Living Single

Living Single


Living Single focuses on the personal and professional lives of six African American friends residing in New York City. Khadijah James (Queen Latifah) is the founder and editor of Flavor Magazine, an independent publication aimed at the young urban audience. She shares an apartment in a Brooklyn brownstone with her sweet-but-eccentric cousin Synclaire (Kim Coles), an aspiring actress who works as a receptionist at Flavor; and longtime friend Regine Hunter (Kim Fields), a materialistic woman with a knack for picking up gossip. The trio constantly receives unannounced visits from Khadijah's college friend Maxine Shaw (Erika Alexander), a strong-willed attorney who seems to have an aversion to purchasing her own groceries. Also occupying their fair share of time in the apartment are neighbor Overton Wakefield Jones (John Henton), a handyman who frequently offers homespun wisdom; and his best friend, Kyle Barker (T.C. Carson), a self-assured stock broker who is involved in a bizarre love-hate relationship with Max.

Following the fourth season, FOX failed to put the series on the fall schedule, but it was promoted from midseason status when the Scott Baio sitcom Rewind failed to impress and was cancelled before the first episode aired. T.C. Carson appeared in only a few episodes during this fifth (and final) season; and Mel Jackson joined the cast as Tripp Williams, an aspiring songwriter who moves in with Regine and Khadijah following Synclaire's marriage to Overton.
