    Cover Me is a comedic drama TV series developed by Shaun Cassidy for the USA Network that follows the Arno family, a unique family of five who finds themselves pulled along into the father's job. When Danny and Barbara (Peter Dobson and Melora Hardin) decided to have kids, they made a pact to never hide the details of their work. Something that was easier said than done, considering Danny Arno is an undercover FBI agent. As he freelances for all the major agencies across the globe, he takes his family along for the ride as his confidential informant wife tries to provide the normal in a not so normal home for their three kids. Pretty and romantic, sixteen-year-old Celeste (Cameron Richardson) is the only one reluctant to be pulled in to the cases, mostly because she ultimately gains a crush on the enemy. Fourteen-year-old Ruby (Antoinette Picatto) is constantly rallying to do anything and everything, whether it's from becoming each school's homecoming queen or having the fastest gun-cleaning time out of her family. Then, there's eleven-year-old Chance (Michael Angarano), who as the youngest is a natural con artist with such a knack for spy life his parents' wouldn't know what to do without him. Based on a real life undercover family, the Arnos put their talents, whether it's from putting a defector or a terrorist away or getting the kids in bed on time, to use.moreless

    NBC (ended 1973)
    Night Gallery was creator-host Rod Serling's follow-up to The Twilight Zone. Set in a shadowy museum of the outre, Serling weekly unveiled disturbing portraiture as preface to a highly diverse anthology of tales in the fantasy-horror vein. Bolstering Serling's thoughtful original dramas were adaptations of classic genre material--short stories by such luminaries as H. P. Lovecraft, Fritz Leiber, A.E. van Vogt, Algernon Blackwood, Conrad Aiken, Richard Matheson, August Derleth, and Christianna Brand. Variety of material brought with it a variety of tone, from the deadly serious to the tongue-in-cheek, stretching the television anthology concept to its very limits. (CREW INFORMATION SUPPLEMENT: Jaroslav Gebr was the artist for the pilot film's three gallery paintings. For the series, all of the gallery canvases were painted by Tom Wright. The gallery's metal sculptures were created by Phil Vanderlei and Logan Elston. Most episodes contained multiple story segments. For the listing of episode credits, crew information is listed under the primary story segment except where a production aspect--music, cinematography--differs among the segments.)moreless

    "She's dead. Wrapped in plastic." Date: Friday, February 24, 1989: Homecoming Queen Laura Palmer is found dead, washed up on a riverbank, wrapped in plastic sheeting. FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper is called in to investigate the murder of this young woman in the small, Northwestern town of Twin Peaks. What he doesn't know is that in Twin Peaks, no one is innocent.

    Twin Peaks was created by TV veteran Mark Frost (Hill Street Blues) and edgy filmmaker David Lynch, Academy Award nominated director of The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet and Mulholland Dr. It aired on ABC from 1990 - 1991. The series, with a few exceptions, followed the interesting convention that one episode equaled one day in the town of Twin Peaks. This means that after 30 episodes, the series covers just slightly more than one month.

    After Twin Peaks was canceled by ABC, David Lynch went on to make the prequel film, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, the story of the last seven days of Laura Palmer.moreless
