In The House is a television sitcom that premiered on the UPN network in 1995. The show starred LL Cool J as Marion Hill, a former professional football player who had fallen on hard times and was forced to rent out a portion of his luxurious Los Angeles mansion in order to make ends meet. Maia Campbell played Tiffany Warren, a teenager who moves in with Hill after her mother gets remarried and she is left without a place to live. Alfonso Ribeiro rounded out the cast as Maxwell Stanton, Hill's best friend and business partner who helps him manage his financial affairs.

The show was set in a lavish mansion, which served as a backdrop for the show's many comedic moments. Despite their different backgrounds, the three main characters formed a close bond and faced a variety of challenges together, from dealing with Marion's ex-wife to navigating the ups and downs of teenage romance.

The relationship between Marion and Tiffany was a central theme of the show. Despite their initial reservations about living together, the two quickly became close and often relied on each other for support. The show tackled a number of serious issues affecting young people, including drug abuse, peer pressure, and absentee parents. Through it all, Marion served as a mentor and role model for Tiffany, teaching her important lessons about responsibility, hard work, and self-respect.

Although In The House was centered around a single household, the show also featured a vibrant supporting cast of recurring characters. Among them were Marion's mother, played by Irma P. Hall, and his daughter Lark, played by Alisa Reyes. Both characters provided plenty of laughs and added depth to the show's overall narrative.

Another recurring character was Rachel, played by Kim Wayans, who was Marion's ex-wife and the mother of his three children. Her presence on the show often created tension between Marion and Tiffany, who resented Rachel's attempts to interfere in their relationship. Rachel's own struggles with addiction gave the show a more serious edge and provided an opportunity for the characters to have more meaningful conversations about the dangers of substance abuse and the importance of seeking help.

In The House also featured a number of high-profile guest stars over its five-season run. The likes of Vivica A. Fox, Gabrielle Union, and Lisa Leslie all made appearances, adding even more star power to an already impressive cast.

The show was praised for its positive portrayal of African American families and its willingness to tackle difficult topics in a lighthearted way. Despite its serious subject matter, In The House was never preachy or heavy-handed, and remained one of the most beloved comedies on television throughout its run.

Ultimately, In The House was a show about family, friendship, and the importance of sticking together in tough times. It was a heartwarming and often hilarious look at the lives of its characters, and it left a lasting impression on audiences who tuned in week after week. Despite ending its run over 20 years ago, the show's legacy lives on, and it remains a beloved classic of American television.

In The House is a series that is currently running and has 5 seasons (76 episodes). The series first aired on April 10, 1995.
