What’s it about
Fans of The Jeffersons, rejoice! All 253 episodes of the classic sitcom developed by Norman Lear (All in the Family, Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman) have finally arrived on DVD in The Jeffersons: The Complete Series.
Originally airing from 1975 to 1985, The Jeffersons documented the side-splitting exploits of an upwardly-mobile family: dry cleaning entrepreneur George (Sherman Hemsley), his wife Louise (Emmy winner Isabel Sanford), and their son Lionel, as they move from the working-class section of Queens to a luxury apartment in Manhattan. George¡¯s brash, arrogant personality always seems to get him in hot water. Lucky for him, he¡¯s got the level-headed “Weezy”, by his side and their wise-cracking maid Florence (Marla Gibbs) to keep him humble. Together, they overcome the comic challenges and culture clashes that their new way of life brings.
Featuring a terrific supporting cast (including Paul Benedict, Roxie Roker, and Franklin Cover), memorable guest appearances (Sammy Davis, Jr., Gladys Knight, Reggie Jackson, Billy Dee Williams and more) and of course, one of the catchiest theme songs in television history, The Jeffersons: The Complete Series is another must-own sitcom classic from your friends at Shout! Factory.
