Has anyone else seen this show?

Please let me know if you have. I have been looking for any detailed comments that I can find but most are very vague. Would love to see this show out on DVD. Shirley was very funny on What's Happening!! and What's Happening Now!! It's a shame this show didn't make it further or she wasn't given a chance at another series of her own. I always thought she would have been great in her own film series as well. Does anyone know why TV-One was set to air the show and then cancelled it from their schedule? Apparently, there were some other well-known actors in this series. Among them, Keene Curtis and the mayor from Murder, She Wrote. Any info provided would be appreciated greatly!
