MANIAC - starring: Bill Sorvino, David Harris and Joe D'Onofrio
The Man is a disgruntled and disturbed citizen, a loner on the mean streets of New York City and New Jersey, as he ventures into isolation and violent misanthropy. He deals with tragedy by dispensing his own form of justice on the criminal low lives that "keep on hurting the good people." In doing so, he attempts to help young prostitute Gina to free herself of her abusive pimp Johnny Ramone. Eventually using two hand guns, he sets out to rid the world of the people "doing terrible, horrible disgusting things to other human beings."
SURVIVING FAMILY - starring: Sarah Wilson, Billy Magnussen, Tara Westwood, Bill Sage, J.D. Williams, Phyllis Somerville, and Vincent Pastore
Terry Malone is smart, beautiful, and about to marry a terrific guy. But life in her dysfunctional family - marred by alcoholism, mental illness, and suicide - has left her unprepared to build the happy life that she yearns for. A visit to her family home forces Terry to face the truth about her mother's death, her father's life, and the half sister she never knew she had.
