In the freewheeling San Francisco of the 1970s, fresh-faced midwesterner Mary Ann Singleton arrives for a visit and decides to stay. But only when she moves into the funky apartment house at 28 Barbary Lane does it become clear just how far from Cleveland she really is. Based on Armistead Maupin's groundbreaking novel about a cast of characters in search of love across the whole spectrum of sexual experience, Tales of the City evokes both a unique time and place and universal yearning for connection. This Peabody Award-winning PBS miniseries stars Oscar winner Olympia Dukakis (Moonstruck), Donald Moffat (Clear and Present Danger), Oscar nominee Laura Linney (You Can Count on Me), Marcus D'Amico (Full Metal Jacket) and Chloe Webb (Sid & Nancy) as Mona Ramsey. Also featuring Thomas Gibson (Dharma & Greg), Barbara Garrick (Sleepless in Seattle), Billy Campbell (Once and Again) and Paul Gross (Due South).
