OLD GUY | Five Sisters Productions | US | 2020 | 25m | Starring Roger Burton & Peri Gilpin

Old Guy is a six-episode comedy series on ageism in the media. Harry, played by Roger Burton, is going back to acting later in life, after raising his family and retiring from his traditional job.

The show looks at his relationships with his wife, played by his real-life spouse Gabrielle Burton, who is a writer and tries to advise him on the value of the jobs he takes, and with his agent, Peri Gilpin, who is more interested in her commission than in what types of roles he plays. In each episode, Harry is challenged by playing an undeveloped character type which humorously highlights different stereotypes about old age. OLD GUY will make you laugh, and make you think.
