AMERICAN PLAYHOUSE: CITY NEWS (TV)

Summary

One in this dramatic anthology series. This unusual, dark comedy chronicles the struggles of Tom Domino (Crown), publisher and editor of a seemingly doomed, underground newspaper in New York City's East Village. Tom fights to keep the paper afloat, until one night an interaction with an unusual woman, Daphne (Cohen), inspires a new storyline for the paper's comic strip and turns the paper into a huge success. Yet, as the small organization develops into a huge media empire, Domino learns that success has its drawbacks. Includes a promo for the following week's production of "American Playhouse," "Hughie." (This program received the Best Low Budget Feature award at the Houston International Film Festival, the Best Dramatic Film award at the Atlanta Independent Film Festival, and a Special Merit Award for Dramatic Feature at the Athens International Film Festival in Georgia.)
