Set in the mid-1970s, The Sophisticated Gents centers upon the brotherhood relationship shared by nine African-American men who bonded during their childhood when they were members of “The Sophisticated Gents” sports club. 

The club was founded by their coach, Charles “Chappie” Davis (Sonny Jim Gaines), to actively involve the boys in their inner city, Los Angeles community.  Promoting excellence in sports but also in character, the boys grew to be hardworking and accomplished, whether in blue collar labor, community leadership, business or crime.
