Earning herself Emmy® and Golden Globe Award nominations for her portrayal of Nellie Ruth "Nell" Harper, Nell Carter brings this 1980s TV show to life. Gimme A Break! focuses on the spirited, but by no means typical, Kanisky family consisting of a widowed Police Chief father, his three daughters, ranging from grade-schooler to troublesome teen, and their vivacious housekeeper Nell. With her strong opinions and humorous maternal instincts, Nell's role extended far beyond that of a normal housekeeper, giving the sitcom its punchy premise. This DVD set of Gimme A Break!'s sophomore season contains all 22 episodes, a preview episode from the series' third season that introduces us to a pint-sized Joey Lawrence, as well as a bonus episode from the forthcoming Third Season DVD release of another feel good sitcom from the 80's - Kate & Allie.
Featuring guest appearances in its Second Season by Hollywood legend Don Rickles, musical act The Pointer Sisters, Michael Dudikoff (Cobra, the American Ninja films), Harrison Page (ER, Sledge Hammer!, Ally McBeal, JAG), Marcia Wallace (Match Game, The Bob Newhart Show, The Simpsons), Gimme A Break! is the dearly loved comedy that is chock-full of both wisecracks as well as tear-jerks.
