SOLVED by Jayson1: The TV series is "One in a Million" (1980). This is all I got; I spent two hours trying all kinds of search terms and ideas. What I got: It's a short-lived 1970's (maybe 1980's) half-hour American comedy series. I only know it by the opening credits I found on YouTube years ago. The opening has a (black?) man driving a car and the music is funky goodness; possibly a black sitcom. I thought it was by R. Dale Butts or Harry Betts, but ASCAP didn't show any results (I did not check BMI). I swear it was one of them and that I had found it on BMI or ASCAP. I seem to recall I found the opening credits on YouTube while searching for the old TV series "Cool Million" and that it came up in the side bar of suggested videos. I am using a wifi system which has nearly everything on YouTube blocked by Google administrator settings (including the official and legal YouTube movie channel where you can see movies legally), so I can't reproduce the circumstances. I did all the searches I found think of, including by composers and lists of obscure 1970's TV series, etc.
