Hallmark Sets Bea Arthur/"Golden Girls" Tribute

By admin Published: April 27, 2009

Here's the gist:
Hallmark Channel announces it will pay tribute to legendary star Bea Arthur, who passed away ... at her home in Los Angeles, with a “Golden Girls” Memorial Day Marathon (Monday, May 25 (6:30 a.m. – 2:30 a.m.), featuring episodes focusing on Arthur’s character Dorothy Zbornak, a gruff, wise-cracking divorcée who shared her Miami home with her mother and two loopy friends. ...

Henry Schleiff, President and CEO, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel HD, said, “It is impossible to overstate Bea Arthur’s impact on TV culture. She is actually one of a handful of comediennes who genuinely altered the direction of the medium in which she starred.

“‘Golden Girls’ is a recent acquisition for Hallmark Channel, and though it was first broadcast 25 years ago, the classic series has the most dedicated fans and strikes gold wherever it plays. It became an instant hit on our network.

“Putting an entire day of Dorothy-centric stories on Memorial Day allows Hallmark Channel the opportunity to truly memorialize this immensely talented, unapologetic, and incomparably adept star Bea Arthur. To all the “Golden Girls,” we say, ‘thank you for being a friend.’” ...

“Golden Girls” plays daily on Hallmark Channel [Monday-Friday, 8-10 a.m., 7-9 p.m., 12-2 a.m., Saturdays 6-9 a.m., Sundays 8:30-10 a.m.].
