* RealLifeWritesThePlot: The Season 2 "Episodes" had its main plot (Leroy losing a role in the school's play after being tardy when he decided to try out for a dance troupe) based on Gene Anthony Ray (who played Leroy) being constantly late for tapings and rehearsals. Apparently, the message didn't sink in at the time for Ray; who ended up being suspended for 5 episodes in Season 3.
** The decision to have Nicole Chapman killed off towards the end was the result of two eerie coincidences - the writers were planning on doing a drunk driving episode around the time Nia Peeples planned on leaving the show. Rather than [[PutOnABus put Nicole on a bus]], they killed her off entirely (and later regretted doing so).

A 1980 musical drama film directed by Alan Parker, ''Fame'' is the story of some students of the New York High School of Performing Arts, a very exclusive RealLife school (which has since been merged with the High School of Music & Art to become the Fiorello H. [=LaGuardia=] High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts). The students find themselves cooperating amongst themselves and with the faculty, even as they compete for chances in the real world to make their dreams of stardom come true, and deal with the personal and professional obstacles that stand in their way.
