This looks like it will be a great series. I'm enthused about it!

 

I agree.    A nice twist as it relates to a theme for a spotlight.

This series will be co-hosted by TCM's Robert Osborne and writer John Grisham. Grisham is known primarily as the best-selling author of legal thrillers such as The Rainmaker, The Firm and A Time to Kill, the latter of which was adapted into a 1996 feature film that will be premiering on TCM on November 25.

Grisham? Nice. He seems like the perfect host for this type of spotlight.
