Starting Friday, May 31, Company Town will feature a weekly cartoon about the entertainment business from David Horsey, a lifelong fan of movies and music as well as a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist.

In this, his first installment, Horsey looks at a tried-and-true Hollywood movie scenario -- that of a desperate movie executive, hungry for a hit but over budget on his huge summer movie, saved at the box office by a big screen superhero.
