David Fellows ??October 17, 2017

Boulder JFS held its fifth annual fundraiser, “Reel Hope Boulder,” on Saturday night at the Boulder JCC, and it was the most successful outing of the series.  Hollywood writer Bruce Vilanch not only entertained the crowd while being interviewed by Ron Bostwick, but did so for free, raising the net amount available for operations from the night’s take.  In addition to Vilanch, new JFS CEO Shepard Nevel addressed the audience, and JFS of Colorado Board Chair Charlie Gwirtsman was in attendance. Thanks to a match offered up by Jerry and Gail Sloat, the event raised over $90,000 for JFS of Colorado’s Boulder operation, led by Cathy Summer. Read More

The gay, male reboot of “Golden Girls” has hit a roadblock.

“Golden Girls” writers Stan Zimmerman and James Berg had announced they were pitching a pilot for a show titled “Silver Foxes,” a comedy series about four, older gay men living together.

George Takei, Leslie Jordan, Bruce Vilanch and Todd Sherry had already done a table read as the core four. Daniele Gaither and Cheri Oteri also read for the lesbian neighbors. Zimmerman told Fox News a Betty White guest appearance was also planned.

However, Zimmerman says homophobia has kept the show from being developed. Read More
