  1. Martin

    Martin is an American sitcom produced by HBO Independent Productions that aired for five seasons, from August 27, 1992 to May 1, 1997 on Fox. The show is both titled after and stars actor-comedian Martin Lawrence along with supporting characters Tichina Arnold, Thomas Mikal Ford, Carl Anthony Payne II, and Tisha Campbell. Reflecting the rising popularity of the Fox network throughout the 1990s, Martin was one of the network's highest-rated shows during the sitcom's five-season run. In contrast to the popularity of NBC's "Must See TV" on Thursday nights in the 1990s, many African American and Latino viewers flocked to Fox's Thursday night line-up of Martin, Living Single, and New York Undercover. In fact, these were the three highest-rated series among black households for the 1996–1997 season.

    On Martin's quest to prevent recurrence, she started a diet of only raw vegan foods and green juices. I would go to the farmers’ market and just buy everything that I could find and see, and I would juice half, make salads with the other half, and it was amazing how quickly I rebounded from the toxins from all the chemotherapy. My hair grew back quickly, my skin started to really glow— and then the energy, I’d never had that much energy in my entire life. After years of juicing at home, Martin left her corporate job and launched Daily Greens, a national cold-pressed green juice company. I realized what I'm most passionate about in life is trying to make other people healthy, and for me that really starts with a green juice every day, Martin said. Martin continued her mission to motivate others, and published her recipes and personal health plan in her book, Daily Greens, 4-Day Cleanse.
