Peri Gilpin and The Burton Sisters of Old Guy

TVC 500.4: Ed welcomes Peri Gilpin, the award-winning actress known around the world as acerbic radio producer Roz Doyle on Frasier (NBC, 1993-2004). Peri currently stars as a Hollywood agent who eagerly takes on a client in his eighties—only to cast him in a host of less than dignified roles—in Old Guy, the critically acclaimed six-episode short form comedy series that takes a satiric look at how the film and TV industry often portrays older people, particularly those in their seventies and eighties. All six episodes of Old Guy are available for streaming on demand, for free, at OldGuyComedy.com.

Old Guy is based on both Don’t Sit Down Yet, a book by Gabrielle Burton about aging, and on the experiences of Gabrielle’s husband, Roger Burton, a retired psychologist and former professional musician who enjoyed a wildly successful third act in his seventies and eighties as a film and TV actor. With that in mind, the creators and producers of Old Guy—Gabrielle and Roger’s daughters Ursula Burton, Jennifer Burton, Maria Burton, Gabrielle Burton, and Charity Burton—also join Peri and Ed to discuss how the series uses both sharp wit and broad humor to address and comment on the ongoing issue of ageism.
