"This is the best thing for film and television I've seen in years."

"Look what you've created! A world of characters seems to have been born! There was some real energy and excitement in the room yesterday. I was struck by what a grand creation it was."

"By having these monthly readings you are willing this series into existence. It feels like it's inevitable that this show will happen, so people should get on board. Plus, the writing is really great! Great job, Peter! I'm excited to see what the next chapter will look like!"

After five amazing performances thus far - one of the pilot episode in December, directed by Paul Michael Glaser at the Cherry Lane Theatre, three episodes directed by Karen Giordano, creative consultant to Lee Daniels on the Academy-Award winning film, "PRECIOUS," and last month, the critically acclaimed Episode 5: "Father's Day," directed by Peter Loffredo - we are pleased to announce the performance of the next installment, Episode 6: "The Picnic," featuring an all-star cast of New York actors, taking the stage at Shetler Studios (244 W. 54th St.) in Manhattan at 7 PM on Wednesday evening, July 28.

Producers have never seen a TV series pitched like this before, because there has never been a show on television like this before! This is a show that takes us inside life on the gritty streets of New York City as it was in the early 1980's, a time of major transition, both in the city and in the country at large, a time that still is having ramifications for us all today. These characters, this amazing group of misfit warriors and working class heros will be remembered long after the Sopranos have faded into television history.

So, put on your Swatches, Jellie shoes or Gucci loafers, your Ra-Ra skirts, leg warmers or Members Only jackets, and, of course, your Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses, and come enter the world of City Rock... before it gets to HBO!
