Why The Show “Silver Foxes” Would Be Great For Television

A new show has been created but it is struggling to get noticed by Hollywood. “Silver Foxes is a sitcom that is patterned after the long running and beloved “Golden Girls.” It is a reboot of the show and the rumor is that George Takei is set to star in it. The creators of the show are disappointed because their work is not getting the attention that they had hoped for. So far, nobody has picked the series up. Here is a little more about the show and the reasons why it would be great for television.

The creators

Stan Zimmerman and James Berg and the screenwriters responsible for bringing the concept to script form. The series takes place in Palm Springs, California and it is about four older men who are gay, living together. It definitely has taken its’ inspiration from “The Golden Girls,” but it is not a spinoff. Zimmerman disclosed that he and Berg are experiencing a total shutout from Hollywood. Zimmerman is the writer for several episodes of “Roseanne,” “The Gilmore Girls,” and the movie “A Very Brady Sequel.” He believes that there is a degree of homophobia and ageism involved in the block.

Proposed cast members

Should the series be granted the opportunity to air, it will Star the famous George Takei, Todd Sherry, Bruce Vilanch and Leslie Jordan as the four main characters. The cast was assembled in 2016 and here a year later, there is no move to make the show a reality.

Why the show should air








The show would be funny

We could all use some great humor. Why can’t we as entertained by four guys as we were by four women? The answer is, that we could. It would be a lot like a double dose of “The Odd Couple.” While there are serious legal battles going on to protect the rights of LGBTQ people, The show would be a timely addition to the lineup of favorites. Who knows…perhaps it would be a bit hit that would give a network’s ratings a good healthy lift.

Takei’s thinking on the matter

George has shared the fact that he is frustrated over the hold placed on “Silver Foxes.” He hit the nail on the head when he discussed the show as a “commentary on contemporary life.” It could represent a challenge for networks that have a large homophobic viewing audience. Producers are having a rough time making the decision to take the project under their wings.

Will the show fade into obscurity?

Zimmerman is optimistic about the chances that the show will eventually get air time. If all else fails, he may resort to a streaming service. There are plenty of fans who would appreciate the show and it sounds like something that would draw a huge audience. We’re all hoping that there will be a change in Hollywood and that they’ll at least give the series its’ shot.

American classic theater, bawdy faves & B’way stars light up the ‘off-Commercial Street’ season in Provincetown

From Eugene O’Neill to Ryan Landry to Broadway stars, The Provincetown Theater’s 2015 season promises to have something for everyone. Both contemporary and early cutting-edge plays, a Broadway concert series, a centennial celebration of the Provincetown Players, a workshop of a new musical and Ryan Landry’s “Thoroughly Muslim Millie” on Sunday nights, there should be more than enough to entice theater-goers to leave the bustle and excitement of downtown Provincetown and flock to the theater’s off-Commercial Street location at 238 Bradford St.

There is even a new downtown box office at Kiss & Makeup, 244 Commercial St., to make it easier to buy tickets.

The season begins with Provincetown favorites Joe MacDougall and John Long in “The Lonely Planet” by Stephen Dietz from May 27-June 7. The play, influenced by Ionesco’s “The Chairs,” explores the evolution of two gay men in an unknown city during the AIDS epidemic. The play won the 1994 PEN Center Award for Drama.

CTEK Arts is presenting the world premiere of “Rosetta,” Candyce Rusk’s musical about Sister Rosetta Tharpe, considered by many music aficionados to be the godmother of rock ’n’ roll. Directed by Margaret Van Sant, working with musical director Clyde Shelby Mellert, this staged musical workshop runs June 11-14.

Beginning June 21 and playing Sundays through Sept. 13, Ryan Landry and his Gold Dusk Orphans, open their new comedy “Thoroughly Muslim Millie” after a sold-out, rave-reviewed run in Boston. Landry recently received the Boston Critic’s Association’s 2015 Eliot Norton Award for Sustained Excellence in Theater.

July brings “Then & Now: A Centennial Celebration of the Provincetown Players.” A group of actors, writers, intellectuals and Greenwich Village bohemians formed a theater company in Provincetown in the 1920s and changed the face of the American Theater. Among the company members were Eugene O’Neill, Susan Glaspell, George Cram Cook and Neith Boyce, all of whom acted, wrote and produced new plays. Because of them, Provincetown became known as the birthplace of modern American drama. The theater presents an evening of short plays by these illustrious writers July 2-18.

A new Broadway Concert Series from R.J. Productions takes the theater in a new direction. The all-star line up includes Lena Hall, Christine Ebersole, Adam Pascal, Anthony Rapp and Telly Leung, Trevor McQueen, Bruce Vilanch and Ann Hampton, and Liz Callaway. “The Provincetown Theater is very excited to be collaborating with Rich Aronson of RJ Productions in New York to bring the community an intimate Broadway Concert Series this summer,” says the theater’s board president Brian Carlson.

August brings the Broadway comedy “Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man,” scripted by Matt Murphy and Jim Brochu and produced by Shawn Nightingale, to the theater. The play is based on the best-selling book of the same name by Dan Anderson and Maggie Berman.


David Mamet’s “Oleanna” plays two weekends in September. Directed by John Williams, the theater is producing the play in conjunction with Cotuit Center for the Arts.

In November, the theater hosts one play, to be announced, as part of the Tennessee Williams Theater Festival. And later that month “The Verge: An Experiment in Feminism,” takes the stage. This was Glaspell’s first full-length play originally produced by The Provincetown Players at the Wharf Theater. Frank Vasello directs.
