Tales of the City/More Tales of the City
Double bill of drama miniseries based on the books by Armistead Maupin. In 'Tales of the City', naive country girl Mary Ann Singleton (Laura Linney) arrives in San Francisco in 1976 and receives a rude awakening to the rather more hectic pace of life in the big city when she moves into an apartment block owned by exotic, free-thinking landlady Anna Madrigal (Olympia Dukakis). 'More Tales of the City' follows the continuing adventures of Mary Ann in which she goes on a cruise with her gay friend, Michael (Paul Hopkins), and finds romance with Burke (Colin Ferguson), who she later helps to regain his lost memory. Meanwhile, Anna is forced to come clean about her secret past.
