The Show was a show about a show that was also about two other shows
13 October 2011 | by KeymahSee all my reviews

"The Show" was a hip and quirky sitcom centered around Tom Delaney (Sam Sedar), the charming new head writer of The Wilson Lee (Mystro Clark) Show, blending in with the variety show's tight knit established writers, Devon Griffen (Shaun Baker), Denise Everett (T'Keyah Crystal Keymáh), and Trent Vance (Chris Spenser). The show, ("The Show") seems to be a tribute to "The Dick Van Dyke Show," loosely based on Writer/Creator/Executive Producer John Bowman's experience as a (White) writer on "In Living Color." In addition to Bowman and Keymáh, the show ("The Show")'s crew included "In Living Color" writers Matt Wickline (Co-Exec Producer) and Larry Wilmore (Producer). Keith Amos played the studio's sharp and surly receptionist Terrence, who, like a club doorman, decided who got by him and who didn't.
