The ‘Golden Girls’ Gets A Reboot W/ An All Black Cast

Tracee Ellis Ross, Sanaa Lathan, Alfre Woodard and Regina King play  the four iconic  characters in our favorite TV show, ‘The Golden Girls’. The series will bring awareness about voting, election issues, and social justice organizations. 

If you love the Golden Girls, then you probably tuned in Tuesday as the hit show came back with a bit of a cast shakeup. Tracee Ellis Ross, Sanaa Lathan, Alfre Woodard, and Regina King will play the iconic ladies from our favorite sitcom show.

Tuesday’s reboot was all part of a new series called Zoom Where It Happens which was created by Black women in Hollywood who wanted to encourage people to get out and vote in the upcoming election as well as bring awareness to election issues, and highlight different social justice organizations.

Last night’s episode was directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood with Lena Waithe and Stephanie Allain as the producer and host. The stars reenacted the original “Flu” episode where all of the ladies catch the flu and are running for the same award which causes them to start feuding with each other. The episode also highlighted the racial justice organization, Color of Change.

Gina tweeted about the reboot’s success and that 100k people registered for 50k spots available!

What’s also exciting is this new series is going to air every Tuesday at 6pm, with a different show reenactment and different stars. I personally can’t wait to see who’s next!

Fans seemed to love the show! Could this be a new way of doing table readings? Time will tell but so far, Zoom Where It Happens is off to a great start.

By the way, did anyone catch the new take on the theme song?! I mean, wow!!
