Living Single Season 1 Check, check, check it out

Living Single starred Queen Latifah as Khadijah James, the mastermind behind Flavor a fictional monthly magazine. Khadijah lived in Brooklyn with her cousin Synclaire and friend Régine Hunter, the would-be diva. Rounding out the bunch was pit bull lawyer Maxine Shaw and their two male counterparts, handyman Overton Wakefield Jones and “Baker Magic” himself, stockbroker Kyle Barker.

The show ran for five seasons on Fox, and was part of its storied Thursday night lineup. Not only was the show popular for its portrayal of six black twentysomethings trying to make it in New York, it was adored because all of the principal characters were women.
