When the FBI went into the movie business in the 1980s in an attempt to weed out racketeering and payola, mobsters weren't the only casualties of the sting. Among the unwitting participants in the drama were struggling filmmakers Dan Lewk and Gary Levy. Though their film "Cartunes" was never produced, they were left with a wild story to tell--and now the real Hollywood is listening. The two were approached in 1987 by a producer named David Rudder with an offer they couldn't refuse.

Water Grill, with its attentive servers, white tablecloths and hushed formality, was long a stalwart of L.A.'s old-guard restaurant scene. But to the young professionals who have streamed into its downtown neighborhood, all that pomp - and closing times as early as 9 p.m. - were just a bit too grandpa. To attract those budding foodies, Water Grill recently completed a $1.5-million makeover. The decor is more casual, the menu less expensive and filled with craft brews favored by the hipster crowd.

Writer-producer-director-star Rob Morrow doesn't pull punches: A woman who goes on a date with Morrow's Lyle Maze is in danger of his inadvertently knocking a glass of wine all over her while in the grip of an especially strong seizure.

In early August, a radio broadcaster was fired for on-air comments he made about the San Francisco Giants' Latino players and their 70-year-old manager, Felipe Alou. Larry Krueger, formerly the host of a talk show on the Giants' flagship station KNBR, attributed the team's poor performance this season to "brain-dead Caribbean hitters hacking at slop nightly" and said that Alou's "mind has turned to Cream of Wheat."

At the outset of the absorbing and pertinent "Maryam," the Armins of suburban New Jersey seem a typical affluent American family, to themselves and to their neighbors. That Dr. Armin (Shaun Toub), while loving and good-humored, is stricter than other fathers is the only apparent trace of his Iranian heritage. His daughter, Mary (Mariam Parris), born in Iran as Maryam and brought to the U.S.
