Ellen (1994)

Ellen DeGeneres as "Ellen Morgan"

Ellen works in a Los Angeles bookstore called Buy the Book and hangs around with her friends discussing lovers, work and family. The show came under controversy during the fourth season when the title character came out as a lesbian, shortly after Ellen DeGeneres did the same in real life.
