amos 'n' andy on tv

The Amos ‘n Andy Show
was produced from June 28, 1951 to April 1953 with
78 filmed episodes, sponsored by the Blatz Brewing Company. The television
series used African-American actors in the main roles, although the actors were
instructed to keep their voices and speech patterns as close to Gosden and
Correll’s as possible. Produced at the Hal Roach Studios for CBS, it was one 
of the first television series to be filmed with a multi-camera setup, four months
before the more famous I Love Lucy used the same technique.
