To gear up for Fame
, which is in theaters September 25th
and stars Naturi Naughton
, you might want to brush up on your history and pick up the first two seasons of the television series on DVD.
The series was a spin off from the Oscar winning movie of the same name. It ran for six seasons from 1982 to 1986, following the lives of talented students at the New York City High School for the Performing Arts, based on Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in New York. The 38 episodes are packed onto nine discs with seasons 1 (16 episodes) and 2 (22 episodes). Debbie Allen
, who was also in the film, transitioned to the television series and so did Gene Anthony Ray
, who played Leroy.
The DVD also includes "Fame: Then and Now" featurette. You can pick it up in stores today!
