A nice guy with a questionable past, Charlie Bronson, risks everything when he busts out of a witness protection program to drive his girlfriend to Los Angeles for the job opportunity of a lifetime.

Hit & Run is a high-speed race to the finish where the brakes are off and the chase is on.
Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth
Twenty-five years ago, renowned scholar Joseph Campbell sat down with veteran journalist Bill Moyers for a series of interviews that became one of the most enduringly popular programs ever aired on PBS.

A Late Quartet
A powerful story that blends raw emotion with fiery passion to form an unforgettable cinematic masterpiece. After 25 years together, the members of a world-renowned string quartet learn that their beloved cellist may soon be forced to retire. But the news stirs up equally painful challenges when competing egos, harbored resentment, and irrepressible lust threaten to derail the group as they struggle to maintain harmony in their music, and their lives.

Minnie and Pluto end up in the silly but spectacular land of Dizz. It's an amazing place, with rainbow trees, butterfly bows, and friendly 'Chipmunchkins,' but what Minnie wants most is to get home.

It's where the rookies and veterans of a stand-up LAPD unit see all the violence and fear a big city can breed and struggle to make a difference.
