The Golden Globe winning actress has assembled an all-star cast for a special imagining of the hit sitcom.
Embracing the power of the internet, the ‘Black-ish’ star has called on some of Black Hollywood’s leading ladies – namely Academy Award winner Regina King, Alfre Woodard, and Sanaa Lathan – to perform their own take on classic show on Zoom.
A description of the refreshed version, which premieres tonight (Sept 8) at 6/9 ET read:
“We bring to you our rendition of Golden Girls, reimagined with an all-Black cast of your favorite actresses: Alfre Woodard, Tracee Ellis Ross, Sanaa Lathan, and Regina King, directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood and hosted by Lena Waithe.
This event is in partnership with Zoom, and the first episode is spotlighting and supporting Color of Change — the nation’s largest online racial justice organization.
