TV One digs into the societal impact of the iconic and groundbreaking 70s TV show, The Jeffersons, during an episode of Unsung: Hollywood airing Sunday, Oct. 22.
The Jeffersons broke the mold when it hit TV screens in 1975. The show featured a successful, upscale, Black family, and the show touched on a number of social issues including racism, interracial marriage, inner city violence, poverty, sexuality and much more.
The show ran for 11 seasons and ranked in the Top 10 or better for much of its run.
TV One’s Jubba Seyyid, senior director of programming and production says, “This is one of those episodes of Unsung Hollywood where you’ll laugh, cry and learn.”
