Episode Guide

  • Shirley Temple Story
    As America struggled through the Great Depression in the 1930s, a little girl with big dimples and indescribable charm danced her way into the hearts of moviegoers around the world. Based on the true story of child star Shirley Temple, portrayed by look-alike Ashley Rose Orr (Broadway's ANNIE GET YOUR GUN), this delightful film follows Shirley's early career, starting with her discovery by a studio executive at age four. Adored by the public almost overnight, Shirley quickly became Hollywood's top box office draw. But as her fame grew to legendary status, Shirley's parents, George and Gertrude Temple (Connie Britton TV's SPIN CITY), struggled to protect her from overzealous fans, Hollywood exploitation and, eventually, the end of her studio contract and the threat of financial ruin. Filled with famous song-and-dance routines, wonderfully recreated and expertly performed, CHILD STAR: THE SHIRLEY TEMPLE STORY, is pure joy for families and fans worldwide!moreless

  • New Adventures Of Spin and Marty : Suspect Behavior
    Jeremy Foley plays 14-year-old Spin Evans, a James Bond wannabe who is out to save the world. . . whether it needs it or not! Innocent people are sometimes the target of his overactive imagination, and he has finally gone too far when the wealthy and influential Markhams (tenants in the palatial building Spin's parents manage) become Spin's latest conquests. Believing that they are traveling to Paris under the guise of a vacation but are actually planning to blow up the Eiffel Tower as a protest against French Imperialism, it is Spin's job to save the free world from their evil. Caught in his latest caper, Spin is grounded for the entire summer ... without parole. Meanwhile Marty Markham (Gallagher) is suffering his own kind of hell at the hands of his parents. Pretty much a loner with only his butler Jordan (Shaughnessy) to call a friend, Marty is expected either to spend the summer at the dude ranch or travel to Paris with his parents, neither of which interests him. His concerned mother gives him an ultimatum: find a friend in three days or off to the dude ranch it is. The dutiful Jordan is left to enforce the new rule. Just as Spin is looking for his next caper and Marty grows desperate for a friend, some very intriguing new neighbors move into their building. Jack Hulka (Nelson) and Veronica Hulka, played by Yancy Butler (``Brooklyn South''), arrive looking eerily like the Grim Reaper and his wife. The fun is about to begin as Spin and his new friend Marty uncover some unearthly deeds.moreless
