  • Sister, Sister first aired in April 1994 as a mid-season replacement on ABC, and continued on that network until the series moved to the WB in the fall of 1995. The series centered around twin girls, separated at birth, who suddenly found each other after 14 years. Tia Landry was the studious twin from Detroit, where her mom Lisa worked as a seamstress; Tamera Campbell was the boy-crazy twin from the suburbs, where her dad Ray owned a limousine service. After their unexpected encounter in a department store, Ray reluctantly allowed Tia and Lisa to move into his home for the girls' sake. The girls' neighbor was Roger Evans, an annoying kid who had a crush on them both.In the 1997-1998 season, Tia started dating Tyreke Scott, a reformed street kid who worked as a mechanic for Ray, and Jordan Bennett became Tamera's boyfriend. Roger was suddenly dropped from the cast at this point.The final season showed the twins entering college with their beaux. The girls were ultimately reunited with their birth father, and Lisa married her boyfriend Victor in the final episode.Characters:Tia is a all American bookworm. She is one of the smartest kids at her school.Tamera totally huge party animal. Her IQ is low but she seems to manage well. And by the way, she is a big fan of Coolio's music.
