We don’t mean to be a downer, but, one day, you and everyone you’ve ever known is going to die. But before that happens, we’re all going to be old, and what will we watch on TV? We mean, besides CBS? Luckily, the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) is addressing that issue now so that we’ll have someone to make that octogenarian Vampire Diaries reunion show when we’re living out our golden years. According to a report from Deadline, AARP has launched a new production studio, aptly name AARP Studios, and they’ve announced their first show: Dinner With Don. The ten episode series will feature legendary comedian Don Rickles having dinner at his favorite restaurants in the Los Angeles area — presumably all Old Country Buffet franchise locations — with stars including Billy Crystal, Robert De Niro, Jimmy Kimmel, Amy Poehler, Vince Vaughn, Paul Rudd, Marisa Tomei, and Martin Scorsese.
“AARP Studios is all about telling real and relatable stories driven by great characters,” said AARP Studos head Jefferey Eagle. “In creating a show with Don Rickles, we give viewers a seat at the table and the chance to hear decades of great show business stories from one of the most celebrated comedians of all time.”
Below, see an EXCLUSIVE clip from the show:
A premiere date for Dinner With Don is expected to be announced sometime soon, but we can assume the show will air at dinner time. So, 3PM.
