Trivia:
In the final year, Debbie Allen was appearing on Broadway in "Sweet Charity". Her stage run overlapped with the filming of the final season. To be able to include her in episodes, the producers filmed all of her scenes in New York City. That is why she appears in only exterior scenes, and had no interior scenes for several episodes.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
Author: Kayla Fortson from United States

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!
