Slightly more family-friendly than the 1980 cult classic, the Fame series shares the original movie's "lets-put-on-a-show" exuberance and thrill of performance. It also shares some key original cast members, principally Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Debbie Allen as Lydia Grant, the demanding dance teacher at New York's prestigious School of the Arts. Albert Hague reprises his screen role as curmudgeonly music teacher Benjamin Shorofsky, as do the late Gene Anthony Ray as untrained dance sensation Leroy Johnson and Lee Curreri as musical prodigy Bruno Martelli.

Standouts in the ensemble include Erica Gimpel as diva Coco Hernandez (played by Irene Cara in the original film), Carlo Imperato as aspiring stand-up comedian Danny, Valerie Landsburg as spunky, wisecracking Doris Schwartz, and Carol Mayo Jenkins as the tough but compassionate English teacher Elizabeth Sherwood.

The Frank Sinatra Shows is a variety, music and drama series, starring Frank Sinatra. Sinatra perform songs and sketches with his guests.
