A heart-warming story about inter-racial friendship in America.
This series came out post-"Roots" and only lasted for barely one year. Two young boys, one black and one white would defy their small town's racist attitude to become the best of friends. Similar to a show called BOON, this series examined the civil rights era in America and all the progresses and setbacks that existed.

Mike Fox (MJ Fox) was cast as Willy the grocery boy shortly after he arrived in LA. He had finished "Leo and Me" for the CBC and was heading to Hollywood where fate would play a huge role in getting him Family Ties. His role in Palmerston,although limited, was enough to get him noticed.
