[ # ] Get to know all about The Jeffersons on Unsung tonight!
October 22nd, 2017 under Marla Gibbs, TV One

If you are as big as a fan of The Jeffersons, then you going to want to watch Unsung on TV One tonight at 10p. You will learn more about the groundbreaking show than you ever knew.

The episode features past interviews with the late Sherman Hemsley (George) and Isabel Sanford (Weezie) and new revelations from Marla Gibbs (Florence), Norman Lear (creator), Berlinda Tolbert (Jenny), Don B. Welch and Ernest L. Thomas (What’s Happening!!).

You will learn things like which cast member did not want to leave All In The Family and what was said to convince them go. How Lear found his George Jefferson in Hemsley and how many seasons the producer extraordinaire had to wait for him to finally become the iconic character. Talking about iconic, how did that George Jefferson walk come about? The answer is surprising. Almost as much as which of the show’s stars actually kept their job at an airline for several seasons and how the producers finally got them to quit. How Roxie Roker (Helen) reacted when they told her she was going to have to kiss a White man on the show? Did you know even ever after Zara Cully (Mama Jefferson) was diagnosed with lung cancer, she still wanted to be on the show. She remained on the series until her death in 1978. These are just a few of the many interesting tidbits you will learn about one of the greatest television shows ever created.

I have seen every episode at least 10 times and it never gets old. I will find myself having a new laugh every time I watch them. After viewing this Unsung, I want to rewatch the series again because I will be looking at it with different eyes and you will too.
