BGN interviews actor Cherie Johnson (Cherie) for the Peacock TV series Punky Brewster.
In this continuation of the iconic 80s sitcom about a bright young girl raised by a foster dad, Punky is now a single mother of three trying to get her life back on track when she meets Izzy, a young girl in the foster system who reminds Punky a lot of her younger self.
