About The Show

Hello and welcome to the official website for THE SCENE, the television dance show that ROCKED Detroit from 1976 to 1987 on WGPR TV 62. The Scene featured many national and local guests artists as well as young dancers from the community. The show ran for a record 12 consecutive years from 1975 to 1987 and retired as one the most popular and successful shows in the history of WGPR-TV channel 62. The Scene had a strong loyal audience that included both the city and suburbs, all races and nationalities, the young and the young at heart. Nat Morris, Executive producer and host of the show, provided opportunities for local artists to launch their careers some of which went on to achieve national and international fame. The Scene paved the way for all the Detroit local entertainment TV shows that followed and had the impact on Detroit Black Television the same way that Soul Train and Don Cornelius had on a national level.
