NEW YORK, April 27 (UPI) -- WE tv said Monday it is planning two special nights of programming to honor U.S. actress Bea Arthur, who died during the weekend at the age of 86.

"WE Remember Bea" will feature marathons of episodes of Arthur's 1980s sit-com "The Golden Girls" Monday afternoon and Thursday night.

"The acclaimed actress, known for her quick wit and willingness to embrace controversial issues was the centerpiece of the comedic series, which won more than 38 awards during its run," WE said in a news release.

"'WE Remember Bea' will be comprised of episodes which center on Bea Arthur's colorful character Dorothy Zbornak and key related storylines from the series."
