The Jeffersons was an American sitcom broadcasted by CBS from 1975 through 1985 and was produced by the legendary Norman Lear and Embassy TV (formerly TAT/Tandem) who are also known for “One Day At A Time”, “Maude”, “All in the Family”, “Sanford and Son”, and “Good Times”. Originally a spin-off from the sitcom “All in the Family”, The Jefferson’s “moved on up” to the Upper East Side of Manhattan and began living as an affluent black family. The series ran for 11 seasons with a total 253 episodes, making The Jefferson’s one of the longest running sitcoms in US history. The show is also noted for its controversial topics including racism, suicide, and gun control, which was taboo for syndicated television in the 1970’s. The show was nominated for 13 Emmy awards, and actress Isabel Sanford who played Louise, won Best Actress in 1981. This item is in good screen worn condition and was acquired directly from the show’s costume designer and head of the Embassy TV wardrobe department.
