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

Debbie Allen's one line in the movie was "Wicked." (Ironically, it was a response to when the dance teacher, Miss Berg, asked "What do you call that?", when Leroy was dancing around very provocatively). See more »

Quotes

Lydia Grant: [In each opening intro] So, you want fame?... Well, fame costs... and right here is where you start paying.

I Miss It!
5 January 2002 | by kathleen_wittSee all my reviews

"Fame" had some of the most talented young people of the 1980s. Gene Anthony Ray and Debbie Allen are two of the most gifted dancers I have ever seen. The show, while not totally realistic, was always entertaining, heartwarming, and just fun to watch. I recently watched the movie "Fame" which inspired the TV show, and I wonder where those talented actors are today. "Fame" was one of the best shows on TV and I wish that there were more like it today.
