A Different World

1987 TV-PG

A spin-off of "The Cosby Show," this sitcom set at the fictional Hillman College launched with Lisa Bonet reprising her role as Denise Huxtable. By the time Bonet left the show in the second season, the solid cast had come into its own. Standouts include Kadeem Hardison as the irrepressible Dwayne Wayne, Jasmine Guy as snooty Whitley Gilbert, Dawnn Lewis as divorced older student Jaleesa Vinson and stand-up comedian Sinbad as coach Walter Oakes.
