Roc Emerson, a city garbage collector, balances the pressures of work with the everyday crises of family life in an effort to do what he thinks is best for his wife and kids. Most of the episodes were fairly typical sitcom storylines, but occasionally more serious topics, such as racism, were dealt with.Written by

The three male leads, Charles S. Dutton, Rocky Carroll, and Carl Gordon had all recently worked together in the Broadway production of August Wilson's "The Piano Lesson." In fact Charles S. Dutton had originally wanted their other co-star, S. Epatha Merkerson, to play the part of Eleanor. See more »
Roc was an excellent show that provided both comedy and true to like events. Charles S. Dutton, the hard nose garbage man, did a great job as the the title role of Roc. The whole cast was very talented from Ella Joyce to Rocky Carroll. I was very disappointed when it got cancelled, but was happy that it did last 3 years. My only question now is, "When the hell are they going to release the series on DVD?" We already have other impressive black sitcoms like Sanford & Son, Good Times, What's Happening? and Cosby on DVD. When can we expect "Roc" on DVD? This needs to be released.I searched Amazon and other retail websites, but it doesn't look like it's out yet. Let's hope the developers of this show can at least get this on DVD soon. Everyone should have the pleasure of watching this sitcom.
