Legions of people may know Bill Cosby best as Dr. Cliff Huxtable from The Cosby Show. What some may not realize is that the series wasn't his first sitcom.
After winning two Emmy® awards for his role in the weekly television drama I Spy, Cosby got a taste of the television comic world in The Bill Cosby Show, which ran from 1969-1971. The series will debut on DVD Aug. 22 as a four-disc set that includes all 26 fully restored episodes and a brand new on-camera interview with Cosby himself. The cost will be $39.98.
In the series, Cosby portrays Chet Kincaid, a gym teacher and basketball coach at an urban high school in Los Angeles who gets into all sorts of predicaments. The Bill Cosby Show: Season One DVD features the original music by Quincy Jones and guest appearances by everyone from Henry Fonda to Cicely Tyson.
