  • The Jeffersons is an American sitcom that was broadcast on CBS from January 18, 1975, through July 2, 1985, lasting 11 seasons and a total of 253 episodes. The show was produced by the T.A.T. Communications Company from 1975 to 1982 and by Embassy Television from 1982 to 1985. The Jeffersons is one of the longest-running sitcoms in the history of American television. The show focuses on George and Louise Jefferson, a successful African-American couple who have moved from Queens to Manhattan following the success of George's dry-cleaning business chain. The show was launched as the second spin-off of All in the Family, on which the Jeffersons had been the neighbors of Archie and Edith Bunker. The show was the creation of Norman Lear. The Jeffersons eventually evolved into more of a traditional sitcom but did reference such issues as alcoholism, racism, suicide, gun control and adult illiteracy. The epithets "nigger" and "honky" were used occasionally, especially during the earlier seasons. The Jeffersons had one spin-off, titled Checking In. The series was centered on the Jeffersons' housekeeper, Florence. Checking In only lasted four episodes, after which Florence returned to The Jeffersons. The Jeffersons also shared continuity with the show E/R, which featured Lynne Moody, who made a guest appearance in one episode of The Jeffersons as George's niece. Sherman Hemsley guest-starred as George in two episodes of the series, which lasted for one season. The show ended in controversy after CBS abruptly canceled the series without allowing for a proper series finale. The cast was not informed until after the July 2, 1985, episode "Red Robins", and actor Sherman Hemsley said he found out that the show was canceled by reading it in the newspaper. Sanford, who heard about the cancellation through her cousin who read about it in the tabloids, has publicly stated that she found the cancellation with no proper finale to be disrespectful on the network's part. The cast reunited in a stage play based on the sitcom. In the 1996 series finale of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, the Jeffersons made a guest appearance and bought the house from the Banks family. In an episode of Tyler Perry's House of Payne in 2011, Sherman Hemsley and Marla Gibbs reprised their roles of George Jefferson and Florence Johnston. In 1985, Hemsley and Sanford made a special joint guest appearance in the Canale 5 comedy show Grand Hotel, starring Italian actors Paolo Villaggio, Franco & Ciccio comic duo and Carmen Russo. They were guests in the fictional hotel, and appeared just twice during the show, for a total of five minutes. Their voices were dubbed by Italian actors Enzo Garinei (George) and Isa di Marzio (Louise), who also dubbed their characters for the full series. (en)

  • I Jefferson (The Jeffersons) è una sit-com, prodotta negli USA dal 1975 al 1985. Fu il secondo dei 4 spin-off della serie tv Arcibaldo (All in the Family), dopo Maude e prima di Archie Bunker's Place (che in Italia continuò a chiamarsi Arcibaldo) e 704 Hauser. La serie ebbe a sua volta uno spin-off (chiuso dopo solo 4 puntate), Checking In, incentrato sulla figura della domestica Florence che lascia casa Jefferson per gestire il St. Frederick Hotel a Manhattan. La serie venne ideata dal prolifico autore e produttore televisivo Norman Lear. A differenza di altri suoi show, il telefilm aveva connotati politici più smorzati nei toni, evolvendo presto in una più tradizionale sitcom a sfondo comico. Tuttavia, alcuni episodi della serie contengono riferimenti a tematiche e problematiche importanti come il razzismo, il suicidio, l'analfabetismo e la diffusione incontrollata delle armi. Inoltre, spesso viene usata la parola "negro" ("nigger"), specialmente durante le prime stagioni. La serie I Jefferson si è conclusa dopo 11 stagioni e 253 episodi, tra le polemiche, quando la dirigenza della CBS optò per la sua cancellazione a causa del calo degli ascolti dopo l'undicesima stagione, che rimase così senza un preciso finale, come invece accade nella maggior parte delle sitcom. Il cast non venne informato dell'improvvisa chiusura del programma (che negli Stati Uniti avvenne il 25 giugno 1985, con l'episodio Red Robins), e l'attore Sherman Hemsley dichiarò che apprese della cancellazione dello show solo leggendolo sul giornale. In Italia è stata trasmessa da Canale 5 dal 20 febbraio 1984 al 22 maggio 1987; in seguito le repliche sono state trasmesse su Rete 4, sul canale Fox Retro e su K2 e altri canali. (it)

  • «Джефферсоны» (англ. The Jeffersons) — длительный американский комедийный телесериал, который транслировался на канале CBS с 18 января 1975 года по 25 июня 1985 года. В центре сюжета находилась богатая семейная пара афро-американцев Джордж и Луиза Джефферсоны (Шерман Хемсли и Изабель Санфорд), которая жила в Нью-Йорке. «Джефферсоны» является спин-оффом ситкома «Все в семье», в котором впервые появились главные герои сериала. Просуществовав одиннадцать сезонов, сериал вошел в историю как самая продолжительная комедия на американском телевидении с полностью чёрным актёрским составом. На самом же деле проект является первым и одним из трёх успешных сериалов и истории телевидения с афро-американцами в центре сюжета. Сериал имел успех в телевизионных рейтингах на протяжении почти всего периода показа. Пик популярности пришелся на восьмой сезон, когда сериал занял третью строчку годовой рейтинговой таблицы, после «Далласа» и «60 минут». Также проект был отмечен рядом премий, включая четырнадцать номинаций и две победы на «Эмми», семь из которых принадлежат Изабель Санфорд в категории за лучшую женскую роль в комедийном телесериале. Санфорд стала первой и единственной чёрной актрисой, выигравшей «Эмми» в данной категории в истории. Кроме этого сериал восемь раз выдвигался на премию «Золотой глобус», пять из которых опять же были для Санфорд. (ru)
