LOS ANGELES (NewsNation Now) — Iconic sitcom “The Golden Girls” is being re-imagined with an all-Black cast for a good cause.

Tracee Ellis Ross will play Betty White’s character “Rose;” Regina King will take on Bea Aruther’s “Dorothy;” Sanaa Lathan will play “Blanche,” originally played by Rue McClanahan; and Alfre Woodard plays Estelle Getty’s “Sophia.” Gina Prince-Bythewood directs the episode, and Lena Waithe will host the event.

Ross even advertised the show on her verified Instagram account.

The show airs at 9 p.m. ET Tuesday on “Zoom Where It Happens,” but you’ll have to sign up in advance.
