According to Lynch (after winning the Emmy for guest actress in a comedy (for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”).

“I pitched a show to Netflix and they bought it. I don’t know if I can even tell you, but it’s with Cyndi Lauper, so there! We’ll see.”


“We’re our age, 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. But its kind of a ‘Golden Girls’ for today.”

Nothing has been confirmed or denied by Netflix themselves. But what do you think of this news? Is it something you would watch?
