Classic TV and historical TV. While set in Chicago, in what many presumed to be the old Cabrini-Green housing project, the show never had an episode filmed here.
Good Times ran for six seasons on CBS, from February 8, 1974 to August 1, 1979.
The show was television’s first African American two-parent family sitcom.
The show was a spin-off of Maude which was a spin-off of All in the Family. Guest stars and co-stars like Janet Jackson got their start on the show.
