South Central

Show Summary

South Central was a serio-comic series about the struggles of a family residing in South Central Los Angeles. Joan Mosely, an independent-minded single mother, must find a way to make ends meet while still keeping a close eye on her teenage children, Andre and Tasha. In addition, she has taken in Deion, a five-year-old foster child with special needs: he was born addicted to crack and does not speak. Already reeling from the recent death of eldest son Marcus in a gang-related shooting, the Moselys are dealt another blow when Joan is laid off from her job at the school district. She is forced to take a minimum wage job at a local co-op. A critically acclaimed but extremely short-lived series, South Central is now perhaps best remembered as one of the earliest acting roles for Jennifer Lopez, who had a recurring role as Joan's co-worker at the co-op.
