A member of American television royalty on "The Cosby Show" (NBC, 1984-1992), actor-director-musician Malcolm-Jamal Warner continued to expand his artistic horizons long after leaving the nurturing environs of the Huxtable nest. Rocketing to national stardom as Bill Cosby's likeable TV scion, the industrious Warner soon began extending himself with directorial work on episodes of the hugely popular sitcom, in addition to installments of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" (NBC, 1990-96) and music videos for such acts as New Edition. Once "The Cosby Show" had completed its lengthy run, Warner tried his luck as the co-star of the short-lived sitcom "Here and Now" (NBC, 1992-93), followed by a more satisfying stint on "Malcolm & Eddie" (UPN, 1996-2001), opposite comedian Eddie Griffin. Other endeavors included the post-apocalyptic drama "Jeremiah" (Showtime, 2002-04), the debut release from his jazz/funk band Miles Long in 2005, and a co-starring role on the family comedy "Reed Between the Lines" (BET, 2011), which he also produced. Comfortable with his place in television history, but determined not to be defined by it, Warner's diverse interests and talents ensured his continued success in whichever medium he chose.
