I LOVE Fame.
15 September 2001 | by (London/England) – See all my reviews

Of course, Fame the TV show is not patch on the classic Fame movie, but this show is still really good. With the same plot as the movie, the show follows the stories of the students and faculty at New York City's High School for the Performing Arts. If you enjoyed the brilliant movie and the just as brilliant West-End musical production of Fame, then I'm sure you'll enjoy the TV show of Fame It's great.
