The Motion Picture and Television Fund's Wasserman Campus is a retirement home for veterans of the entertainment industry. Former Hollywood actors, producers, writers and technicians live here surrounded by quirky topiaries and fancy facilities named for famous donors. But these folks aren't just sitting around with fading memories of past script deadlines and premieres. The campus has its own in-house TV channel with original shows created, written by and starring the elderly residents. One favorite: "The Roaring 90s," a talk show like "The View" -- but with women in their nineties.
