"Father of the Pride," the first completely computer-animated series for primetime television, focuses on the magical world of Las Vegas' famed Siegfried and Roy-seen through the eyes of their extraordinary white lions and other animals. The series stars the voices of John Goodman, Orlando Jones, Cheryl Hines and Carl Reiner, and will debut on NBC in Fall 2004.
"Millennium Actress" is the second film from animé director Satoshi Kon, whose debut feature was the widely praised "Perfect Blue." The story looks at the mystery behind the disappearance of a great star of the Japanese cinema.
