This Television Series spun-off The Jeffersons
'The Jeffersons' is a spin-off of 'All in the Family'. The main characters of The Jeffersons were the Bunkers' former next-door neighbors George Jefferson and his wife, Louise "Weezie" Jefferson. George Jefferson was the owner of a chain of seven successful dry-cleaning stores; as The Jeffersons begins, they have just moved from the Bunkers' neighborhood to a luxury high-rise apartment building in Manhattan's Upper East Side. George was considered to be the "black Archie Bunker," and just as racist as Archie.
