Twin-brother artisans John and Ron Daniels are at the heart of this fascinating new series, which reveals how they take ancient, reclaimed redwood trees and transform them into works of art. In the series premiere, a San Diego couple commissions the twins to use an enormous hollowed-out redwood tree trunk to build their lucky grandchildren a treehouse in the shape of an elaborate pirate-themed "scallywag sloop," complete with a towering crow's nest and rusty cannons.
Beginning today, Turner Classic Movies airs its annual Summer Under the Stars celebration, a monthlong tribute to Hollywood’s greatest stars. Each day in August is devoted to a particular star and is filled with his or her films. This year’s event kicks off today honoring Jane Fonda, including such films as "Cat Ballou" (1965), "Klute" (1971) and "The China Syndrome" (1979).
As the team investigates the death of a man whose body is found during a torrential rainstorm, Sanders (Eric Szmanda) is accused of framing a man for murder seven years ago in "Under a Cloud." Ted Danson, Elisabeth Shue, George Eads, Paul Guilfoyle and Jorja Fox also star. Lea Thompson ("Switched at Birth") guest stars.
