topic:The Father Of The Black TV Sitcom: An Interview With Eric Monte
Artivist Writes: Listen Now to the man who created Good Times, The Jeffersons, Sanford & Son, What's Happening, The Cosby Show and the classic movie Cooley High based on his life tell it like it is in this exclusive on W.E. A.L.L. B.E. Radio!!! One ♥!
ERIC MONTE’S STORY I created the television show “Good Times,” the characters George and Louise Jefferson of “The Jeffersons.” I also wrote the movie “Cooley High,” upon which the television show, “What’s Happening?” was based, not to mention that I created the television show, “The Cosby Show." “Cooley High” was made for $750 thousand dollars and grossed over $100 million in the box office. All those things were block buster hits and made people hundreds of millions of dollars but yet I ended up living in a homeless shelter because I was cheated out of all the money those things made because of my ignorance and race.
