The big event this week is Around the World in 80 Days, a miniseries remake starring Pierce Brosnan. Its first installment is against A Deadly Silence, the true story of a teenager who has her sexually abusive father murdered. For a complete change of pace there’s a Robin Leach special. (And you thought this year’s Oscar show was tacky!)
