Charlie & Co. Edit

Charlie & Co. (also known as Charlie & Company) is an American sitcom that originally aired on CBS from September 18, 1985 to May 16, 1986. Created by Allan Katz, the series starred Flip Wilson and Gladys Knight. Charlie & Co. is regarded as CBS's answer to The Cosby Show, which was a ratings success for NBC at the time. Unlike The Cosby Show, which ran for eight seasons, Charlie & Co. lasted for only one.

PremiseEdit

The series followed a middle-class African American family that lived on the South Side of Chicago.

Charlie Richmond (Flip Wilson), a black middle-class family employee of the Division of Highways, who juggled his work and home life with his lovely wife, Diana, a schoolteacher played by Gladys Knight. The couple had three children: sixteen-year-old Junior (Kristoff St. John), fifteen-year-old Lauren (Fran Robinson) and nine-year-old Robert (Jaleel White).

Della Reese joined the cast during the latter half of the first season as Charlie's sister, Aunt Rachel.

CBS canceled the series in May 1986.
