Comedian and former “Glee” star Jane Lynch, music icon Cyndi Lauper, and writer and comedian Carol Leifer (“Seinfeld”) are teaming for a new comedy series they they describe as “kind of a ‘Golden Girls’ for today”.
Lynch let the news slip backstage at the Creative Arts Emmys, indicating she and Lauper will co-star in the series with Leifer executive producing.
Lynch also indicated Netflix will produce and air it: “I pitched a show to Netflix and they bought it. I don’t know if I can even tell you, but it’s with Cyndi Lauper, so there! We’ll see.” She adds that there will be two other people who haven’t been cast yet.
