To celebrate its 25th Anniversary, Acorn TV adds the star-studded, ground-breaking miniseries Tales Of The City. Deftly chronicling the quest for love and connection across a spectrum of sexual experiences, the influential, star-studded, Peabody Award-winning PBS miniseries, stars Oscar winner Olympia Dukakis (Moonstruck), three-time Oscar nominee Laura Linney (John Adams, The Savages), Gemini winner Paul Gross (Slings & Arrows), Billy Campbell (Cardinal, The Killing, Once and Again), Thomas Gibson (Criminal Minds), Parker Posey (Louie) and Ian McKellen (Lord of the Rings). Based on the ground-breaking novel by Armistead Maupin, Tales of the City follows a colorful cast of characters living at 28 Barbary Lane in anything-goes 1970s San Francisco. This is a good time to binge before the Netflix revival in 2019 with new episodes.
Newly arrived in freewheeling 1970s San Francisco, wide-eyed Mary Ann Singleton (Laura Linney) quickly realizes just how far from Cleveland she really is. Moving into a funky house at 28 Barbary Lane—where her landlady (Olympia Dukakis) welcomes her with a joint—Mary Ann befriends the other residents and finds a good-natured home amid the drugs, drama, and debauchery.
