WYBE 35 Philadelphia, PA zip 19129
Sat 11PM EST The Sun Makers eps 1+2 of 4
Pluto - an austere but warm planet. Six suns leave the planet in constant daylight, and support the entire human population. The design - kind of like certain early Blake's 7 episodes. Only one thing mars this paradise - it's virtual slavery. A mysterious combination corporation + welfare state government has taken the tax code to the logical extreme and is working humanity to death.
» the following week's edition reported that episode two was cut off part way through.
