It’s the team-up that fans didn’t know they needed. Black-ish‘s own Tracee Ellis Ross announced on social media that she would be taking part in an all-Black cast version of the beloved comedy series The Golden Girls for a special rendition over Zoom. The video that Ross shared shows herself, Regina King, Alfre Woodard, and Sanaa Latha photoshopped over the original cast. Ross as Rose, King as Dorothy, Woodard as Sophia, and Lathan as Blanche. Those iconic roles were originally played by Betty White, Bea Arthur, Estelle Getty, and Rue McClanahan, respectively.

The event “takes a look back to the sitcoms of yesteryear- Before you could pause your screens or binge-watch” and will be directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood and hosted by Lena Waithe. All fans need to do to enjoy the evening is sign up to receive messages about how they can make a change during this upcoming election. In partnership with Zoom, this episode spotlights and supports Color of Change – the nation’s largest online racial justice organization.

The special event takes place tomorrow, September 8, at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT in Zoom. More information can be found here.
