Series derived from the Cosby Show, Campus Show follows the adventures of Denise Huxable (Lisa Bonnet) at the University, on the Hillman campus.

Campus Show (A Different World in English) was an American television series which was broadcast from 1987 to 1993. The series followed the adventures of a group of black students at the fictitious University of Hillman. Campus Show was a spin-off of the television series The Cosby Show, in which the characters of Denise Huxable and Maggie Lauten were students in Hillman.

The series was known for its diversified cast and to approach important subjects such as racism, sexism and LGBT rights. She was praised for helping to change the representation of black characters on television and to have paved the way for other television series highlighting color characters.

Campus Show was written and produced by Bill Cosby and was broadcast on NBC. The series has won numerous prizes, including three Primetime Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe. In France, the series was broadcast on TF1 under the name of "a life for two".

The song of the generic seasons 2 to 5 was interpreted by Aretha Franklin.

Debbie Allen became a producer from season 2. She was the sister of Phylicia Allen-Raschad (clear in the Cosby Show), and also the dance teacher in Fame.

In the United States, the success of the Show campus would be at the origin of numerous inscriptions of black students at the university, at the end of the 80s - early 90!
