History

The genesis of the show was in the early 1980s. Marcy Carsey and Tom Werner, two former executives at ABC, left the network to start their own production company. .They turned ABC in the late 1970s into the top network in television with their great eye for sitcoms like Mork & Mindy, Three's Company and Welcome Back, Kotter.^ They had three different types and all were like a thick soup.

The two decided in order to get a sitcom to sell for their fledgling company, they needed a big name behind it. .Bill Cosby, who during the 1970s starred in two failed sitcoms, produced award-winning stand-up comedy albums, and had roles in several different films, was relatively quiet during the early 1980s.^ Bill Cosby was the quintessential American Dad in his 1980s hit TV show.

.They loved the routine and decided they wanted to build a television series around a comedian's subject material which, with Cosby, was observations of life and family.^ Reality is though that as we get to know the Obama's (and I trust that they will share their sense of family as freely as Obama shares his sense of himself), the Cosby comparisons will settle, and we'll see the Obama family free of filter or lens.

.After meeting with them, Cosby returned to Carsey and Werner with his own ideas: the family would be blue-collared, with a stay at home mother and a limousine driving father with two sons and two daughters.^ I would also argue that this desire was one of the attractions of the Gravyites, later NOI, and in our own day some of the things that Cosby himself has said in recent years.

Carsey and Werner convinced Cosby to make the family well-off financially, with both parents in lucrative and challenging fields. .That way, the focus of the show would be Cosby's comedic material from his stand-up routines.^ Reply morzer January 27, 2009 1:32 PM Without Roland Burris the Cosby Show would not have been possible.

Overview

.The show focused on the Huxtable family, an upper-middle class African-American family living in a brownstone in Brooklyn Heights, New York, at 10 Stigwood Avenue.^ Where is the Cos’s wrath for the socially bankrupt middle – upper middle class black folks?

^ Ta-Nehisi, there's no doubt that the broad spectrum of black middle class is a territory best explored by actually meeting, knowing, befriending, living with, understanding people who are living the life, but The Cosby Show frames the starting point of many people's fantasy of the Obama family life.

The earliest episodes of the series were videotaped at NBC's Studio One facility in Brooklyn. The network later sold that building, and production moved to the Kaufman Astoria Studios in Queens.
.Although the cast and characters were predominantly African-American, the program was unusual in that issues of race were rarely mentioned when compared to other situation comedies of the time, such as The Jeffersons.^ More African Americans are in poor, desperate living situations, (take Camden, NJ for example, where I lived for a time) and resort to such things as crime to try and get by.

.Seasons 1 and 2 were released by UrbanWorks which was subsequently acquired by First Look Studios, who then released the remaining 6 seasons.^ The first thing I did when I got to the studio today was go to the office of Anthony, a writer on the show and the guy who produces/directs all of my segments.
  • NBC.com > Ross Mathews - BLOGtastic! 21 January 2010 23:023 UTC blog.nbc.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

.Seasons 1 and 2 contain special features including a 90-minute retrospective documentary entitled "The Cosby Show- A Look Back". It contains interviews with cast members, bloopers, deleted scenes and audition footage.^ But at least when I have to go through the whole putting-Obama-in-context exercise, I have to look further afield than Cosby's most recent TV show.

^ I liked the show...but Dr. Cosby was not the first black doctor I knew and the Cosby's marriage was not the first I saw last longer than a season and the Cosby family was not the first black family I saw stay together.

^ Look, I'm not one of those people who thought The Cosby Show wasn't black enough.

In Region 4, Magna Pacific has released all 8 seasons on DVD in Australia and New Zealand. The first two seasons have similar artwork to the North American copies, although season two is red rather than blue. Each Australasian cover also features the tagline "In a house full of love, there is always room for more".
Universal Pictures UK has released Seasons 1–4 in Region 2 (UK). Season 4 was released on February 9, 2009. [1]

Spin-off

.The Cosby Show's producers created a spin-off series called A Different World that was built around the "Denise" character (portrayed by actress Lisa Bonet), the second of the Huxtables' four daughters.^ Rashad, who played Claire Huxtable on the series, flew from London where she is in rehearsal for "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" to be part of the show at Cosby's request.

Denise was written out of A Different World after its inaugural season, due to Bonet's pregnancy, and the following season was revamped, with the addition of director Debbie Allen and new characters. Denise later became a recurring character on The Cosby Show for Seasons 4–5, and a regular again in Seasons 6–7.
