Welcome to Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature launched to celebrate TV and Film’s informative past.
Today, we honour ‘South Central’, a hard hitting TV show fronted by Tina Liford.
In it, a divorced mother is forced to raise three children without support from her ex-husband as she mourns the death of a son who was murdered by a gang member some time earlier.
With help from Larenz Tate, Liford and her cast pulled viewers into a world filled with highs, lows, ups and down for one season and saw it come to an end after it was cancelled by Fox.
Take a journey to the past with us below…
