First broadcast in 1969, J.T. is the kind of television show that for those who got to see it, will never forget it. An emotional story based on the book written by Jane Wagner, J.T. follows the life of a young Harlem kid named J.T. Gamble. J.T. was originally produced for the CBS Saturday morning Children’s Hour program but, after winning the hearts of America, was re-broadcast and launched in primetime and garnered the prestigious Peabody Award for Jane Wagner.
