Rose McGowan‘s ‘Dawn’ is now available for free! Realizing that her passion lies in filmmaking, Rose McGowan’s breakthrough directorial debut is a disturbing tale of a young girl’s budding sexuality and one’s desire to experience the unknown. Dawn (Tara Barr) is a quiet young teenager living in Kennedy era America who longs for something or someone to free her from her sheltered life. When she strikes up an innocent flirtation with the boy who works at her local gas station (Reiley McClendon), she thinks that he is perhaps the answer to her teenage dreams. Though when she invites the boy and his friends into her otherwise cloistered world, she gets a lot more than she bargained for.

'Sanford and Son' premiered on this day in 1972 on NBC.
The show was based on the British sitcom "Steptoe and Son." Adapted by Norman Lear, the show starred comedian Redd Foxx and ran for 6 seasons. Known for its edgy racial humor, running gags, and catchphrases, it was considered NBC's answer to CBS's "All in the Family."
The iconic theme music was composed by the legdary Quincy Jones. Titled "The Streetbeater," the song was released through A&M Records in 1973.

25 years ago today, LA FEMME NIKITA starring Peta Wilson debuted on the USA Network. Based on the Luc Besson film of the same name (and 'Point of No Return' remake starring Bridgette Fonda), this high-intensity syndicated action series ran for five seasons until 2001.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERNCE? — The television series differs from the film versions in one fundamental aspect: Nikita (Peta Wilson) is innocent. She is not a killer, nor a drug user, just a homeless young woman in the wrong place at the wrong time. Section One—an elite, top-secret counter-terrorism organization—sets Nikita up to be accused of murdering a police officer and sentenced to life in prison where she supposedly commits suicide and is brought into Section One. Because Nikita will be killed (or "cancelled") if she fails to comply, she is forced to carry out the organization's ruthless methods of fighting terrorism, while attempting to keep her moral integrity intact. This personal struggle becomes the primary conflict of the series. A key scene in the two theatrical films involves Nikita's first assignment—to murder a VIP in a crowded restaurant. Although the Nikita of the television series eventually does become, by necessity, a ruthless killer, in the television version of this first mission she avoids killing the VIP (whereas the film versions of the character completes the assignment). However, despite the machinations of others in power around her, Nikita retains her compassion and humanity.
