This William S. Paley Television Festival seminar honors iGolden Girlsi, a sitcom about four older women - two widows, a divorcee, and her mother - who share a home in Miami and help each other cope with growing older and being single again.pPaley Center television curator Ron Simon moderates the panel discussion, which features Creator Susan Harris; writers Marc Cherry, Mitchell Hurwitz, and James Vallely; Director Terry Hughes; Executive Producer Paul Junger Witt; and cast members Rue McClanahan and Betty White.pPanelists discuss the shows renewed success after two decades; the shows meaning; how the show defined loneliness; programs such as iDesperate Housewivesi and iArrested Developmenti that are now written by Cherry and Hurwitz; how their work on iGolden Girlsi benefited those shows; how exposition was subtly handled on the show; how White almost got cast as Blanche; why todays youths like the show; how each woman got cast; and the shows ill-fated spin-off, iGolden Palacei.pAudience questions lead to a discussion of how a balance between each of the four characters was struck; what each character represented; and the shows influence.
