GOLDEN GIRLS FOREVER

An Unauthorized Look Behind the Lanai

By Jim Colucci

On sale: April 5, 2016

This spring Harper Design will publish GOLDEN GIRLS FOREVER: An Unauthorized Look Behind the Lanai (on sale: April 5, 2016; 368 pages; more than 230 color and black & white photos throughout; $35.00; ISBN: 9780062422903) by Jim Colucci, the first ever complete retrospective of the legendary TV sitcom featuring exclusive interviews with the cast and crew.

A treasure trove of must-see, behind-the-scenes material for the millions of fans worldwide, GOLDEN GIRLS FOREVER is an all-inclusive look at the beloved series, allowing readers to peer behind the cameras to trace the show’s journey from its inception to its enduring legacy with new generations.

The book also features synopses of beloved episodes; exclusive interviews with the show’s creators, actors, guest stars, producers, writers, and crew members; and a section of “Why I Love the Girls” commentary from such celebrities such as Laverne Cox, Zachary Quinto, and Perez Hilton. Also included are stills from the show, set design and costume design snapshots, and many never-before-seen photos. The result is a comprehensive depiction of The Golden Girls both in front of the cameras and backstage.

No retrospective of The Golden Girls would be complete without interviews with the stars themselves. Among GOLDEN GIRLS FOREVER’s gems are exclusive and revealing interviews with stars since departed, including one of the last interviews with the famously private Bea Arthur (1922-2009) and Rue McClanahan (1934-2010). Jim Colucci’s interview with the now 94-year-old Betty White rounds out this unprecedented look at the series.
