Storyline

The Art School was always their dream. They want to dance, they want to sing, to play music, to act but above all they want to live their lives while they are still young and full of energy. Leroy, Danny, Jesse, Chris, Coco and all the others try hard because they know that they've got a long way to go till they reach fame and riches. Fame costs and here (the Art School) is where they start paying for it. Written by Xenophon Tsakanikas <ftpadmin@antigoni.med.auth.gr>

Trivia

In an EmmyTvLegends interview Debbie Allen has said that the perfect romance for the show would have been between Lee Curreri ( Bruno) and Gene Anthony Ray (Leroy.). But because the censors were too restrictive back then, and because certain people were still in the closet, that never came to be. See more »

"Fame" was the awesome full length Music Video that came into your home once a week, and I LOVED IT!
24 March 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There has never been, nor will there ever be an awesome production like, "FAME". Many shows have tried to duplicate it's success, with story lines that feature a spectacular production number but they could never really capture the magic that "Fame" brought to me each week.

I loved the characters and their struggle to be famous and I especially loved "Dusty Tyler". She replaced Janet Jackson (who played Cleo) and what a wonderful gift God gave her. All she wants is a place to belong and when she sings about it, your heart reaches out to her. Your eyes fill with tears and your arms long to comfort her. She's so beautiful and sweet and deserves her chance to shine. They all do. And thanks to the wonderful production company, you get to see the cast do just that! I really miss the show and wish they would re-run it more often. I'd even like to see a "cable station" devoted to productions like "Fame". If great singing and dances lifts your spirits the way it lifts mine, then "Fame" is what you want to reach for... each and every day!
