Forgotten TV: ROC
Roc is an American television series which originally ran onFox network from August 25, 1991 to May 10, 1994. The series stars Charles S. Dutton as Baltimore garbage collector Roc Emerson and his nurse wife, Eleanor played by Ella Joyce.
ROC was a much more realistic look at a black family than we had on COSBY. Roc was a garbage collector and had a brother with drug issues. There was an interesting piece in the NYT on Sunday about ROC. Not many shows about lower middle class people from any race/ethnicity anymore.
I can only think of THE MIDDLE.What else?
