TV Series
    (September 22, 1992-August 30, 1997)
    Originally aired on ABC
    Mark Curry as Mark Cooper
    Holly Robinson Peete as Vanessa Russell (seasons 1-3)
    Raven-Symone as Nicole Lee (seasons 2-5)
    Marquise Wilson as Tyler Foster (seasons 2-5)

    Premise: A former NBA player goes back to his hometown to teach and has adventures with his many companions and family
    Set in Oakland, California (Curry's hometown)
    Curry probably used this as a second career choice after his failure with the Golden State Warriors.
    Much of the cast was changed after the first season.
    The theme song was changed three times in the first three seasons.
    One of them was Sam and Dave's 'Soul Man.'
    Some thought of it as a 'black Full House' (since both series were set in the San Francisco Bay Area).
    For a time, it was aired right after 'Step by Step.'
    Its final episodes were aired on Saturdays (including the finale which was pre-empted by the news of Princess Diana Spencer's sudden death).
    The series often paid homage to the Bay Area.
    Despite it being panned by critics, it lasted five seasons.
    The Olsen Twins made a brief cameo in one episode.
    It was one of the most successful comedies with a primarily black cast since 'The Cosby Show.'
    It revived Holly Robinson Peete's career after '21 Jump Street.'
