City Guys is a sitcom that aired on NBC.

City Guys was mainly centered on its two main characters, Jamal Grant and Chris Anderson, two teenagers from different backgrounds – Chris coming from a wealthy family, and Jamal coming from a working class family – who had to stay on the ball while attending Manhattan High School (which was nicknamed in the series as "Manny High") and avoid trouble, while their principal Karen Noble attempted to keep them in line. Jamal's and Chris's similar personalities caused friction between them in the beginning, but as the series went on, they became best friends. The boys and their friends – overachiever Dawn Tartikoff, slick guy Al Ramos, aspiring actress Cassidy Giuliani, and dimwitted bully-turned-friend (who was held back six grades) Lionel "L-Train" Johnson – dealt with the typical teen issues, such as cheating on tests, peer pressure and dealing with school violence.
