Default The Hallmark Channel and WE tv Honor Bea Arthur with Golden Girls Marathons

See much more info on the blog, including WE tv's plans:

Hallmark Channel to Memorialize ‘Golden Girl’
Bea Arthur
In Marathon Run of Dorothy-centric Episodes from the Classic Series

‘GOLDEN GIRLS,’ Sunday, May 31

Legendary Star of Stage and Screen Succumbs Today in Los Angeles



Hallmark Channel announces it will pay tribute to legendary star Bea Arthur, who passed away today at her home in Los Angeles, with a “Golden Girls” Marathon (Sunday, May 31 (8:30 a.m. – 3:00 a.m.) featuring episodes focusing on Arthur’s character Dorothy Zbornak, a gruff, wise-cracking divorcée who shared her Miami home with her mother and two loopy friends.

Arthur, nominated for eight Emmy® Awards [two wins] remarked in 2001 that she “flipped” when she read the pilot script for “Golden Girls.”

“After all the crap I had been sent, here was something so bright, adult, and fabulously funny,” Arthur said.

Henry Schleiff, President and CEO, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel HD, said, “It is impossible to overstate Bea Arthur’s impact on TV culture. She is actually one of a handful of comediennes who genuinely altered the direction of the medium in which she starred.

“‘Golden Girls’ is a recent acquisition for Hallmark Channel, and though it was first broadcast 25 years ago, the classic series has the most dedicated fans and strikes gold wherever it plays. It became an instant hit on our network.

“Putting an entire day of Dorothy-centric stories on Memorial Day allows Hallmark Channel the opportunity to truly memorialize this immensely talented, unapologetic, and incomparably adept star Bea Arthur. To all the “Golden Girls,” we say, ‘thank you for being a friend.’”

Arthur was a Broadway sensation whose portrayal of Vera Charles in Mame won her a Tony and the admiration of Lucille Ball who insisted that Arthur be cast in the film version [Arthur believed the role should have gone to her good friend Angela Lansbury].

In the second transformation of her show business career, Bea Arthur was 50 years old when she was brought to Hollywood to star in the controversial comedy “Maude,” for which she scored five Emmy nominations and one win. “Golden Girls” followed, though the star felt after six seasons that it was time for her to move on. Arthur was last nominated for an Emmy® Award for her guest starring role in “Malcolm in the Middle” in 2001. The star last appeared on television in an episode of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” in 2005.

“Golden Girls” plays daily on Hallmark Channel [Monday-Friday, 8-10 a.m., 7-9 p.m., 12-2 a.m., Saturdays 6-9 a.m., Sundays 8:30-10 a.m.].

Hallmark Channel, owned and operated by Crown Media United States, LLC is a 24-hour basic cable network that provides a diverse slate of high-quality entertainment programming to a national audience of 86 million subscribers. The top tier program service is distributed through more than 5,450 cable systems and communities as well as direct-to-home satellite services across the country. Hallmark Channel consistently ranks among the top 10 ad-supported cable networks in Prime Time and Total Day household ratings and is the nation’s leading network in providing quality family programming. Crown Media also operates a second 24-hour linear channel which plays the greatest family movies of all time, Hallmark Movie Channel, and launched Hallmark Movie Channel HD in April, 2008.

THE GOLDEN GIRLS Marathon

Featuring Our Favorite Dorothy Episodes to Air

Monday Night Beginning 5pm/e, 4pm/c

and Thursday at 9:30pm/e, 8:30pm/c on WE tv



New York, NY, April 27, 2008 – WE tv, home of television’s beloved series THE GOLDEN GIRLS announced today two special nights of programming to honor Bea Arthur who died this past weekend at the age of 86. WE Remember Bea will feature a marathon of favorite THE GOLDEN GIRLS episodes both Monday, April 27 beginning 5pm/e, 4p/c and Thursday, April 30 beginning 9:30pm/e, 8:30pm/c. The acclaimed actress, known for her quick wit and willingness to embrace controversial issues was the centerpiece of the comedic series, which won more than 38 awards during its run. WE Remember Bea will be comprised of episodes which center on Bea Arthur’s colorful character Dorothy Zbornak and key related storylines from the series.



THE GOLDEN GIRLS was an immediate hit with viewers when it first debuted, and remains one of television’s most acclaimed sitcoms. Starring Bea Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty, THE GOLDEN GIRLS profiles the unexpected lives and loves of a group of retirees living together in Miami . The women form the perfect circle of friends, and bring laughter, tears and fun for an audience of all ages. All of the show’s cast members, won Emmys during the series’ seven season initial run. WE tv is currently television’s home to this extraordinarily popular and empowering series for women.



Ms. Arthur was an award-winning television and stage actress known for her distinctively raspy voice and sharp tongue. Following her Tony award winning turn on Broadway in "Mame", Ms. Arthur guest starred on "All in the Family" which quickly led to her own series, entitled "Maude". In 1985, she stepped into THE GOLDEN GIRLS where she enjoyed great success, further cementing her spot in the pantheon of television history as one of the medium’s greatest stars.



Ms. Arthur, twice-divorced, was married to producer/director Robert Alan Aurthur and also to director Gene Saks. It was with Saks she adopted her sons Matthew and Daniel. She is survived by a sister, her sons and two granddaughters.

I watched a few episodes earlier. Right now I'm watching One Tree Hill. I'll watch the last couple of episodes after OTH ends.

I would have thought that at the end they would have at least added In Memory of Bea Arthur or something but they didn't...

Well I'm glad they at least they showed the episodes.

The acid-tongued Dorothy defended her social views in a way that was compatible with Arthur’s physically imposing 5 feet 9 inch frame. Actors who worked with Bea Arthur agreed, no one held a stare or delivered a line more deftly. Her comedic timing was impeccable. “Golden Girls” was a groundbreaking TV series, stretching the demographic boundaries of television, giving older people and women a voice they had never had before.

Hallmark Channel CEO Henry Schleiff remarked in a press release about Arthur’s death on April 25, “‘Golden Girls was an instant hit for this network.’”

“Golden Girls” plays daily on Hallmark Channel [Monday-Friday, 8-10 a.m., 7-9 p.m., 12-2 a.m., Saturdays 6-9 a.m., Sundays 8:30-10 a.m.].

I was upset when GG left Lifetime, but couldn't be happier with the way We and Hallmark are handling the show and giving it and Bea the respect it deserves. Props to them.

I agree WE and Hallmark are doing a very honorable thing by honoring Bea through the marathons. I watched the marathon here and there today and I loved the tribute clips they played during the marathon.
