The show was the first to feature Brandy Norwood, who later went on to become a Grammy-winning singer and the star of her own sitcom, Moesha, (with Yvette Wilson as a member of the supporting cast).

Although the show garnered high ratings at first, ratings declined steadily over the course of the season, and the series was canceled after 19 episodes. It ended the season in 43rd place.
