Golden Gays in Palm Springs

Hulu has just ordered a new sitcom which will likely be “Must See TV” for my readers.  Mid-Century Modern comes from Max Mutchnick and David Kohan (of Will & Grace fame) alongside Ryan Murphy – who seems to have his fingers in everything.  The premise is that three gay gentlemen of a certain age decide to live out their golden years in Palm Springs.  Nathan Lane plays Dorothy…err, Bunny.  And his mother moves in as well, played by the luminous Linda Lavin.  The hot gay who is also a bit dim (think Rose) will be the 46-year-old Matt Bomer.  I’d argue that he is not “golden” by any stretch of the imagination, although it bears noting that the Golden Girls characters started off in their 40s and 50s.  The last roommate has yet to be cast.  Rounding out the cast is “a naked Gen Z housekeeper”, which sounds like a combination of the short-lived Coco on Golden Girls and Agador in The Birdcage.  The cast will be in good hands as James Burrows has signed on to direct the pilot.
