- TV. Watch. Repeat. -Our Podcast Dives Into The History-Making '90s Comedy, 'Living Single'
It's hard to believe — with the bevy of young-singles comedies on television today — that young working professionals were once ignored by the small screen. Then, in 1993, Living Single came along and changed all that — and so much more. The series, created by Yvette Lee Bowser and starring an ensemble cast of comedy legends, not only broke barriers for women of color on TV, but also went on to inspire an entire genre of television.
The series is the focus of this week's episode of TV. Watch. Repeat., in which my co-host Allison Piwowarski and I discuss the incredible cast of the show — which included Queen Latifah, Kim Fields, Kim Coles, and Erika Alexander — the significance of the series' concept, and how marketing (or lack thereof) failed Living Single.
