(SNN) NBC executives are gleeful they have finally found a property that may replace the success they had with their much-Emmyed hit ‘Golden Girls’ which ended its run in 1992 after seven years.

“We are very excited at the opportunity this material presents to us,” said NBC spokesman Skip Toumalou. “It is similar enough to ‘Golden Girls’ to attract the same demographic but different enough to satisfy their appetite for television that features strong female roles for older women.”

The source material NBC is negotiating the rights for is to a series of plays produced by a tiny community theatre group from Western Canada known as the Calmar Prairie Players.  A sample of one of the plays is available here:

It is not known how much the network is offering for the property but it is rumored to be in the tens of dollars. Toumalou says the first episodes will be ready for the new fall season if they can complete the rights deal quickly.
