After Jane Lynch let it slip backstage at the Creative Arts Emmys that she and Cyndi Lauper will share the screen together, the internet is in a tizzy! According to the “Hollywood Game Night” host, the two will co-star in a comedy described as “kind of a ‘Golden Girls’ for today” that may be headed to Netflix.
“I pitched a show to Netflix and they bought it,” Lynch told reporters after winning the Emmy for guest actress in a comedy for her appearance on “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” “I don’t know if I can even tell you, but it’s with Cyndi Lauper, so there! We’ll see.”
According to Variety, writer and comedian Carol Leifer (“Seinfeld”) is set to be a part of the show as well. “It’s official, heading out next with a new half-hour comedy, starring Jane Lynch and Cyndi Lauper,” Leifer wrote in a Facebook post in July. “A writer’s dream to work with these two legends. Can’t wait to see where we land.”
“We’re our age,” Lynch added. “I’m almost 60 and she’s 65, and we’re looking for our next act, without ever having had husbands of children. And there will be two other people who haven’t been cast yet.”
