Guess the cat is out of the bag about that secret reading I had last year. Fingers crossed that Hulu or a major network has the guts to portray the story of 4 older gay men. #silverfoxes #sitcom #gaymensgoldengirls #pride http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/593912d3e4b094fa859f15ea

The team behind Golden Girls are cooking up something new—with the upcoming comedy, Silver Foxes! Super Deluxe has teamed up with writers and producers Stan Zimmerman and James Berg to develop a show about two older gay men and their friend’s younger boyfriend. They join forces to help out their friend who’s been forced back in the closet—rescuing him from his homophobic nursing home to create a family of their own.

Zimmerman and Berg decided to create Silver Foxes after seeing Gen Silent, a documentary about LGBTQ seniors navigating discrimination in nursing homes. This is a story that needs to be heard, and Silver Foxes is already creating buzz. Last year, the duo hosted a famous table read of the pilot with George Takei, Leslie Jordan, Bruce Vilanch, Todd Sherry, Melissa Peterman, Daniele Gaither, and Cheri Oteri. What a lineup. Stay tuned for more details and keep scrolling to find out more about the show!

From Super Deluxe:
The half-hour, single-camera series is about two older gay men and one twink (their buddy’s young lover) that rescue a friend who’s been forced-back-in-the-closet at his homophobic assisted living facility. After they bring him back to their mid-century Palm Springs house, the foursome creates a fabulous family of friends.
