About the Show

Fame is an American television drama series created by Christopher Gore and based on the 1980 motion picture of the same name. Using a mixture of drama and music, it followed the lives of the students and faculty at the New York City High School for the Performing Arts.

Although fictional, it was based heavily on the actual Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in New York.

The series aired in the USA on NBC (1982-1983) and later in syndication (1983-1987). There are 136 hour-long episodes in six seasons.

The series originally aired in South Africa on the old SABC channels in the 1980s. It later premiered on TopTV's Fox Retro channel on Monday 3 May 2010, at 14h30. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 6 premiered on Fox Retro on Thursday 8 September 2011, at 14h15. New episodes broadcast daily, on weekdays. There are 24 episodes in the sixth and final season.

Synopsis

The Art School was always their dream.They want to dance, they want to sing, to play music, to act but above all they want to live their lives while they are still young and full of energy.

Leroy, Danny, Jesse, Chris, Coco and all the others try hard because they know that they've got a long way to go till they reach fame and riches.

Fame costs and here (the Art School) is where they start paying for it.
