"We need to recap the groundbreaking series," tweeted Allen.
The iconic TV sitcom A Different World is nearing its 25th anniversary this October, and director Debbie Allen thinks it’s time to “recap the groundbreaking series.”
“We need to revisit this wonder arena and get my crew back,” she tweeted, adding that a show like it is “missed in TV today.”
“Can I get an Amen?” she wrote. “I get enough amen’s maybe Bill Cosby, Marcy, and Tom will let us put Hillman back on the block.”
A Different World was a Cosby Show spinoff that aired on NBC from 1987 to 1993 and soon became the #2 ranked show in African-American households, according to the Museum of Broadcast Communications. Allen based most of the show on her days at Howard University.
