Marla Gibbs, co-creator and producer Bill Boulware, and playwright Christine Houston, discuss the play that 227 was based upon and how it evolved from being a community theater play into being a sitcom. There is a lot of interesting background information here about the show as well, like why the address of the building is 227, why they created the character of Pearl, and it also discusses things that were in the play that just weren’t quite right for a sitcom.
