Last June, we told you about Silver Foxes, the “gay Golden Girls” TV project being developed by two former Golden Girls writers. Well, it looks like the project is one step closer to actually happening as its creators recently started development with the Turner Broadcasting-owned comedy production team Super Deluxe. Super Deluxe is the same team behind the 2018 gay deaf webseries This Close and the 10-episode remake of the 1985 gay drama My Beautiful Laundrette.

Former Golden Girls writers James Berg and Stan Zimmerman started developing their gay senior citizen sitcom last year and held a reading of the pilot with gay actors Leslie Jordan, George Takei and Bruce Vilanch as well as Parks and Recreation actors Todd Sherry and Cheri Oteri.
