This sitcom was set primarily in a small urban nightclub owned by Chelsea Lane (Patti Labelle). The main character was Jeff (Morris Chestnut) who worked at the nightclub. Other characters included Charisse (Vivica Fox), the obligatory love interest, and Vidal (Duane Martin), Jeff's irresponsible best friend. It suffered from its focus on Jeff and Charisse, both of whom were really boring and stereotypical characters. Far more interesting were Vidal and Chelsea--though that is as much due to the actors as to the characters themselves. I've never cared for Vivica Fox; though she's beautiful and a competent actress, her personality has a chilly hauteur that is really unappealing in a lead character. She would be wise to pursue roles that highlight her darker side.
