TV Land says BTTG is a go for July 18 (Bea on Aug 15)

Posted by & filed under News.

Continuing the saga of when Back to the Grind will air this year, TV Land currently lists it as the following ::

Back to the Grind (new series) Wednesday, July 18 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT

This half-hour series takes iconic TV performers — from Loni Anderson to Harry Anderson and other actors not named “Anderson” — and has them perform the real-life version of the jobs their characters held on Classic TV shows like WKRP in Cincinnati and Night Court. Other performers featured include Erik Estrada, Marla Gibbs, Sherman Hemsley, Betty White, Mark Curry, Bea Arthur, Ed Begley Jr. and Jimmie “J.J.” Walker.

UPDATE :: The episode where Bea will appear will air August 15th!

She played a tutor on the “Golden Girls,” but now, Bea Arthur takes on one of the greatest roles of her illustrious career…teaching and tutoring college SAT prep classes for real! Then, “St Elsewhere’s” Ed Begley Jr. recreates his TV job by working at St Joseph’s hospital for a day—with tasks ranging from manning the information booth to serving lunches to his biggest fear—taking blood.

    re Bea and Ed: I believe the latter appeared in Maude’s debut episode, as a phoney ex- Viet-com! Correct me if I’m wrong!

    Looking forward to the show. Bea Arthur was one of my favorite actors ‘back in the day.’ I support her tv comeback and am happy that I”m able to share these events with my kids.
