The Golden GirlsOh, WHAT?!

Us Square Eyes ladies love us some Golden Girls, which is why we were pleased as punch to hear the following news.

Turkey is remaking the beloved U.S. sitcom!  Following a deal with Disney-ABC-ESPN Television, Play Productions will be releasing a 13-part Golden Girls miniseries with a Turkish twist.

The show will star feature film actress Hulya Kocyigit as Dorothy, theater actress Nevra Serezli as Blanche, former politician and actress Fatma Girik as Sophia, and high-profile actress Turkan Soray as Rose.  Dunno who any of those babes are, but I’m sure they’re awesome!

The studio will also be adapting According to Jim and Hope & Faith.  Whatevs.

Back to the Girls.  I’m really curious to hear what kind of cultural amendments will be made to the series to make it Turkishly relevant.  Will the Girls trade their cheesecake in for baklava?  Will Rose’s stories start with “Back in the Ottoman Empire…” in lieu of St. Olaf?  Will “Thank You For Being a Friend” be translated into Turkish?

We’ll have to wait and see.  Just promise you’ll stay golden, Turkish Golden Girls.
