1963. Essie Lee Lane is a small-town girl from a humble background
-- and proud of it. Dedicated to her loving family and her church,
she doesn't take "stuff" from nobody. Not from the rowdy
customers at her job at one of Mississippi's best rib joints,
and certainly not from the visiting preachers who often behave
as if they are God's gift to the world. Yet Essie Lee isn't ready
for the Reverand Theophilus Simmons, the new and very eligible
pastor of Memphis 's Greater Hope Church. Down-to-earth, caring,
romantic, and oh-so-fine, he is one of the most respected
young preachers in the African-American church during this time
of vast social change. He's everything Essie thought she'd never
find, a man who loves God, repects her for her straight-talking
ways -- and who ignites her with a divine fire all his own. And
Theophilus realizes that Essie has everything a pastor needs in
a wife -- a First Lady with compassion and brains who will share
the joys and challenges of his minstry.
But soon Essi and Theophilus discover that dealing
the Greater Hope congregation won't be any honey moon even after
they're married. With their parishioners in turmoil and their
denomination facing a major scandal, Essie and Theophilus find
their marriage and their church put to the test over and over
again... as they struggle to lead the CHURCH FOLK to harmony and
to God's sweetest rewards.

PLACE, an exceptionally innovative half-hour television program
sometimes referred to as a "dramedy," aired on CBS during the
1987-88 television season. The program won extensive critical
praise for the ways in which it used conventions of situation
comedy to explore serious subject matter. As Rolling Stone writer
Mark Christensen commented "rarely has a prime-time show attempted
to capture so accurately a particular American subculture--in
this case that of blue-collar blacks in Louisiana."
In 1987 Frank's Place won the Television Critics
Association's award for outstanding comedy series. In 1988 one
episode, "The Bridge," won Emmy awards for best writing in a comedy
series (writer and co-executive producer, Hugh Wilson) and outstanding
guest performance in a comedy series (Beah Richards). Tim Reid,
star and co-executive producer, received an NAACP Image Award.
In spite of its critical success, the show ran for only one season
