All About Us

Show Summary

Welcome to the All About Us guide at This entry in the TNBC Saturday morning lineup debuted without a whole lot of publicity about a month before the regular 2001 fall season began. The teenage "dramady" follows the fast friendship of four high school girls in Chicago with varied personalities and from different backgrounds. Alecia is a transplanted Alabamian whose passion is music and who wants to sing more than anything else. Niki is from a well-to-do family and enjoys the lifestyle of the rich--and boys--very much. Sierra is an idealist fervently committed to the causes she believes in and has a talent for organizing. Finally, Cris, usually called by her last name Castelli, is the athlete of the group and comes from an Italian-American family which runs its own restaurant. Alecia Elliott, who plays Alecia, is a natural in her role as a singer. As a teenager, she's already gained critical and popular acclaim as a country singer. Unfortunately, All About Us never made much of a splash in the TV world, though to be fair NBC did little to help promote it or any of the rest of their TNBC lineup in the 2001-02 TV season. There were only 13 episodes of the show that were broadcast. We were hoping that, like with other TNBC shows in the past, this was the first part of a regular 26-episode season that had been split in half with the rest to come later, but there is no evidence that there are any additional episodes of AAU. The last new episode, "New Girl in Town," premiered on November 10, 2001, just three months after the show's debut. It continued in reruns for the rest of the season, but during that time it was learned that NBC planned to replace its TNBC lineup with Discovery Channel for Kids programming when the fall 2002 season began. So on September 28, 2002, All About Us, along with City Guys, Just Deal and Skate, made its final appearance. The last broadcast was the sixth repeat of the episode "Sierra Meets Her Match." Theme song lyrics: To get the lyrics of the longer version of the theme song that Alecia sang in the episode "New Girl in Town," click on "Episode List" on the upper left-hand side of this page, then click on the episode's name. It's in the "Notes" section. BTW, Marieh Delfino's first name isn't pronounced like Mariah Carey's. It's "Mah-ree-yay." It rhymes with "Perrier."moreless
