Newly arrived in freewheeling 1970s San Francisco, wide-eyed Mary Ann Singleton (Oscar® nominee Laura Linney, John Adams, the Savages) quickly realizes just how far from Cleveland she really is. Moving into a funky house at 28 Barbary Lane where her landlady (Oscar® winner Olympia Dukakis, Moonstruck) welcomes her with a joint-Mary Ann befriends the other residents and finds a good-natured home amid the drugs, drama, and debauchery. Based on Armistead Maupin's beloved novel, this Peabody Award-winning PBS miniseries deftly chronicles the quest for love and connection across a spectrum of sexual experiences. With an outstanding ensemble cast featuring Billy Campbell (The Killing), Thomas Gibson (Dharma & Greg), Marcus D'Amico (Full Metal Jacket), Chloe Webb (Shameless), Barbara Garrick (Sleepless in Seattle), and Paul Gross (Slings & Arrows), TALES OF THE CITY was hailed as "a brilliant evocation of a time and place" (Los Angeles Times) and remains a television landmark.
