The lives of Escondido, California residents Cheryl and Stephen Crowe change one morning when they find their twelve year old daughter Stephanie Crowe stabbed to death in her bedroom. As procedure dictates, the police take each member of the household away individually to be questioned, and the remaining children - fourteen year old Michael Crowe and adolescent Shannon Crowe - are taken into protective custody until Cheryl and Stephen can be cleared. The police end up placing much of their focus on the sullen Michael, who they question without counsel and without discussion with his parents. The tone of the police questioning is that they believe Michael did kill his sister, the police lying, harassing and coercing in the process. Under the barrage of questioning, Michael eventually confesses, as do two of his friends, both questioned under the same threatening tone. Cheryl and Stephen, who are finally made aware of the questioning and the confessions, enlist the help of sympathetic attorney, Dorothy Sorenson, to clear Michael and his friends while trying to find the real killer, who they believe is a transient named Richard Tuite.

Karl Pruner TV Shows
The Trojan Horse is a Canadian political drama two-part miniseries from 2008, which is a sequel to the 2004 miniseries, H2O. The story revolves around a Canadian national referendum to decide whether or not Canada will join the United States.
Canadian television drama that focused on professional and personal lives of the members of Toronto law firm. The show, set and often shot in downtown Toronto, dealt with Canadian issues that made it strikingly different from its counterparts. Filled with memorable characters and, at times, controversial storylines, the series ran for eight seasons and was one of the most successful Canadian productions.
Nothing Sacred is an excellent drama that focuses on the life and times of the administration of St. Thomas' church, a Roman Catholic parish in Chicago. It is a realistic (if somewhat fast-paced) show that takes real issues facing people today and puts a religious spin on things. It deals with AIDS, abortion, and charity to the poor, among other things. Perhaps the best aspect of the show is its unabashed belief in the existence of God. The main characters pray, and they talk about their faith. We see actual Roman Catholic liturgy in action. We hear homilies that drive the point home.<br> While Nothing Sacred could perhaps be considered too liberal in some circles, it does a very good job of showing many sides of an issue... and the overwhelming message of the show is that we are to love and care for other people, just as Christ did when He was on Earth.
This show is based on Rod Serling's classic TV anthology show, The Twilight Zone. Redoing some episodes and doing new ones 20 years laters after the originals, these are made in color and in one-hour episodes.

Some of the show's writers are well known: Harlan Ellison, Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson, Sidney Sheldon and J. Michael Straczynski. The opening and closing music was done by The Grateful Dead.
