Gladdy Gold

Created by Rita Lakin

"Never trust anyone under seventy-five."

-- the Gladdy Gold Detective Agency motto

Feisty septagenarian GLADDY GOLD is a Florida retiree who's not planning to go quietly anywhere, thankyouverymuch, in this gently comic PBO series. With her sister Evvie and several of their eccentric Fort Lauderdale retirement community buddies, she runs the Gladdy Gold Detective Agency. Any similarities to television's The Golden Girls are, of course, entirely and completely coincidental.

Edgar winner Rita Lakin is a television writer (another coincidence!), having written for such television programs as Peyton Place, Mod Squad and Dynasty, as well as creating original series such as The Rookies.


  • "Beyond the skillful blend of Yiddish humor, affectionate characters and serious undercurrents... the simple story picks up speed and flavor with some twists worthy of Agatha Christie's archetypal dame detective, Miss Marple."

-- Publisher's Weekly on Getting Old is Criminal
