The Righteous Apples

Show Summary

Welcome to The Righteous Apples guide at TV.com. This comedy-drama series aired for two seasons of ten episodes each season on PBS in 1980-1982. It chronicles The Righteous Apples, an ethnically diverse teen aged rock band at Sherman High School in the Boston area. This series was unconventional for a comedy series because it also dealt with serious topics like race issues and abortion. A special one hour episode (titled Silver City) taking the singing group to Hollywood aired in 1982 on Nickelodeon cable.

The series was re-broadcast many times on the SHOWTIME cable network later on during the 80's.

An album of songs from the series Righteous Apples - St. (82) (Righteous Apples Records) was solicited in advertising during the 80's and was mailed out to buyers.

Several regulars including Mykelti Williamson and E. G. Daily went on to successful careers.

Guest stars included pre-Miami's Vice Phillip Michael Thomas and a very young Kim Fields.
