episodes of NBC’s juggernaut comedy now available on Hulu, a whole new generation has the chance to fall for Rose, Blanche, Sophia, and Dorothy.

It’s an occasion not lost on the creators of the 11-time Emmy-winning series, which ran on NBC from 1985 to 1992 and centered on four “women of a certain age” living together in Miami. Vulture spoke to the brain trust behind The Golden Girls — creator Susan Harris and executive producers Paul Junger Witt and Tony Thomas, the veteran writing team behind such classic sitcoms as Soap and Benson — about the often bizarre, enduring legacy of their groundbreaking series, how the notion of a show about “older women” has changed since the ’80s, their strangest cameos (George Clooney?), the pain of a failed spinoff, and the enduring magic of Betty White.

What a great read! Thanks for bringing it here, TMC.

You know what jumped out at me as the "happiest" tidbit in the whole article? The fact that, as of a year ago, Betty was still driving.
I love her so much that any news like that just makes my day.
