Diginet Decades starts airing short-lived sitcoms When Things Were Rotten (ABC, 1975) and Ferris Bueller (NBC, 1990; 1991) on Monday, August 19th, 2019.
My favorite obscurities from the 1990s include Earth 2, Ferris Bueller, My Life and Times, Freaks and Geeks, The Outsiders, and Space: Above and Beyond.
Heading into the 1990-1991 season NBC had high hopes for this sitcom, based on the popular 1986 film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Charlie Schlatter starred as scheming high school student Ferris with Jennifer Aniston as his older sister. Just 13 episodes were produced.
