The series was not initially intended as a direct spin-off from The Cosby Show. The original premise centered around Maggie and her experiences as a white student attending a Historically Black College. Eventually it was decided to include Denise on the series, and Maggie instead became a supporting character. When Debbie Allen took over as Producer, she became intrigued by the original idea and wanted to partly center around Maggie and explore related issues as part of her revamping the series. Allen even considered a romantic pairing between Maggie and Dwayne, but ideas relating to Maggie were dropped when Marissa Tomei decided to leave the series. See more »

The early episodes of this sitcom were bland, as they focused on Denise Huxtable's (Lisa Bonet) experiences at Hillman College. The show only took off after Denise dropped out of school. The show then focused on the more interesting cast members, most notably, brainy student Dwayne (Kadeem Hardison) and snooty Southern belle Whitley Gilbert (Jasmine Guy). I liked that they also had Jalessa, a divorced adult student trying to rebuild her life.
NBC made a mistake during the last season of the show by confusing the audience. They ran a highly touted "series finale" showing the now-married and expectant parents Dwayne and Whitley going off to Japan, where Dwayne had gotten a high-tech job. The network then turned around and aired several more new episodes that focused on newer cast members including Charmaine (Karen Malinka White). They brought in Billy Dee Williams and Leslie Uggams as a landlord, and a college professor, respectively. It appeared that NBC cancelled the show, then made a last-minute effort to revive it.
Jada Pinkett Smith ("Set It Off"), comedian Sinbad and Oscar-winner Marisa Tomei ("My Cousin Vinny"), were three cast members who went on to bigger success.
