Tom is a loving, well-respected family man from a small Indiana town. When two criminals show up at his diner, Tom is forced to take action and thwart the robbery attempt. Suddenly heralded as a local hero who took the courage to stand up to crime, people look up to Tom as a man of high moral regard. But all the media attention attracts the likes of the mob, who show up at Tom's doorstep. Is it a case of mistaken identity or does Tom have a history that no one knows about?

Lawrence Wetherhold is a recently widowed literature professor who is a numb and chilly intellectual. He rebuffs his students, ignores his own teenage children, James and Vanessa, and spurns cries for financial assistance from his ne'er-do-well but rather soulful adopted brother, Chuck. After an accident and Lawrence goes to the hospital, he is deprived of the right to drive. Janet is a physician and former student of Lawrence who remembers her disappointment in him as a teacher and role model. But, Janet and Lawrence become romantically involved. Meanwhile, Chuck and Vanessa try to come to terms with each other and prove that their relationship is another sign that the Wetherhold clan has become far too insular and self-referential

Starring Courtney B. Vance. Nine strangers survive the unthinkable when the basement of their high-rise apartment building protects them from a nuclear attack on New York City.

As supplies dwindle and tensions flare, they grow increasingly unhinged by hopelessness and close quarters. They turn on one another, and each act of physical and psycho-sexual torment becomes more depraved than the last. Only one survivor holds on to a thin chance for escape, even with no hope of salvation on the other side of the bunker door

The Pacific is an epic ten-part miniseries which tracks the intertwined real-life stories of three U.S Marines - Robert Leckie, John Basilone, and Eugene Sledge - across the vast canvas of the Pacific Theater during World War II. The miniseries follows these men and their fellow Marines from their first battle with the Japanese on Guadalcanal, through the rain forests of Cape Gloucester and the strongholds of Peleliu, across the bloody sands of Iwo Jima and through the horror of Okinawa, and finally to their triumphant but uneasy return home after V-J Day. The Pacific is based in part on the books "Helmet for My Pillow," by Robert Leckie, and "With the Old Breed," by Eugene B. Sledge, with additional material from "Red Blood, Black Sand," by Chuck Tatum, and "China Marine," by Eugene B. Sledge, as well as original interviews conducted by the filmmakers
