The Cast of NBC's Hang Time Another Saturday morning non-gem airing on the TNBC block that we definitely sorta remember watching, Hang Time was a show that focused on a high school basketball team—which, progressively enough, also included a girl (it was Saved By The Bell on a Basketball Court, basically). Hang Time had a virtual rotating cast every single season, which included a pre-Suicide Squad Jay Hernandez, former Chicago Bear Dick Butkus as a coach, and a young Anthony Anderson when he was the age his kids are now on Blackish.
Less edgy than City Guys, largely set in a gym, and featuring game action in which it looked like the athletes weren’t even trying, the show got lost in the TNBC shuffle despite lasting six seasons (it aired from 1995-2000). The most memorable characters were lone female player Julie Connor (Daniella Deutscher, who ended up marrying co-star Hernandez) and the obsessive and neurotic Mary-Beth Pepperton (Megan Parlen), a cheerleader who was also in charge of the team’s equipment.
Notice someone here hint he has his own show on Black-ish.
