The show focuses on George and Louise Jefferson, a prosperous African-American couple who have been able to move from Queensto Manhattan owing to the success of George’s dry-cleaner chain. The show was launched as the second spin-off of All in the Family, on which the Jeffersons had been the neighbors of Archie and Edith Bunker. The show was the creation of Norman Lear. The Jeffersons eventually evolved into more of a traditional sitcom but did reference such issues as alcoholism, racism, suicide, gun control, being transgender, and adult illiteracy. The epithets “nigger” and “honky” were used occasionally, especially during the earlier seasons.
