When Diff'rent Strokes became an instant hit, it was also at the time one of NBC's few viable series. As a result,Fred Silverman believed that the network could capitalize from a Diff'rent Strokes spin off.

I LOVE THE FACTS OF LIFE!!!!!!! It is my favorite show in the whole world! My favorite characters are Blair (Lisa Whelchel) and Jo (Nancy McKeon). I have almost every single episode taped, so that shows you how much I like it! If you are ever having problems, you can watch one of these episodes, and I always feel better right away, because the show covers real life problems that real teenagers would have.
