The Jeffersons: The Complete First Season
Beloved by fans and critics alike, the Emmy-winning CBS series The Jeffersons is
one of the most highly-rated and longest running sitcoms in TV history, spanning a
decade (1975 - 1985) with over 250 episodes during its remarkable run. A spin-off
from the seminal "All In The Family" series, the ground-breaking The Jeffersons
chronicled the rise of jive-talking African-American dry-cleaner king George Jefferson
(Emmy-nominee Sherman Helsley) and his sassy, no-nonsense wife Louise "Weezy"
Emmy winner Isabel Sanford), as they left their blue-collar neighborhood, "movin' on up"
to a luxury high-rise apartment in New York City. In the process, the series changed the face
of prime-time TV comedy, smashing sterotypes while serving up outrageous laughs.
