"[A] real, and lighthearted, look at race relations and stereotypes....The social commentary resonates."
Created as a spin-off of Norman Lear's revolutionary sitcom ALL IN THE FAMILY, The Jeffersons ran on CBS-TV from 1975 to 1983, with a run of over 250 episodes. The program details the comic exploits of short-tempered African-American dry cleaning magnate George Jefferson (Sherman Hemsley) and his sassy wife Louise "Weezy" as they move from their blue-collar neighborhood to a deluxe apartment on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Adding to the fun is their back-talking maid Florence and a cast of colorful supporting characters. This 2-disc set contains all thirteen episodes from the ground breaking first season of this historic television comedy, which smashed stereotypes and ignored social conventions as it made audiences laugh.
