Golden Years {Stephen King Series}

CBS attempted to change its image as “the old persons’ network” in 1991 when it greenlit Stephen King’s Golden Years, a series about a top secret lab experiment that rapidly de-ages an elderly janitor.  Can the 8 episodes of this prematurely cancelled TV drama find new life edited down into a four hour movie?  And why is Felicity Huffman footing the bill for this afflicted man’s flight from justice, particularly when he no longer qualifies for senior citizen discounts? Get nostalgic for King’s “novel for television” with Now Playing.  Listen now!
