The Redd Foxx Show

Show Summary

What happens when you take the hilarious comedy of Redd Foxx, and give it an "80's twist"? You get The Redd Foxx Show, a short-lived sitcom which aired on ABC in 1986. The Redd Foxx Show follows the life of Al Hughes (Redd Foxx), a newsstand owner who adopts a "street-wise" teenager named Toni (Pamela Segall). Along with Al is Diana (Rosanna DeSoto), who works with Al in the newsstand, and Jim-Jam (Nathaniel Taylor, Teddy Wilson), who also owns a newsstand of his own. Everything seems to be going fine for Al, but as the show went on, Toni "disappeared", and in came his ex-wife Felicia (Beverly Todd) and his son, Byron (Sinbad). Unfortunately, the show lasted only 4 months. Theme Song Lyrics Written and Performed by: Kool & The Gang On the street...the heart of the city. Life sometimes...ain't so pretty.
